I got a bit of time to upload some new songs and other ones which I have had the chance to edit. Been a while since I have had the time to do so and it feels good to revisit songs which I haven’t listened to since I recorded them.

So here they are. Ranging from original songs (and an original song / story about the Irish Famine) and a few cover songs too.

I hope you like them.

Rumours (original song about the Irish Famine)

Last Night (acoustic cover of The Strokes song)

 

I’ll Meet You There One Day (original song for Palestine)

 

There Won’t Be Many Coming Home (Roy Orbison cover)

Hello (Adele Cover)

Rust (original)

Rivers Run Clear (original)

Junior Chills – The Auld Triangle (Cover)

The Auld Triangle

Knowing that I could never replicate Luke Kelly’s unreal rendition of The Auld Triangle, I tried to cover the song as best as I could. It is pretty far removed from Luke Kelly’s version, hopefully in a good way. I threw a few chords together and sang the lyrics as best as I could…I didn’t even attempt to sing it like Luke Kelly!!

Brendan Behan, the Irish poet, wrote The Auld Triangle. I think other than this song, the best thing I have heard about / from Behan was that apparently when asked what he was doing in Canada he said that he saw a sign saying ‘Drink Canada Dry’ and wanted to give it a go. Fuckin’ love that story!

Anyway…Here is my version of The Auld Triangle.

I hope you like it.

The Strokes – Last Night (Cover)

For my sins I don’t have a large swathe of cover songs. I think this is because I prefer writing and performing my own songs rather than destroying established songs with a bad cover. People will always compare a cover to the original, which is an obvious standard I suppose, so trying to make a cover your own is, I think, vitally important. I should note here that I have by no means made this song my own…I like playing it because it is a massive deviation from the original but, to my ears, still sounds good. Have a listen to and see what you think…
