Batphone

Acoustic version of Arctic Monkey’s Batphone. So far removed from their song but sure….

Gold (original)

Gold

I wrote this at the time when Lance Armstrong’s doping incidents all came to light and the subsequent many others who have been exposed. I think the song is sort of  a reflection on that, looking at the person who actually wins the gold despite knowing that they are not worthy of it.

Again a random one.

I hope you like it.

Dusting Off The Guitar

More Music

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)

Junior Chills – I’ll Swim Again (original)

I have been fairly quiet on this for a long time. Haven’t posted much of anything. Decided to go back to university to study so that alone coupled with part time work and full time fatherhood I don’t really have time to bless myself 😀

But I have been still writing and playing away in the background. I had a bit of spare time this morning so thought I would rustle this one up quickly and fire it online.

Hope you like it!!

On The Lonesome Road (original album)

Junior Chills – On The Lonesome Road (original album)

With the onset of fatherhood and a return to education I haven’t had the time I once had to regularly update my WordPress page. However I have been endlessly writing new songs to keep ‘stress’ at bay. I find that writing my songs are the easiest part but finding time to record them is quite tedious. Nevertheless I got a few hours today to upload not just one song but a handful which I have put into a wee album.

The songs explore a lot of different topics well the usual ones that I explore anyway. Although I love playing all the songs I write, I particularly enjoy Daydreaming, Stress and Ireland Bound.

So check it out. Give it a listen to. Find out a song which sticks out for you and let me know. Any and all feedback is greatly received and appreciated.

Hope you enjoy it.

Junior Chills – Sean South from Garryowen

Junior Chills – Sean South from Garryowen (Wolfe Tones Acoustic Cover)

This is an acoustic cover version I did of Sean South of Garryowen. In case you were interested in the historical significance of Sean South, here is a bit of an insight into it (courtesy of Wikipedia…Christ, I am getting lazy):

Seán South (1928–1 January 1957) was a member of an IRA military column led by Sean Garland on a raid against a Royal Ulster Constabulary barracks in Brookeborough, County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, on New Year’s Day, 1957. South died of wounds sustained during the raid along with another IRA volunteer, Fergal O’Hanlon.

This is a song which captures a snippet of modern Irish History. It sounds different from the original versions but I hope you like it.

The Diddly

The Diddly was an accident of sorts.

I suppose when you refer to something as an accident you run the risk of making it sound like a negative experience yet the opposite happened with The Diddly. Initially it was a song in its own right but we felt that the chorus was nice enough to stand alone with the addition of a riff alongside it. I think instrumental pieces are amazing as they evoke so many different images without having to use lyrics to do so…for me The Diddly (aptly named by Dev) is an ode to Ireland in a way in that it conjures up different images in my mind of Ireland. As such I put the music alongside a few clips of a recent trip to Kinsale to help set the mood for the song…well, in my mind anyway.

Hope you like it.
