Original Songs

A new song called Never Been Told and an edit of my tribute to Ireland called Ireland Bound:

 

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)

Rivers Run Clear (original)

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 – Someday (cover)

Someday (The Strokes – Cover)

I think it was timely to do a cover of The Strokes song ‘Someday’ since my wife and I are patiently awaiting the arrival of our first child hopefully arriving ‘someday’ soon. Continuing with the baby theme I decided to start the song with the heartbeat which we had recorded at an ante natal appointment. It wasn’t at all necessary to put this in but for my own personal gratification I wanted to add it in to add that sentimental touch to the song.

This is an alternative acoustic cover of The Strokes song but one which I think comes together nicely. I recorded another of their songs before but I wasn’t too happy with the recording quality (even though I put it online anyway) so I thought I would try my hand at another of their songs. It probably won’t be the last cover of theirs either if I am being honest.

I obviously don’t own the rights to the video which was created, which is the official video of The Strokes song, that’s why I put a filter on the video to show that just like my version of the song is different from their original so too is the video.

Anyway. Here it is. My cover of ‘Someday’ by The Strokes.
