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)
It took me quite a lot of time to decide whether or not to put this song online…and the songs which are to follow. It was a decision I made on the basis of history and my love for history and I didn’t want to miss the chance due to the significance of 2016. This year is the centenary of the Easter Rising, which was an event which took place throughout Ireland in 1916 with a focus on Dublin City Centre. It was an event which triggered a whole series of events which would transform the political landscape of Ireland forever.
The song itself is a brief, maybe rushed, synopsis of Ireland’s history. There are a lot of different events alluded to in the song and the order is quite disjointed. I think that this is because when I wrote the song different periods of Ireland’s history were coming to me at different times and I liked the way that it did not flow chronologically.
