Tell us about yourself and your music
I am a 41-year-old Singer from the West of Ireland and where I live is only 8 mins from the Famous Ballyglunin Railway Station that was featured in The Quiet Man where John Wayne came off a train in a scene. Corofin is a beautiful village and very historic. And had many talented Musicians and Singers. And I am delighted and privileged to be one of them, started in Church Choir in 1993 and when I started Secondary school I got to sing solos in many places such as Knock Basilica and also years on I went on All Ireland’s got talent and that was an amazing experience to get near final 8.
Talk to us more about your latest release
Well Wind Beneath my Wings is very close to my heart as my late dad passed away on 23rd June 2005 and he is and will always be in my heart and soul and he was the most amazing dad and along with my Wonderful and Bubbly 83-year-old mum Maureen who is my Rock and my family including my paw baby pet Joey ⭐️
What inspired you to write this release?
Although I didn’t write Wind beneath my wings this song is a cover. It reminds me of my dad an angel in heaven.
Describe the writing and recording process
Recorded in Cong in Co. Mayo is not far from the famous Ashford Castle. My Album took a few months to complete. And I did a cover of Wind Beneath my Wings in an Irish Twist. Changed a little to the way Bette milder did her version.
Any plans to release a video?
Any plans to hit the road?
Well at the moment we are currently in lockdown here in Ireland but when everything is back to normal I will love to hit the road even if get a few gigs.
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
My singing is a mixture of Country and folk.
Who have you been listening to lately?
Bette Midler, James Arthur, and I like a mixture of pop and absolutely love Blinding Lights Hit.
Who are your biggest influences?
I think big voices such as Barbara Streisand, Adele, and James Arthur. They influence me.

Oh my goodness, I would love to go to Lapland as I am a big child at heart and absolutely love Christmas. Be a dream of mine, snow, reindeers, log fire and tranquility, and singing Christmas songs. I would bring the family x
