About the Iris and Fern EPs:

The piano pieces on Iris and Fern combine written melodies that break out into more free improvisation.  I wanted to record them performed at home on my upright piano and capture some of the noise and expression that goes into the physical interaction with the instrument while playing.  I hope you enjoy them!

What a great night on Friday at The House Presents.  Really enjoyed playing, what a great audience!  I always come away from there with exactly the right kind of warm fuzzy feeling.  Also thankyou to Gil Sanders for spellbinding songs, Lucas Gonzales for flamenco infused genius and We Raise Bears for their uniquely rousing songs, and Adrian and Mary for the Craic!

Sept 26th

Phew what a summer.  Our house is finally becoming liveable again after an all-consuming vortex of renovations.  And it's true.. somebody stole our sink :(  But we have a new one now, and more important than dishes.. the piano sounds great on the new floor.

Over the next six months I’m going to get my head down and get musically creative in writing and practicing towards recording.  To that end I won’t be officially plying for a while, but… on Friday 3rd October I’m doing a slot at ‘The House Presents’ in Annesley House on The North Strand, which I’m looking forward to.  It’s a lovely night quite unlike anything else in Dublin.  Come down and get a taste of a special vibe.  There will be other music too from Lucas Gonzales, We Raise Bears and Gill Sandell.  Full details in Concerts.
