I'm a songwriter, painter and photographer from the West of Ireland. I listen to all genres of music including classical, jazz ,world music, new music, rock (not so much pop), but I think it is soul that probably moves me the most, especially the work of Curtis Mayfield.
I don't think I can categorise my own music as I like to experiment with different styles, but most of it falls into the rock/pop end of things. I do a lot of experimental work, influenced by artists such as Steve Reich, but the results are not always fit for human consumption
I live on a small island in the middle of nowhere, with my partner, surrounded by nature and the stormy Atlantic. I love being out in nature, walking, gardening, swimming (a somewhat masochistic pastime even in the heart of summer, haha) and have a particular passion for wild flowers which, though abundant here, are sadly at huge risk from habitat destruction and climate change.
