After a wee chat with the inspirational Mr Derek Sivers, I felt now was a good idea for a “Now” page. Unlike the about page, this page simply contains info on stuff I’m doing and other stuff I’m involved in. Scroll down and read up on what’s going on right now – on a day to day!

About Now – In My Own Words
“SO WHAT AM I DOING NOW? Good question! There always seems to be something going on, which is good. I love ideas and it’s great to see an idea come to life; whether that be a song or a drawing – it’s what keeps it interesting and tends to keep me very busy.
Have a gander below at what’s goin on right now – all in my own words!”
- Living in Vienna… and loving it. It’s a new year!
- Recently recorded my new album They Might See Dolphins. Gearing up to promoting it now with radio and live dates. That’s a little bit away though. For now I is taking a break! First official release in Germany in March.
- Just finished cutting together the new ‘Faerie Tree” Video. Shot in Ireland
- The new festival I set up and ran along with members of the VSC (Vienna Songwriting Circle) was a resounding success.
- Writing and developing a new children’s cartoon series!
- In the process of establishing a new Music Sync company with my manager Jeff Burns called Sad Opera Entertainment.
- Working on co-writes and collaborations for other artists as well as working with producers on new tracks for sale.
- Other Stuff
- I manage the Vienna songwriting Circle: A songwriting group I set up in February 2015 with Stuart Neville, where songwriters come together to write, discuss, network and collaborate on new songs. We like to cry on each others shoulders 😉
- As we speak, booking concerts for 2016.
- I run a monthly singer-songwriter night in Vienna called The Acoustic Room – also set up to promote songwriting and songwriters in Vienna and further afield.
- Currently working with the Irish Embassy to set up cultural festivals in Austria for 2016. Watch this space!!!
- Trying to get some traction for my TEDX Peformance in Klagenfurt Austria. Also shamless but sure if I don’t do it… who will! Please feel free to share like a care bear!
- Marketing my music! I am also on CD baby (wink wink).
- Planning to set up a drawing class in Vienna – focus being on teaching 2D animation and cartooning.
- In the process of organising Irish language classes in Vienna.
