A new site...it can only mean one thing....a new cd....
The new cd "the moon loses its memory" will be available soon.....HURRAH
The cd contains 14 tracks and features Cormac O Connor (on bass, drums, keyboard and telecaster), Colum Pettit (on violin), Aoife Regan (on vocals) and meself on vocals and a bunch of Godin guitars. The packaged cd is also a colloboration with the amazing photographer William Crowley. The digipak version of the cd contains a 16 page booklet featuring 14 of his photogrpahs that he chose specifically to suit the song. It is a beautiful colloboration of art and music.
The cd will be released sometime in June or July but before that I am making 100 copies (a combined total that will include physical copies or downloads) available. A pre-release special for the first 100 that want. You can purchase now...and you will be sent either the physcial copy (or the download code whichever you choose) within 48 hours. You wont have to wait!!
For A New Season for Love I used fundit to finance the cd production and promotion. And I was very grateful for all the support. This time I didn't want people to wait for it and wanted to offer it to people as soon as it was available....so I decided to plough ahead and offer (100) people advance copies. You can purchase your advance copy (download or physical digipak) here:
There is a new page on the site which will have all info related to the new cd . It is under the info section and called "Moon's Memory"
And you can read all the lovely reviews about the last cd in the "New Season" section
August 2013 update
I am delighted to be an offical endorsee of Godin guitars and delighted with the release of the last single from A New season for love last month and all the nice things that were said about it and the plays it got..and had an amazing experience being part of 3 shows at the Opera House as part of 100% Cork.
