I am delighted to have been invited to join the Irish and International Songwriters Guild as a writer. A little bit about the guild in their own words:
‘…The Irish (and International) Songwriters Guild (also nicknamed The Songbank) believes that these writers deserve higher profile on the international stage and we hope to achieve this by showcasing the very best of Irish and international songwriting talent…’

Just a wee (or BIG actually) shout out to my friends over in Nashville, TN at Stone Owl Music. They (Ryan Poole) have been involved in my recent live EP ‘Doon Tae The Wid’ and also involved in capturing sound at various gigs and festivals over the last couple years for the Doricana tour DVD we are working on. I hope to have Ryan involved in the new album in some capactiy also! (talks are on). Recording starts April 2013 in San Diego, CA.
Through MondoTunes, ‘Doon Tae The Wid’ is available at approx 750 online stores, here is the main one.

I am proud to be sponsored by Timberline guitars (San Diego company). I’ve been playing my T75Ac Timberline guitar now for over 2 Years and I really do love it. It’s great for strumming and finger picking. It is a very comfortable guitar to play. It’s my main guitar!!!
My string of choice! 🙂
