Tune of Today

Since the ever knowledgable Albert Twomey of Plug’d Records recommended Marnie Stern’s self titled 2010 album to me a few weeks ago I have been well and truly addicted. It is fucking rockin. Think Sleigh Bells meets Fang Island…and then some! This is the opening track and the album doesn’t stop to take a breath from the first second to the last.

Documentary: Singing Through the Pain

This is a documentary I made as part of my Masters course. Inspiration for this piece of work came from the strength of Irish music at a time when the music industry and the Irish people face considerable financial challenges. All interviews were compiled and edited by myself. As I lack the requisite expertise in audio editing it’s noticeably rough around the edges but I really enjoyed making it and am very happy with the result. I hope some of you find it interesting.

My thanks to And So I Watch You From Afar, Ham Sandwich, Jim Carroll, Alison Curtis, Albert Twomey and Barry Lennon.
