Getting Closer

February 5, 2009

This songwriting and performing lark throws up some surprises every now and again.

Late last night I got a reply to an email I had sent almost a year ago to AnnMarie O’Grady who had promoted a gig in our office through some friends. I asked for a support slot. Unfortunately at the time someone was already lined up.

AnnMarie is playing in a well known Dublin venue this Sunday and I’m playing support.

Back in 2007 I set myself a few goals for my music. One of them was to play Whelans because it’s one of the better gigs in town.

Hopefully this will be the first of many. I like the idea of playing little anonymous gigs for 2-3 years and getting my name around town as a reliable interesting person to open a show. Now and again just playing my own gig would be nice but I’m realistic enough to know that I’m not 19 anymore.

So thank you AnnMarie. I hope your audience like my material.

In other news I did an interview and live performance back in December for a local radio station.  Thanks to Dan Prendiville I have an MP3 of the show. You can download it here.
