How's it Going? Good I hope!
I have been trying to finish a second bunch of songs- This year's been a struggle with periods of feeling alright and then periods of the dreaded black moods. But, with the help of my friends in JAM Studios in Meath, Martin and Andrew Quinn, I am nearly there. Two legends and great to record with. Couldn't do enough for me. World class!
There will be 10 new tracks- I had more in mind but these fit together well enough, I think :).
I had a track called "Hangover Moon" written for quite a while and the others are newly conceived. The tracks are about the state of the world, love, loss & insecurity.
I don't know how I can play these live just now- maybe in time i'll be confident again to do that. Right now I hardly leave the house anymore. But this writing songs stuff is something I can do. Music can heal the soul a bit as they say.
Album prob July 2017. Here comes the Summer :)
I have promised myself that i will update this website a bit more often-i apologise to you clever folks who check on it that i have neglected your needs :)...
It's been a funny few weeks- i was featured/asked by Joe.ie to put down a few thoughts re a One Punch assault- i was in the wrong place at the wrong time many New years ago and unfortunately, I was coward punched from behind by a randomer while i was out with family-it caused a lot of mental issues with me to this day so i guess putting stuff down was a chance for me to bookmark it and hopefully move onwards.
I'm trying to get some new tunes together for another album-it'll be cheap and cheerful, but hopefully you will like them. I'm trying to get my confidence and health in order to perhaps play these live at some point, fingers crossed. It's a longshot, but let's work on it!!
I will put up some piano tunes or vids up here as i go, when the mood and the wind takes me. Col xxx
Hi-New single "FISH" reflects my love for all things Synth-Pop from the 80s-
It's a fun track but with a message about the treatment of our Oceans.
Hope you like-Out 18th July 2016 on Spotify and iTunes. x
A Huge thank you to all the friends fans and Family(all the F's) who took time to listen to , encourage and even buy the music-it's very heartening!
To all the DJs who played whether local or national radio -thanks a million.
Happy Christmas and Peace to all for 2016 x col
Very Decent Review by Frank Hughes in GoldenPlec-27/08/2015-
Hugely excited that a journey that started out in JAM studios with the great Martin Quinn exactly two years ago, has produced ten tracks for an album- Fairplay to the lads, Paul, Marty, Brian and Enda (the cuz's) and the Quinn Boys, Martin and Andrew, for keeping her lit at the end.
"Kicks" will be out in September 1st, on all the usual digital platforms and I'll produce CD's for radio and for anybody who wants one. Will update soon. cp x
