LATEST NEWS

Currently working on a set of new songs for his forthcoming fifth album, 'Southern Cross, Northern Skies' whilst preparing for a relocation back to Australia after many years in Ireland.

Latest songs include: 'Rebel Songs' and 'The Bloody Hookline', (Live Video Clips Below)
performed recently opening for Declan O'Rourke around Ireland. 

After almost 5 years in Western Australia I've relocating back to Dublin (Ireland) but I'll be back in Australia in November for Maldon Folk Festival 2-5 November 2018. (You'll find a little bit of the explanation and my story here on my Facebook Page).

Meanwhile, I'm currently working on songs for my forthcoming - and yet to be titled - 6th album (There's a sampler of one of my new songs - For The Gold - here on Instagram and embedded on this page below). My last few gigs (for now) in West Australian are listed on my gig page.

There are some clips below from the John Boyle O'Reilly Association show (pictured above) at The Cube Theatre (Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre - AKA: BREC - Western Australia) on Saturday 24 March 2018. Naturally enough, I played: Big Blue Western Skies (More Youtube Clips here):

I’m a big believer in the power making sense of who we are now with the stories of where we come from. This is an Irish-Australian story song that I’ve been singing my own version of for many years: 'Back Home in Derry'

Finally, this is a clip (below) of a new (as yet unreleased) Rory Faithfield song called ‘For The Gold’, also at the BREC Theatre Bunbury Sat 24 March 2018. It’s simple concept that I hope explains what the hell I’ve been up to, out here in the wilderness for all these years :-)
