|Laois Music Connect One Album|
This has been a busy month so far. I'm currently in studio and working on new recordings. They are coming together nicely. Emer Dunne & Drua, have a little of our version of the song 'Step it out Mary' on the player of our band page. Why not pop over and have a listen.
I received the opportunity some months back to be part of the new Laois Music Connect Album, 'Connect One'. It features 19 local artists based in County Laois. It was launched last Thursday November 11th.
Thanks to Mary Kavanagh, Fintan Kennedy, Mark Healy, all of the Laois Connect team and Laois Partnership for putting this album together. The album involved recording a track of original material by each artist involved. Today I found a review of the album online from Frank Parker ..
"The genres on display range...from the purity of Emer Dunne's voice to the fast and furious electric fiddle of John Davidson....Emer is undoubtedly a singer song-writer with a bright future ahead of her. For this compilation she has recorded a self penned number called 'Breaking Me'." High praise indeed. See full review here
I have to thank the musicians that I worked with on this track. They were Simon Graydon, a very skillful guitarist and the brilliant drummer Alan Ryan. They were both a pleasure to work with. The album is on sale in Anthem Music, Trax Record Store Portlaoise and Tower Records Dublin so get out and grab a copy and support local music.
