Here is the new video from The Shoos and I love it !

The Shoos - Western Zombie

Here's one from The Shoos a few years ago. The song "Distance" went to number 1 in Ireland in the physical sales and helped get us a contract with Universal. We filmed it on Bray Bandstand and it was freezing but well worth it. I played drums on the recording and I honestly don't know why we didn't get Binzer to finish them. It always felt great to play this song even in soundchecks in front of each other.

It was great fun playing Suzanne Jackson (SoSueMe) and Dylan O' Connor's Wedding last week in Powerscourt Hotel

Here's another song from the Nashville trip .... written with Paul Mcdonnell and Ruby Amanfu ... the last I heard Ruby was in Jack White's band. You'll hear her voice is great on this song and lovely production by Dexter Green who has done Sons of Anarchy and lots of other stuff.
We wrote this in Ruby's house from an idea Paul had ... I couldn't resist the George Harrison style middle 8 ... There was some real movement on this song with 2 publishers but unfortunately tragic circumstances and and politics combined. Maybe it will have a chance to shine in the future. It's catchy as f**k ! https://youtu.be/MPriLDqtEMk

I went to Nashville Tennessee with Paul McDonnell and we wrote this song together / we spent most of our time writing in a freezing apt we rented for a month... we could have done that at home !
We travelled through NYC and we walked out of a cafe and he just said "Stormchaser" ... "I'll have that" I said !
Anyway we spent ages pulling and pushing the verses until we got something that made us agree .... I recorded about 7 or 8 versions but Pauls voice just sounded perfect o...n it.

Any thoughts on it are welcomed

He did a video for it too here it is https://youtu.be/I7U_ZO3Ru_M

As a writer and and a singer I never really share any of my demos or working details with people who are on my Facebook page .... I'm gonna try and do this a bit more as I'm always recording with great players in lovely atmospheres on quality instruments and I'm excited about music in general ..... there you have it !

Has anyone used an online orchestra before to play on your track ?

Yes .... Yes I like
