Singer/songwriter, Raymond McCullough, has been writing songs since 1973 - \"Hopefully,\" he says, \"they have improved a little over the years!\" He plays guitar (a George Lowden acoustic/electric, actually!), mandolin, bodhran and a little bit of keyboard and whistle.
He has travelled and performed, (literally busking for his supper, on one occasion!), in Israel, China (Beijing), USA, Canada, Scotland and Ireland, north and south - playing pubs, concerts, churches - on the street, if required! At the Fiddler\'s Green International Festival in Rostrevor, Ireland recently he was described by one of the organisers as \"the discovery of the festival!\"
Raymond has had a very varied career; including college lecturing in computing, selling French perfume, running an Internet cafe, publishing an Irish magazine and two books, hosting his own radio show, producing TV and corporate video and restoring a classic wooden boat!
He manages his own company, \'Precious Oil Productions Ltd\' - a media production company - and has been busily recording/editing documentary video in northern Manitoba, Ireland and Israel - as well as producing radio shows for Celebrate Radio, Shine 365 and other stations.
The new EP, \'Different\', contains 3 songs which are more commercial than his previous albums, plus an Irish jig instrumental, which was originally attached to another song on the album, \'Into Jerusalem\'.
