ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I’ve been playing Irish music for a little over two decades, the last four years with the band Sine’ Ri Ra at the Nine Fine Irishmen pub at the New York New York casino in Las Vegas.

Before this, I lived in New York City (the real New York New York), where, along with Irish music, I played Rock, R&B, Jazz and any other type of music where I could get a paying gig to chip away at the enormous rent that hangs over all New Yorkers’ heads. At any given time while I was there, I was in eight different acts, pulling equipment from gig to gig through the five boroughs.

As anyone who’s been to New York can tell you, the “Big City” is actually a small, crowded place. In Manhattan, the borders between Chelsea, Soho, Chinatown, Little Italy, the Lower East Side and Little India overlap. The northeastern borough of Queens, traditionally the stronghold of Irish immigrants, also has strong Jamaican, Korean, Dominican, Indian and Puerto Rican communities. And yes, the Arab, Moroccan and other Muslim communities reside throughout.

I’ve walked through these streets the last twenty years, listening to the nuances and processing the din through the prism of my identity as a musician. If one were to draw a line of my travels from the top of a map of the five boroughs of New York City, that line would pierce through neighborhoods reflecting nearly all the world’s cultures…

…in short, from Dublin to Damascus.

Old and new collide
The arrangements in this album put a new twist on old favorites making it a unique blend unlikely to be found in the annals of pop collections, however those that enjoy the new are going to be pleased with a blending that coalesces sounds and instruments that seem diametrically different; The result of this fusion expects a new world view. Old and new collide in an impressive composition that conveys narrative in melody. The original instrumentals on the album are complex and telling with reminiscent bars that add complexity. While the reworking of the classics is fun and enlightening, the original work on this album is what engages and makes this album worth the money. This is not for those that do not support artists that take risks to create. In this Case the risk is Outweighed by the listener’s reward.
