    • Late Night Troubles (My Band!)

      Me and my band played a really cool gig the other night alongside some great bands from college. There was a great turn out and everyone seemed to be into it, which is always good :) It's cool to finally be back in the swing of things.

      If anyone is interested in what we sound like, here is a live video from our EP Launch back in May! Also, if anyone likes the soundtrack for Interstellar, there's a bonus surprise at the end of the song :) haha

    • Really Cool Gig!

      Played a really fun gig with a songwriter friend of mine who I work with from time to time. Playing in an old church gave all the music a really cool natural reverb and the setting created a vibey and intimate atmosphere. All in all, a unique and successful show :)

      This photo was taken during the set up :P I swear people actually showed up for the performance haha

    • My Latest Read!

      Hawking is a pretty good writer! I wasn't expecting this book to be as easy to wrap my head around as it was. I managed to fly through this book in about 2 weeks (Which is really fast for me haha). If you haven't read it or are thinking about picking it up, definitely do :) It's a fascinating read!

    • Bill Is The Boss!

      Bill Bailey was funny as hell last night!! (That's a strange phrase actually, 'Funny as hell'... I mean, I don't imagine hell being that funny). It was by far one of the best stand up shows I've ever been to. A comedian who mixes music with comedy is an automatic winner in my books!

      YES!! Finally this Monkey has got himself employed!. I went for a group interview in IKEA last week, which was a really strange experience haha. But I got a call last night from them saying that they would love to have me! I start next Tuesday!! Cant wait :)

      Anyway, I better go. I'm volunteering at Hard Working Class Heroes Music Festival today. Its kind of like Dublin's SXSW, so that should be fun! And then me and Ev are going to see Bill Bailey tonight, seriously cant wait for that :)

      Everything is turning up Monkey!

      Laters!!

    • College.

      Wow...It's crazy how you can go from having infinite free time to having literally no time to even make food for yourself. I guess its pretty clear that I haven't adjusted to getting back to the college/city living routine haha Its cool though, I'm just settling back into the flow (And by flow I really mean raging white water rapids) of things. I've had my first few classes of the year and it seems like this year is gonna be pretty full on academically, but also really interesting and different from last year.

      I'm beginning to realise that since I can't really post on here as much as usual, my journals are predominantly going to be centred around 'Where Have I Been' and 'What Have I Been Up To' haha. But I guess that's what happens when things get hectic. Seeing as I've kind of already covered 'Where Have I Been', I'll fill you's in on what I've been up to and whats coming up! ...

      -I've been working with a songwriter over the past 3 or 4 weeks and there's about an albums worth of material recording already. So I'll fill you's in on that as it develops, although it will probably be later on the year before things start moving onto the next stage.

      -Haha I actually did a photoshoot with said songwriter and the rest of the band in the city yesterday. So that was an interesting experience!

      -And I've got a few cool gigs coming up so again, I'll update as those things develop :)

      As for now...I'm just going through a big calibration period and trying to get used to life being fast paced again. Since I don't really have as much downtime as I did a few weeks ago I cant watch RT and AH videos that often, so I predict big bindge watching sessions very soon haha

      Anyway! I'll shut up now. I don't think I've ever made a journal this long before, so congratulations anybody who's made this far haha

      Here's a piano improvisation I recorded recently for anyone who's interested :)
