Towards The First

For the attention of Cork, Clonakilty, Galway and Dublin folk:
My new band with Marc Aubele - Tenro - will be playing next week, alongside Laura Sheeran (who took this fantastic photo of us... these shows will also see the debut of new material from her) and Italy's (r) (Fabrizio Modonese Palumbo of Blind Cave Salamander + Larsen and Daniele Pagliero).
The material that I have created with Marc for Tenro is, I feel, truly some of the very best that I have been involved in producing. It's a kind of music I've dreamt of making for a long time, and has even exceeded the expectations of my imagination. There's been a wealth of outstanding material recorded and much of it tantalisingly close to completion. We could easily fill a couple of standard-length albums with the best of what we have already and still have more. Most of all I'm really looking forward to other people getting to hear it. Some tracks are upbeat and danceable, some soothing and narcotic, some challenging, some sinister, some funny, some harrowing, but all vibrant and intense.
The dates follow. Dublin people please note that the Dublin show is strictly limited to thirty tickets only, and is effectively an invite only event, so if you want to attend the Dublin gig you will need to inquire at the email address below as soon as possible.
