Okay, Here we go!

Time to get this blog thing goin on! It's a Wednesday afternoon here in Cork and I'm getting ready for my radio show on RedFM! There's also quite a busy weekend ahead in Cork with our St Patrick's Festival attracting acts of the calibre of The Pharcyde, Scratch Perverts, Human League and Dawn Penn to Cork. I interviewed the reggae/dancehall legend Dawn Penn for my show the other day and she was a pleasure to talk to-she even went to the trouble of sending me on some records the next day! It's great when internationally reknowned artists who have been around for decades retain the same humble attitude as to when they were beginning! It makes me want to tell even more people about her great music and her gig, which happens on Friday down at the Mardyke!
I'm also gearing up for a busy day Sunday with my All Day Music Day at the Woodford-serving as a good preparation for the Pharcyde's visit later that evening. Myself and one of my favourite Cork DJ's, Jeremy Murphy, will be spinning the best in soulful music from 4PM, mixing everything from jazz and funk to soul and reggae! I've got two big Rapture shows in the Savoy aswell (Thursday and Saturday) and a fair few radio shows so I better make the most of my last relaxing night tonight, as i head home and chill after my show! Catch ya tomorrow!

I've also held down long term residencies at clubs around Ireland such as Brown Sugar at the Kitchen in Dublin, U-Turn at Ri Ra in Dublin, Jazz Juice at the GPO in Galway, Thompson Garage in Belfast, the Soul Clinic, Dee-Bop, Meltdown and Mo Bounce in Limerick and i've played abroad in the United States and the U.K. on numerous occasions. I also write a music column for the Evening Echo and i'm a regular contributor to the U.K.'s Blues and Soul, the longest running black music magazine in the world.
