A summer in Cork-summed up by one song!

No video but one of my all time favourite jams. Turn it up and enjoy---covered many times by everyone from Tina Turner to Missy Elliot, it's the original that still sounds best---check the futuristic intro, no wonder Timbaland and Missy took an interest! Willie Mitchell brought more to the world than his incredible work with Al Green, and this is just one fine example. "I'm Gonna tear Your Playhouse Down" is another of her better known tracks (sampled by Sunz of Man from Wu Tang Clan), one or two of her compilations are available at a cheap price so maybe try and track them down. In the meantime, forget about those dark clouds and feel the soul!

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. These days i run the Pavilion, a music venue in Cork, which hosts my Jam night every few Fridays also you can catch me at
