I'm a pianist and writer of chamber pop songs and piano pieces. I've been recording an album using a studio in Dublin that has a beautiful acoustic piano.

The songs aren't all about my own life - some are inspired by novels, films, and invented characters. Others are definitely about people I've loved, and friends I've known. And my love /hate relationship with Galway city, my home town, is another strong feature.

I've been writing since my teens, but always focusing on playing piano for other people's music projects more than my own. Recently, however, I've devoted my energy to recording and performing my own music, and it has definitely been a more rewarding experience.

In the video on this page, you can hear the wonderfully quirky piano I have at home, and hear how it's not really suitable for going the home recording route, and besides, I'm not a skilled enough engineer to get the kind of sound from a piano that I want, so I decided on using a professional studio. But it's definitely working well, and I'm very happy with the progress made so far. It's more expensive, but it is worth it to give these songs the sound they deserve.

That video gives you some clips of the piano riffs from the record too. If you follow me on twitter, soundcloud or facebook, or keep an eye on my blog, you might get to hear some short previews of the tracks as they get finished in the studio.

The money raised through :fund:it will cover the costs of studio time with the engineer, professional mixing and mastering, and any other costs directly related to the process of recording and duplicating the album.
