About

I am an award-winning uilleann piper and multi-instrumentalist living in Los Angeles. Over the years, I have had many, many fans request a solo album and I have worked on that dream for almost ten years. Unfortunately, lack of funds has always kept me from being able to finish a recording. I am also attempting to finish paying off a fabulous new set of pipes being custom built for me. I cannot do an album or work until I get this new set, as I sold my older set in order to partially fund the new instrument. So the money that I make from this KickStarter project will go directly into funding the album and finishing off what I owe on the pipes. The album will feature myself on pipes, flutes, whistles, guitars, bouzouki and much more and I will also be working with a fantastic group of talented musicians, many of whom I have been very privileged to play with over the years. My aim is to produce an album that is true to the music, yet diverse in its influences; I think you will enjoy it. Because I have had many years to sketch out the CD and decide who I would choose for backing musicians, my hope is to have the album out and into your hands within the next year.
Everyone who contributes at least $15 will receive a copy of the CD when it is released (thus, you are not simply investing in me and my project, you are also investing in your own copy of the album). Your name will also go on a special website page that I will set up around the time of the album's release as one of the folks who made this project possible. Anyone who invests $100 or more will be mentioned by name in a special insert that I plan to have printed with the CD. Anyone who invests $250 or more will have a tune of their choice (reel, jig, waltz, air, etc) specially written for them which I will record and put up on YouTube. With an investment of $500 or more, I will not only write you a tune, but I will arrange and record it professionally and you will be sent the track on a CD to keep.
