The EP is available on a pay-what-you-like basis, with all proceeds going to the two charities.
“…I decided to take some of the songs that had help shape me musically, and re-imagine them into a manner in which the production was stripped to some guitars, vocals, harmonica, handclaps and, most importantly, the sentiment. Because THAT is what Folk and Punk share.
Raw, honest, sentiment. Sometimes angry, sometimes wistful, sometimes funny, always true.
I decided to record these at home, or in-between album sessions, exploring what I could do sonically, sounding separate from the previously mentioned album, hence the fairly Lo-Fi recordings (hey, it just adds to the sentiment!) and to put them on Bandcamp at a pay whatever you want to pay price and donate every single penny/cent/bean equally to two charities I hold very dear to my heart.
First Fortnight is a Mental Health Charity that works passionately with the Creative Arts that I have worked with closely in the past, and will in the future, if they’ll have me.
I first publicly admitted my own problems with depression on Irish National Radio whilst working with them and since some people have done nothing to play down the notion that I lost my mind, I figure I best help these guys out*.
Action Cancer (Coleraine) was an organisation my Mother, who started me out on this path in every single way, was Chairperson of for a few years before she lost her own battle with Cancer 12 years ago today on the 25th July.“
