Im back!

It has been some time since I have posted here but I am going to start again. Over the last year my new band Soma was juggling dummers around but now we have a full time drummer now, an old friend of the band, Eric who really is doing a great job. Another reason why I didn’t post here in a while was that I fell madly in love, and like a fool in love, I concentrated all my efforts and time into that. But I got seriously burned when that ended and as always the only healthy option is to completely immerse myself in music again and put relationships and falling in love on hold for some time yet!

So it’s quite an exciting time in the band at the moment. The final line up is: Dave on bass, Walshy on lead guitars, Eric on drums and me doing my thing. The songs are flowing out and we are recording a bunch at the moment. I also successfully completed a sound engineering course, so I have moved onto computer recorded so I am fully armed with my mac mini and pro-tools now and they are being but to good use. We have recorded 3 songs in the last week I believe. We are also putting electricity and lighting in Eric’s “drum hole” (practice room!) as practicing with the band will get pretty full on in the next week or so. Expect gigs at Christmas.

Another thing I did over the last year was get guitar lessons; hopefully they will have benefited me in some way.

Some other things I did over the last year: saw the Smashing Pumpkins, bought an American Strat, saw the Shins in Paris, told someone I loved her every single day, was made a permanent Engineer, got my heart broken, did a parachute jump, did a bungee jump, bought an apple mac, went to Italy skiing, went to Paris, went to Germany, went to London, drove around the perimeter of Ireland in a bus to see ash in Donegal.


i am currently listing to:

"Nighttiming" by Coconut Records,
"Gish" by The Smashing Pumpkins,
"Twilight of Innocence" by Ash,
"Libratd" by VR,
