Originally From: Athlone
Currently Living in: Athlone
How long playing: I've been playing since I was knee-high to a grasshopper - all my life on multiple instruments.
What Inspired you to write: Voices in my head - no idea. it just happens - i was born to write songs. I started playing and immediately started writing. As a kid I'd be humming my own tunes.

The band also won the 2000 Heinekin Green Energy Band Challenge - biggest unsigned band competition in Ireland.
