Fire and Foam, Young Men Grown Old!

I've been working recording this album called "Fire and Foam" like mad for the past year and a half. Some of the songs were formed twenty years ago, others are newly composed. I'm releasing the first single from the record into the wild today, the title track, Fire and Foam-a journey through loss and solitude, that includes the backing vocals of my niece Ava O'Malley and Roy Kelleher of the Irish Army No1 Brigade band on trumpet.

The album (and song) uses a-lot of elemental imagery-emerging in triumph from the destructive forces of nature.

"Come rolling thunder, let’s fall asunder,
in the blink of an eye, a long dream dies."
