The amazing Circle Sessions got a well-deserved glowing feature in the Irish Independent, which I was delighted to be mentioned in, alongside fellow rhymer Josey Wales. Have a read of this witty and wonderful account of the journalist’s first experience performing at an open mic night, and her insightful interview with the Circle Sessions master of ceremonies and commander-in-chief, David Halpin!

On Easter Tuesday (April 18th) I was extremely privileged to take to the Whelan’s stage for the very first time in support of Liam Oragh’s album launch! It was a really cool night, and I got to perform two punk-poems and two spoken-word pieces to an awesomely receptive audience! Singer-songwriters Aoibhín (and her band) and Elly D brought down the house, and MC Jonny Tennant warmed us all up with ye olde English folk tune! Liam set the room alight with explosive performances from both his new album ‘The Arguments Against Insanity’ and his previous release ‘Only 2 Late if Ur Dead’- some nice use of flanger and overdrive! It was a killer night and an absolute pleasure and honour to be involved. My sister Caroline took some great snaps of my performance, which are below, and I’d love it if you could grab a copy of Liam’s wonderful new album at https://oragh.bandcamp.com/album/the-arguments-against-insanity !
