A very big thank you to Brian and all the musicians and singers for all you brought to these songs, to Sylvia, Faye and especially Poppy for the hospitality and food in Sandycove, to Turlough, Usna and Anne for all the help with website and design, to my family, Noel Heavey, Red Events, for all your support, to Glen Hansard for the incredible guitar.
These songs mainly come from other peoples’ lives and experiences, I am so grateful for the inspiration you gave me, especially Gitti Maas.
And thank you Tommie Gorman for motivating me to write ‘A Seed Was Sown’. Many thanks to the organisation ‘Dalai Lama in Australia’ for an unforgettable experience in 2011. It’s a new morning in the world, and I’m off to sing some songs.
Thanks in advance, to Paul Scully, who mixes my live sound around the world, and keeps me sane(ish). To all the people who help with the gigs, to all the people who help sell the records, thank you.
If you are reading this, you have probably bought the record. Thank you for doing so, and I hope you enjoy it.
