I'm so thrilled to play with my dear friend Reinhard Mey on my favourite TV talk show "3 nach 9". It will be broadcast on April 15th, 22h on "N3"...
Today my album redwood won the highly renowned "Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik" ("German Record Critics' Award"). I'm stunned, so thrilled, and so grateful. Thank you so much!
I'm really thrilled about the many wonderful press reviews redwood received in the last weeks:
"...Das Album fließt von Schönheit über..." (Folker!, D)
"...Dieses Album lässt einen einfach nur sprachlos zurück..." (Akustik Gitarre, D)
"... Er zaubert einen traumhaft schönen Gitarrensound..." (irland journal, D)
"...Ganz großes Kino..." (Folkworld, D)
"...His music sings out in sparkling perfection..." (Irish Music Magazine, IRL)
"...He's technially superb with sensitive arrangements..." (fRoots, UK)
You can read the complete reviews here. A sincere thank you to all the journalists!
On August 1st 2015 I was kindly invited to appear on Eurovision Song Contest Winner Charlie McGettigan's radio show Saturday Connection. We chatted about my new album redwood and I enjoyed every minute of it! I can’t thank Charlie enough for having me, and thanks also to Alma Hussey for her technical assistance! You can listen to it here if you missed it:
It was particularly moving for me to perform Charlie’s incredible song "Sometimes" with him. He co-wrote it with his friend Paul Gurney and you can listen do this tangent ballad here:
