A musician since a very young age, my first exposure to the world of entertainment was at the age of 12, playing in a school hall in Dublin with some friends. As a child, I was influenced by my father's record collection which included Lonnie Donegan, Elvis and many traditional Irish musicians. I was also fascinated by my Grandfathers ability to play almost any instrument he could lay his hands on, and spent many an afternoon listening and jamming with him. I have since then been a member of numerous covers and original bands, and have gigged extensively around Britain and Ireland.
I am a guitarist, but since setting up my homestudio, I have discovered and enjoyed composing with other instruments and sounds. Normusic was set up in 2006 after graduating from Music For The Media. Since then, I have been involved with several successful projects, on which you will find more information throughout this site.
My aim for normusic is not only to be involved in all aspects of composing and recording for the media industry, but also to continue creating and recording my own material. I also enjoy recording with other artists, and have collaborated on projects with friends resulting in chart success and major radio interest in 2006 with Young Stanley.
