Matt McGinn Annie ( Many Moons Ago) Review

Annie (Many Moons Ago)

“This is such a classy song and so honest, I feel that Matt has lived through this scenario in order to create such poignant, heartfelt lyrics.

 It is perfectly constructed and with every four bars , he cleverly reveals more sub plots and twists to the story.

 Credit to Matt for sticking to a sound that oozes his own country background and County Down roots. In addition to his song-writing skills on this track, he also plays guitars, drums and piano whilst singing all the harmonies!

Special mention must also go to Niamh Dunne on fiddle, Sean Og Graham on accordion and Jon Thorne on double bass.”

The Shires feat Lauren Alaina | Lightning Strikes

Review From its acapella start, ‘Lightening Strikes’ builds to a catchy rhythm that has more rises and falls than a quickstep. The clever chorus is punctuated with effective tacets, giving it that traditional country sound that will stay with you long after the song...

Sean C Kennedy | Wild Forever

Review   Wild Forever by Scottish born Sean Kennedy is a song that oozes freedom, images of wide open spaces with a worry free existence and it wouldn’t be out of place as the track of choice for a romantic Viennese waltz on Strictly.  Now living permanently in...
