Thank you for your help, welcome to the family, your $1 is like a magical silk thread in a beautiful tapestry, making it all the more amazing. 

You're super, and I see you. Ya legend. 

$2 - A bus ticket or a cupán tae
$2
per month
Did you know your $2 covers a bus trip into the city to do all the things I have to do to keep this ship afloat like using office and rehearsal space, post merch, meet nice people who want to work with me. 


Thank you for being a lovely legend and helping me to do what I do.
 
  • Patron-only content such as vlogs, behind the scenes footage, blogs and demo uploads
  • A special Patron-only 10% discount code for my online shop


Thank you - you're helping to keep the dream alive! 
$5 - You're like a very fancy coffee
$5
per month
THANK YOU! 
 
This is the equivalent of buying me a fancy coffee or a pint once a month - I'm so so grateful. 


5 of your shiny quids helps cover petrol for my bandmates, new strings for my guitar, a return bus to meet folks outside Limerick, the cost of rehearsal space or the cost of actually recording some tunes. It's SO appreciated. 


In this tier you'll get everything that comes with the $2 tier:
  
  • A special Patron-only 10% discount code for my online shop

 plus: 


  • A free digital download of my first album Quiet Giant 


Thank you x
$10 - inter-city travel, rehearsal space
$10
per month
Wow you're brilliant, too kind altogether, thank you! 


$10 a month helps to cover most of a bus ticket to Dublin, where I go to work with my producers, have meetings, attend seminars and classes, play gigs. 
 
It covers a third of the cost of petrol for one of my musical pals to travel to and from Limerick for a rehearsal. Or a third of my yearly "distribution" subscription which means my songs all stay on Spotify etc!  


It's HUGE. Thank you. 


In return for your patronage, you'll get everything the 2 and 5 dollar tiers get:


  • Complementary digital download codes for any of my music!   

plus: 
 
  • A patron-only 20% discount on any purchase from my online shop on bandcamp - message me for your code!
  • A copy of my newest album when it comes out with a personal hand-written thank you, and a ticket to the launch gig of your choice
  • Dibs on limited edition merch - just send me a message and I'll keep it for you 
  • After 3 months at this tier, you'll get the Patreon Exclusive "you're pure class" sticker sheet! 
(When I first set up my Patreon, one perk at this tier was to have your name in the album credits for Sowing Acorns - because the album has now gone to print, this is no longer available.) 




Thank you!!

Ahh c'mere, you're too good. 
This is so generous of you, thank you.


25 could cover a bandmate's petrol costs to get to Limerick to work on some new tunes; it could go into the cost of our rehearsal space; it might cover a return bus trip around the country to meet other musicians to work on exciting new collaborations.

About

Hello, welcome! 

Thanks for swinging by to check out my page - I set this up because I really like both making music AND eating food, and I'd like to do a good job of the first one for all of your enjoyment. 

Well, that's part of it... A fairly simplified version of a part of it.

I'm an independent and unsigned singer-songwriter from Limerick, Ireland. Up to now, I haven't had any representation, management or a label and honestly for the most part I'd like to keep it that way. I like my autonomy, I like creating music and videos directly for my fans without the input of a "guy" who "knows about this stuff", and I like doing all that in the knowledge that no horde of middle-men will take a huge cut out of ticket and record sales. 

Having toured extensively over the last three years, I'm now in the middle of making my second album following the success of the first one (Quiet Giant).
I picked up an RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Award, and nominations for international awards like the Irish Post Music Award and the Malzhaus Plauen Folkmusikpreis off the back of it.

Supporting me here on Patreon means I can really throw myself into the process of making and producing new music - it means that when turnout for a lovely gig I've tried to promote isn't great, the musicians can still get paid - it means I can take a day off here and there where I might not have afforded myself that before - so thank you! 

"I'm just a musician, standing in front of a bunch of nice people who like music, asking them to support her."

In 2016 I released a self-titled crowd-funded EP, inspired and prompted by a song called Tug O' War which was about my struggle with self-doubt and anxiety. Tug O' War featured on the EP, but was reimagined with a full band on Quiet Giant too.  

In 2017 I released Quiet Giant - a really gorgeous, atmospheric 10-track album showcasing songs written across the previous 3 years.
It was served up in a Jacob Stack illustrated case, and features instrumental beauty from Hannah Nic Gearailt (Keys, Cork), Peter Hanagan (Double Bass, New Mexico), Ray Yrure (Drums, Virginia), Alec Brown (Cello, Arkasas) and Tadhg Murphy (Violin, Drogheda). 

Off the back of this release I did an international 100 date tour all over Europe in 2018. It was a special year. An intense year. But a special one. I learned a lot about who I am and what I want, and now I'm here. 

I'm in a place in my career and my life where it feels like time to tell new stories.
I want to throw everything at my new releases so they're just as special as my first, Quiet Giant.

Right now for my second album, I'm working again with Grammy nominated production team the Production Suite, my regular musical comrades and some new additions to the team, sensational videographers, photographers and graphic artists, and a whole host of other brilliant humans to produce this.

I hope you can find a pound or two in your pocket to be part of the process! Every single contribution adds up to mean a whole damn lot to me, so thank you in advance for coming on board.
