BENEFIT CD 2010
A Benefit CD of some of my most popular songs at gigs over many years, the CD has been on sale since May 2010 .
I did all the work in my home studio – recording, mixing and mastering, and have some of my many musical friends playing with me on the album. All proceeds go to the Irish Cancer Society, the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association and The Irish Hospice Foundation – I’ve not made any money from this and haven’t taken expenses either ( cost of design, CD manufacture, royalties on the songs ). At least recording was free, done in my home studio, but I gave over 2 years to the project .
As well as the funds raised I’ve also got a good reaction to the songs on the CD and compliments on the production and overall achievement, which is encouraging !
I had a big launch party in Taylor’s 3 Rock, Rathfarnham in May 2010 supported by over 300 people which was a great start and I’ve been promoting the CD since then .Thanks to everyone who has supported my CD. Considering donations are small and non-corporate the total amount raised represents a lot of people supporting the 3 causes.
Thanks also to the presenters in Dublin City Radio 103.2FM (Kieran Kelly and Peter Grogan ) and in Dublin South Radio 93.9FM ( Mike Purcell & John Byrne ) who have given so much airplay and favourable reviews of the songs on the CD.
To date over €7,000 has been raised for the 3 causes ( see News / Blog for more details and updates).
Available thro' this website and at the online shops of the Irish Hospice Foundation and the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association , also at gigs !
Below are samples of some of the 20 songs on the CD
