I saved my IVF needles to make a music video….

After multiple failed rounds of IVF treatment, I felt that it was so important to put all the negative emotions into something positive. I saved the needles from my treatments and found a way to use them in a music video. The sadness of not having a family when you are doing everything in your…

Nally in Wonderland

  So here’s what happens when a songwriter with some crazy ideas meets a digital artist with the talent to make those ideas come to life! I wanted my 2017 images to be really imaginative and full of colour. I came across Paul’s work early last year and really loved how he could take a regular image…

Starting from Silence

I’ve set myself a challenge to write a song that fits in with the type of songs you might hear being sung in the wee hours of the morning in a little cosy Irish pub. Last Friday I joined in on one of those such sing-songs and sang a couple of my own particular favourites…

Studio Stings and Stairways – #sRated

As I typically do on a recording day, I made myself late with excitement. Yesterday was my first day back in the studio since last December to build some content for online marketing, demo a new track and get the ball rolling on what’s coming up for release in the next few months!! Days in…

The First #sRated Milestone!

Yesterday, through some internet search or another I discovered Rae Morris and this track ‘Cold’….

Happy New Year!

It’s the last day of 2014 and I have been completely useless with blogging updates since August! All of my attention went on my NCKids project NCKids which only really finished last week… More to follow on that. For now, I just wanted to wish you all a very Happy New Year and reflect musically…

A Musical Canvas…

So last month, I decided it was time to inject some colour into my artist shots and I organised the first of two shoots that I plan on doing this year. Being independent always gives you great freedom in your decision making, although with that freedom comes a great big load of responsibility, which can…

‘Just For Today’ Lego Animation Music Video

Last year I met a lovely young family from my town. Their Dad had only just passed away and wanted me to know that my music had been a great source of enjoyment and comfort for them. It was such a bittersweet introduction. I met them at the grounds of the church for the first…
