Dedicated in the memory of my dear friend

With the passing of my dear friend Sister Ethna of the Convent of Mercy Rosscarbery on January 29th, 2013 I know that so many others as I do, will miss her dearly.

"You have touched so many hearts in your many years on this earth and every moment will be remembered. Your passion was to always reach out to those who struggled in life whether it was in or out of the classroom. No matter how difficult things got, your hand, your soft voice and willing heart were always there reaching out to those who needed it the most. I know I was one and will never forget your kindness and your constant reminders to me that if you stick with something and give it your all, you will always get the result you are looking for. I know you always enjoyed when people got involved in music and yes we had many great times at the school concerts in the Parish Hall. I find it hard to say how much I will truly miss you and will leave it to my heart to say goodbye with this composition I wrote in remembrance of you. I will remember you always as my friend, my teacher and most of all the true lady that you were."    -John-

From a different time and place, the creation begins all over again

John brings you a different tone and style to his music in this new single along with a special included track. We hope you will enjoy these new released compositions.

"I had the opportunity to play on a grand piano for the first time ever in a small empty concert hall. I sat down and "Final Day" was written there and then, recorded on the spot to my iPhone. Again, a moment not to be lost. I hope you will enjoy this un-rehearsed piece in its original pure format. A few days later I found myself in a music store and sat at an electronic keyboard and re-wrote "Final Day" with a twist and "End of Day" was born. The canvas textures can be many for me but the brush, only one, and the beauty of music is that a composition is never really final until I stop playing it. It can be endlessly modified to create new and beautiful compositions all the time. So the brush has been put away on these two compositions with no mixing or mastering, just as is, and I hope you enjoy hearing them in their pure format as I did creating them". -John-

Change can bring about magical and wonderful moments

For this single, John stepped off from his usual keyboard that he records on and onto another that he has never played on before and it was a refreshing change of tone for him. It has paved the way ahead for his continuing musical journey. He is pleased to bring us this beautiful musical piece and we hope you will enjoy this latest single from John. "With certain musical compositions for me, I love to hear them in a totally new way. Different tones, different tempos, constantly changing and modifying in my own special way. It happens in the blink of an eye for me sometimes and those are the best moments. I recorded this tune on my first attempt at modifying a previous tune and the result was wonderful. So what you are hearing is what I too heard for the very first time. My music is constantly evolving for me and with each composition that is added I wonder if the journey's end is near, a journey I hope will never end."   -John-

Finding that balance can be difficult, but when found, so rewarding

The musical highway never seems to end for John and he is pleased to bring us another wonderful keyboard composition. A break from the guitar compositions that he is currently working on. For John, it's a rest stop for a moment on the path to collect ones thoughts. We hope you will enjoy this beautiful single. "Life's little twists and turns on our daily journey pulls us in all directions sometimes. We try to search out for those moments in our day that will make us feel at peace and connected. Not an easy task these days. But once accomplished you will have found that wonderful sense of balance in your day. I hope you will find it as I have in my music"   -John-

In an instant it can be gone forever, don't let that moment go

The path keeps winding for John on his musical journey and he is pleased to bring us another beautiful musical piece. We hope you will enjoy this latest single from John. "When something we cherish so much is gone and we no longer hear the sound, the steps, the voice... we long for one more chance to hear even a whisper, just one last time. Our hearts cry out for what will never be heard again. We know deep down it can never happen, and we hold on to what keeps us strong. For now I will let the music speak to me and it will always keep the conversation going".    -John-

 

On this CD single there is a special added track which was recorded on the same night as the single. It was an improv moment where the "speak to me" track was played back over the headsets and I played along with it for the very first time. Moments like that come in the blink of an eye, and its best not to blink as it could be gone in an instant, and so it was recorded. Many thanks to Tom at Cave1 for capturing the moment on track. It could well be for me "the answer" to speak to me. I hope you will enjoy it as I did at that moment.  -John-

Your heart drives you, your eyes guide you and the path
taken reminds you where you've been

The journey continues for John, and he has brought us another link in that path well known to him. His signature style reveals itself more and more with every step taken on this journey and we are pleased to announce this latest release from his musical compositions. "We seek out our rights, and we search out equality, we fight for freedom and make a stand in the name of love, but we fight most for the right to live this one life given to us. The fire burns inside us to succeed in whatever we do. Some stand back from the flame that burns and others make a stand and hold dear what binds them to that flame. Hold on to what you believe in, hold tight to that light that burns within you and in doing so, you will never let go."    -John-

This single is dedicated to the memory of my father Patrick, who's dream was to live out his retirement in the village where he grew up in Ireland. He held on to that dream and lived out the rest of his days in peace with his dream in the palm of his hand.  -John-

There is no limit to what you can do, as long as you follow your heart

John has again completed another single as part of a journey with his musical compositions.  One of his very own favorites, "Struggle Within" encompasses John's guitar style in so many ways as he becomes one with the composition and guitar, effortlessly winding his way through each chord structure.  This composition began as a simple chord melody and John worked it into the composition it has become, by adding, defining & redefining the chord structures that have become his signature style today.  "We strive every day to manage our lives as best we can, to guide not only ourselves but others around us in a path that will lead us to life’s accomplishments and our own inner peace.  That inner peace is often broken far too easily, a peace we all strive for in our lives, a peace some will never see or reach.  The day to day struggle is always a challenge, but the Struggle Within is always the hardest.  I hope you will follow on this journey with me and hope you always enjoy the path taken."   -John-

Two worlds apart, locked in one heart, never to be forgotten

The composition is a step back into a life that was very different and its melodic flow will help you understand that no matter how far away that world can be, it will always be close to your heart. "I hope you enjoy this single as much as I have enjoyed making it, and may it take you back to a place that is close to your own heart."  -John-

The emotions captured in this composition are truly amazing.
This is definitely a must listen to single

Out of the many compositions that John has written to date, he took time to get this one just right and it really shows. As he puts it himself  “it is truly an emotional piece for me”. The composition actually comprises of two different and very unique compositions in their own right. John has combined them seamlessly to produce this magical and unique melody. As always, his amazing skill for both composition of songs and mastery of the keyboard is just what we've come to expect from him. "Enjoy A Moment In Time and may you take that moment to cherish the wonderful world around you."  -John-
