Biography

My name is Gearoid. I was born in Europe in the late 1950s. In my present sojourn, I find my home in the heartland of America. My musical style is difficult to pin down. Blues serves as the backbone of much of what I do. Yet, this genre label is a bit too narrow as a description for my sound. A friend once told me he thought my music would work well in film soundtracks--low-budget Italian westerns! You be the judge. In 1998-2000 I played guitar and bass with a local blues band. Along with music, I have other passions and responsibilities, all of which are difficult to keep in balance. For this reason I am not currently playing live music. I am in a season of life where writing my own songs and sharing them with others has become a priority. One day I may return to performing live. I hope you enjoy what you hear.
