Hello, I'm also known as Mister Ebby, and I'm a pianist and songwriter from Galway, Ireland.
Musically, I'm really interested in the overlap between indie folk, chamber/baroque pop and contemporary classical. There's a wonderful grey area where all these genres blur and blend together.
In 2011 I successfully used crowdfunding to help cover the costs of my debut album "Wires" which you can stream in full on my Bandcamp store, where you can also buy it if you so wish. It's also available on the Google Play store, iTunes, and other digital outlets as well as various streaming services. Take your pick!
I've worked as a pianist for a number of music acts over the years: jazz singers, rock bands, folk songwriters... and I make my living working as a Musical Director of a youth theatre group mostly alongside my other music pursuits.
Other things I'm interested in:
android : currently have a HTC Desire running a Jellybean ROM. I'm in love with my Nexus 7 tablet, and my next phone will hopefully be a Nexus too.
I used to never watch TV, but now I watch a lot of TV shows, because they're awesome. Current shows I'm watching: Game Of Thrones ; Doctor Who ; The Walking Dead ; Supernatural ; Community ; Rupaul's Drag Race ;
I a big fan of a few music artists, especially these: Kate Bush, Joanna Newsom, Fiona Apple, Sufjan Stevens, Björk... but you can check out my last.fm to see what I've been listening to a lot over the last few years. It doesn't really keep track of what I listen to on vinyl though, I'm afraid.
