REWS, as you may know – is a band that I’m in with the wonderful Collette Williams. We have just announced that we will be releasing our second single ‘Death Yawn’ on the 19th February 2016.
Its a song that I wrote about an experience of an interesting character I had an encounter with in a hostel last year combined with the inspiration that the fantasy novel ‘Into that Forest’ by Louis Nowra provided that I was reading at the same time!
Here is the music video:

I travelled all over UK and Europe with Darwin, Tim, Gregory and tour manager Sebastien in October and November 2015.
I was the only girl out of the four boys (which is not a rare occurrence in this world of music), the token Irish and the youngest by a number of years. It was certainly an interesting and eye opening experience on many levels and I have learned a lot about myself and my skills as a professional musician!
I loved the tour on many levels as it allowed me to meet some amazing people (namely the support act ‘Peluche’ – amazing girls and an amazing band) and it also allowed me to challenge myself to the max on my bass skills – now my fingers are feeling ready to tackle anything! haha!! And hopefully the next thing that happens with my music or seasoning again.
I realised during this tour how much I love to play the bass, how important good honest communication is, connecting with people and ensuring that everyone feels listened to is. I really enjoyed giving all my energy to a performance every night whilst taking time to get to know people and explore the cities each day – usually by taking a short run around each city with Gregory.
Over-all, we had a great time and of course as every tour does – we had our highs and our lows but we made it through to the end and we now have memories that will last a life time! 😉
We have released our first single ‘Can You Feel It?’ and it has had so much amazing feedback! Really glad that people are enjoying it!

Thank you to my band mate Collette Williams, to John Maloney for doing the video and all the pledge music people who made funding it possible.
