Damo – Best Of Album – (charts No 1 in Ireland)

As well as the 25 greatest hits, John has Produced two new songs for the “Best Of” album. From opener It’s All Good to closer You’re the Cure, via the likes of Kilburn Stroll,Colony, Spraypaint Backalley, Maasai, A Rainy Night in Soho and The Rocky Road to Dublin, this journey through head and cityscapes offers as much in terms of character and sense of place on the 50th listen as the first. Time and again, Dempsey reminds that he is one of the keepers of the flame, even if that accolade doesn’t sit easy with his...

Sinead Live review with John (MD and Drums) The Telegraph 5*

Sinead Live review with John (MD and Drums) The Telegraph 5*

Dressed in a military green top, battered boots and camouflage combat pants Sinead O’Connor stepped onto the stage of the Royal Festival Hall dressed to kill. She may have looked fierce but she was, she told us, too shy to be able to sing unless she was wearing sunglasses that blocked out the audience. That endearing and intriguing blend of strength and vulnerability has run throughout O’Connor’s music and life, and both were on display here. “Who’s gonna be the one to save me from myself?” she asked on the opening number, a cover of John Grant’s Queen of Denmark. In recent years O’Connor...

Lumiere’s new album

Lumiere’s new album

Produced by John Reynolds, Lumiere’s latest album My Dearest Dear is a unique musical journey into a world of pure beauty.   Emerging from a rich traditional vein of singers from Ireland’s County Kerry, Lumiere is something wholly rare and reaffirming in these often troubled times. Theirs is a musical beacon of hope, a shot across the bows of mistrust and misguidance, a pairing of authentic voices in an age of inauthenticity.  The singers, Pauline Scanlon and Éilís Scanlon, delight in the intimate act of singing. Their songbook draws from a well of spirituality, looking to past generations...

Damien Dempsey at Shepherds Bush Empire -The Guardian 4* review    John MD and Drums

Damien Dempsey is best experienced playing live. I first saw him in the summer of 2004 in a backroom bar on Dublin’s north side, near his home, where the young crowd screamed as though he was a boyband pinup rather than an angry balladeer singing songs about neighbourhood problems of fights and drugs. He’s a former boxer with a burly physique and cropped hair, but claimed that “underneath the rough exterior there’s a soft, sensitive sort of soul. It gets battered with the things I see.” Ten years on, his career has been transformed, but he looks and sounds much...

John and Damien Dempsey

John has produced and mixed Damien’s “Almighty Love” album. Almighty Love is an album full of love and the elements of despair that haunt and stalk a person’s life almost hand in hand. Right from the beginning, every song sits comfortably within its space.  The framework and music play off one another so well that the other musicians on the album, such as John Reynolds, Julian Wilson and Clare Kenny don’t just appear as extras they become the music, the extra little something that makes this album stand...
