Arklow resident singer-songwriter Ger Kirrane presents his debut single, “Eye of a Storm”. The new release will be available on all platforms from 15th June 2018.
The song was produced by Brendan Carthy at the Orchard Studio, Enniscorthy. Ger provides the guitars, keys and vocals with Brendan on drums, percussion and expertise behind the desk.
This is Ger’s first release of an exciting project working with Brendan in the Orchard Recording Studio in Enniscorthy. For years he has been playing in pubs, clubs and festivals but always putting his own songs on the back burner. He feels the time is right to focus on his own material and see where it takes him.
