”Within You” (Music Video)

 

 

 

 

June 2019 saw us embark on the three week ‘Identity’ tour throughout Germany with Attila & Friends. I recorded many off-stage moments which so often prove to be the heart and soul of every tour. The following music video for my song ”Within You” is full of memories from this tour.

June 2019 // Identity Tour, Germany

It’s been pretty quiet here of late, but that doesn’t mean the music has stopped. There has been plenty of songwriting and recording and plans which I hope will take shape in the near future. I can also now confirm that the chalk-dust has been brushed from the shirt, and the classroom-induced exile which has prevented me these past months from being more active on the gig front will soon end. I’m delighted to be joining Attila & Friends on the German leg of their ‘Identity‘ tour in June. You can find the details of the public gigs below. There are also a number of German solo dates in August which I will be confirming shortly. Exciting times. Bis bald, lieber Freunde!!

‘Windows’ was recorded with my friend Justin Cullen (AKA Frankenstein Bolts) in the Winter and Summer of 2012 and marked an important step on my creative musical path. The EP is sonically diverse and a reflection of the various styles of indie rock, heartland rock,  pop and folk which influenced my writing at the time.  A big thank you must go to Justin, whose keen ear and arrangement sensibilities helped pull the very best out of these songs (Be sure to check out his own website at the link above.)

Windows’ is an album steeped in classic Americana imagery which completely enthralled me as a teenager. These returning images and themes are present on many of the songs – the road, the girl, the night, and perhaps above all else, the concept of young romance and innocence, and their place and power within what can often be a suffocating world.

Colm Egan – ”Wandering Irish Heart” at The Märchenzelt, Augsburg.

I had to the opportunity in July to take part in a day of video making in Augsburg, Germany with Attila and Friends and Dirk Wonhöfer. We recorded a number of original songs in the Maerchenzelt on blistering hot summer’s day including a previously unreleased song called ”Wandering Irish Heart.”

I’d like to thank all the musicians, and Attila and Dirk for their work. Thanks also to Matthias Fischer of the Maerchenzelt for letting us record there.
