Touring around Australia was a dream come true for me. I spent as much time as possible swimming in the ocean and marvelling at the ocean life – Whale sharks, turtles and Tiger sharks on the Ningaloo Reef; dolphins in Byron Bay; gorgeous fish of all the colours of the rainbow on the Great Barrier Reef. It truly is a breathtakingly beautiful land & sea and we tried to capture some of that magic in our video. What a gift Mother Nature has given us – I am conscious now more than ever of the need to make a greater and more urgent effort to preserve and live sustainly within our enviornment.
During the trip, as always, I experienced life’s up and down rollercoaster like we all do. This video tries to grab hold of and appreciate the good and positive energy.
I hope you enjoy the video. Music & Adventure are my 2 great passions in life. Ty has done an amazing job packing in so much colour and beauty into a music video.
Thanks to everyone who made the trip so special.
Thanks again to those who helped me create the music – Stephen Shannon, Tom Domican, Aongus Ralston, Max Greenwood and Bill Blackmore.
Recorded live in Ireland at my studio in Donegal.
“I am the hurricane” was written by Brendan & Declan Murphy( The 4 Of Us), songwriter/ Engineer Enda Walsh & Keith.
Weird timing with the this songs name/ release date and the storm hitting the east coast of the states, it wasn’t intentional!

Kevin and James released their new album The Heart’s Bloodline on the Crashed Records Label earlier this spring, to some wonderful comments and acclaim both here at home and abroad. Indeed, The Shriven Dust recently featured on the Canadian CBC network TV series, Hello Goodbye.
The most recent single Joyous, has received some splendid feedback. We are now thrilled to share its video. The live video was filmed at Dublin’s Grand Social venue on Lower Liffey Street, one beautiful, sunny Saturday morning earlier this spring and features the simply stunning Line Up Choir.
“We were thrilled to have The Line Up Choir join us,” said James “and also delighted and honoured they choose Joyous to feature in their own live concert at the RDS following our working together.” This writer loves the song regardless, but the addition of The Line Up Choir takes it somewhere very special indeed!
Currently in the USA for Chicago Irish Festival and other live commitments, on their return James and Kevin head to Norway for Tynesfest.
The band’s rescheduled Dublin headline show takes place on Saturday September 8th at The Grand Social, on Dublin’s Liffey Street. Tickets priced €12 and €15 are now on sale from tickets.ie
**Tickets purchased for the original concert (at Tramline), which had to be postponed in March due to the snow storm, are valid for this new date at The Grand Social.
