Since I moved to Belfast in 2012, I started working with Drummer/Producer and head of Lyte Records, David Lyttle in various projects. 2015, I played with David's trio with Neil O Loclainn who he had already worked with for a couple of years) for the first time. I really enjoyed the energy and interplay and especially the openness of the trio sound. The three of us didn't find ourselves together again until Feb/March 2016 where we did another show featuring David's music. After that second experience, I knew I had to find a way to play more with these guys in this setting. Both of them are a joy to play with, so I asked them if they'd be into building something and to my luck and delight, they were into it! So we did a few gigs here and there, I wrote some music for the trio as I dug into all my go-to trio inspriations like Sonny, Joe, Elvin, Trane, Branford, Josh etc. and just had a blast quickly writing some music for us to dig into. We recorded at the magical Grouse Lodge in mid November of 2016 and now we just released 'Dream Within a Dream' on May 26th on Lyte Records!
