Mick Duffy - . (Pop/Rock)

Mick Duffy is a 27 year old Singer Song writer from Ballymun in Dublin town. He started playing the guitar when he was 21 and joined local band Columbia in 2000; he became the rhythm guitarist and backing vocalist. Columbia were a roaring force in Ballymun and surrounding areas but never had the breaks to get their strong and solid voice to another level. They split in December 2001 leaving behind a void that has never been filled.

During his time in Columbia Mick was penning his own tunes and some made it to the Columbia repertoire but his ideas were meant to go another way, when they split Mick was first off the mark to get into the studio and get something down.

The first demo was in Oct. 02, with Stephen Shannon at the Fuse box the songs were, Evening sun, Hung on love and Inner light. It received some good feedback from various artists, Q, Mundy, David Hopkins and Jeff Marytn. He sent the demo to Grinningrat music,(scouts for labels in the UK)who are still interested and still in touch.

Outside of the studio Michael is always busy doing the Singer/Songwriter circuit. He has recently supported Q in Whelans and has upcoming supports with Mundy and Earthquake Hair.

Back in the studio Mick has started working on his debut album(Dec 03) and is hoping to have it finished and released by late 2004. The band for the sessions so far are Stephen Ryan(Columbia), Zamo Riffman(David Kitt & Q) and the axe man himself Q aka Colm Quearney(Lir, Dragonfly, Mundy and Gerry Fish)

Mick?s influences include, Elliott Smith, The Beatles,The Beach Boys Paul Weller George Harrison, Colm Quearney, David Hopkins, Paddy Casey.
