more news... back to home page...

Hey Folks,

I hope all's well with everyone out there. It's good to finally see some sunshine. There's quite a bit happening here so lets get straight into it.


The new album is nearly all wrapped up. It's being mastered as I type this. It'll be back monday so i'll have some songs on the myspace page straight away. Its called the Junkyard poet. I'm very excited about it. It's quite different to the last album. Of course there is a huge tour booked to promote it and I can't wait to get out on the road again and meet all the friends that i've met over the last few years. The full list of dates is below.


I will be playing with a band for some upcoming shows. It's Mark O Reilly on drums and Leigh O Reilly on bass and backing vocals. It's a great buzz to be playing the songs with a band. makes a nice change from time to time.


A song from the new album called Mesed up world has been picked for release on a compilation album that will be released in California called Acoustika vol. 11 on 272 records.
It will be distributed mainly around California so it'll be a great chance to get my music to a different audience.

Also theres a possibility that the new album will be released properly in America but I can't say any more about that right now.

On the street from the last album is set to be released on a charity album in England. I'll have more info on that soon too.


Another new video has been added to You tube. This one is from a gig in Tullamore last year. It was exxelently recorded and looks amazing. a special thanks to Sigma productions for that. Just type in Jimi Cullen in the search and it comes up third.


Here's the Irish tour so far. There's one or two dates still pending. They'll be on the myspace asap. I'm hoping to tour England, Scotland and possibly make a trip to germany and holland at some stage over the next year.
