I am a session bassist and contemporary composer based in Ireland, most of my studio work these days is done from my own studio via Dropbox etc. I am also a member of Derek Ryan's touring band. I play Double bass and Bass guitar and most recently a derivative of the Chapman Stick, the NS Stick and several other instruments when I must :-) I have two solo instrumental albums on release called "End of a longer day" and "A small shadow" and my sister Susan and I are currently writing and recording a series of Audiodramas/Books called the The Todalie Stories, a series for kids of all ages including adults that refuse to grow up. comprising Text, Audio & Illustrations (by Vitya Malirsh), inspired by special people, the unseen little folk, and other fantastic creatures that inhabit the woods, streams and lakes on this island . The stories explore the concept of triumph over adversity and illustrate the importance of inclusiveness, the powerful impact of community spirit, bringing together disparate groups to achieve a common goal in a respectful inclusive space. The first story (abridged) is available as a Podcast called The Todalie Stories on all good podcast providers and on www.todalie.com. During lockdown I completed a course in Music Composition for Games in Pulse and Griffith College Dublin, and am currently involved in several exciting writing projects so watch this space!

Hi james ! As you no doubt gathered I did not get a chance to call you when I was there in June!! A distinct lack of wheels made it impossible to do half the things I wanted to do. However ‘mammy knows best’! Still it was great to see her and my sister, Lesley,my brother, Graeme whom you may have known from Arnotts, died a couple of years ago. Thank you for your number, will call you next time!!!.
