The Edge of 17

Very exciting times ahead over the next month or so, all will be revealed in time. But let's just say there's a lot more material on the way. 

I'll be whipping out the obligatory Christmas songs at a show next week in the Oh Yeah Centre Belfast, which will be my last show of this year. And then taking time to put into action all the plans and ideas I have been honing since my first EP release just before summer.

Slowly but surely this project is taking shape, and I hope that'll begin to become more obvious in a more public sense early next year.

Thank you for your patience - this will be worth the wait.

I wish you all the best for a happy Christmas and New Year!


October 17 Update

Hello again friend!

Well I have completed the demo process. From 170 (approximately) songs down to 41, I have picked what I thought COULD potentially be a single. I'm too close to them at this point to judge, but I will make my mind up soon - I need to get more music out into the world.

Some of the styles are pretty disparate, the next couple of months should make for an interesting listen.

So in the meantime I am very busy with work, sharing and communicating information about climate change. Sometimes the lure of a proper tour crosses my mind - something to consider for the new year with the new songs out. In the meantime I'm playing a show at Sligo Live Festival,  next week which is really exciting! So I get to try out some of the new demo tracks on a captive audience. It's in a Vegan cafe called Sweet Beat - never been to one before, so I'm hoping they can provide some great food too.

Anyway, speak soon. Phase two is definitely up and running.


Fallin' out of Touch

It's been quite a while since I last posted. As a team of 1 it can be pretty hard to find the time amidst the busy schedule I give myself. And periods of complacency or doubt affect everyone. I suppose things just roll along faster than you notice until too much time has passed.

But I'm still around, with more songs than ever. The debut EP is a base I can now build upon. And while I'm still kind of going in 'dry' as it were, telling people who I am, it's not so bad really. I'll have a really big demo process underway for the next few months, to choose the best singles to use as my next step.

Long story short. I'm going to post more regularly. Music is what I love, and I want to share it. The social side of things isn't why I get up in the morning, but I plan to make Glass Wings social media part of my day. I hope you will too.

JANA from Barcelona EP - OUT NOW!

SO here it is... after recording back in February, I can finally release my first ever record in its entirety. 

We ended up recording and mixing it in just two days, with a group of musicians I had never met before. It could have gone wrong, but thankfully they were amazing and really invested in the material. 

I'm definitely still finding my voice, and my feet, in music. But as a first impression, I'm pretty pleased with this, so I hope you enjoy it and like the impatient child I am, I look forward to releasing the next one.




Speak soon,
