Having worked for years away from home John returned to Dublin in 2019. He gave up the business life to start his music career. He began writing and performing live, and two months in… BANG….. a global pandemic arrives!!! Undeterred, and inspired by other Irish artists pivoting this unknown world, he kept on track with his new career, writing and recording his debut album, City Stars, due for release Autumn 2021. City Stars is a collection of ten original songs about modern life in Ireland and the world today, through the familiar storytelling of folk music. London Bridge is the first of three singles before the album release, and describes John's experience of working away from home in London city. A business owner at that time, he quickly realized the loneliness both mentally and physically of his situation. The song describes the bitter experience of working too hard to serve the ridiculous cycle of the greedy and interests of the elite!
