I am an Evangelist singer/songwriter from Northern Ireland. My song writing skills started after I had taken my guitar to the Ukraine for mission work 12 years ago. Whilst playing I'm in the Lords army at a children's home a young girl who had looked very sad began smiling and clapping her hands as I was playing.
I remember praying on the way home and saying to the Lord that it had
been worthwhile to take the guitar all the way to the Ukraine just to
bring a smile and a moment of happiness to that young girls face.
Since I came home I felt the Lord guiding me to write songs and to
date I have composed over 240 Christian songs.
The Lord has placed songs on local radio in Northern Ireland as well as
UCB Ireland and radio stations in the UK ,USA ,Sweden Romania and the
Philippines. The CD Thorn Upon A Rose was featured CD on Winds of
Broadcasting with worldwide radio airplay.
The song Audience of One was released as part of a compilation album
called Building Bridges to raise funds for homeless charities
