Dublin based singer songwriter Dave Dwyer (aka Bead) releases his album ‘Battle Stations’ today on Spotify.
Produced by legendary guitarist Boz Boorer [Morrissey, The Polecats].
The album is, as you might expect, heavily influenced with the Boorer trademark vintage guitar sound.

And soon to be on the following too..
Took a drive out to Vartry Reservoir (near Roundwood, County Wicklow) a couple of weekends ago and took a camera. A sunny day for the most part and we enjoyed a walk along the bank before heading home again. While she wasn’t paying any attention to me, I took a few shots for The Little Red Hat website while shooting the river and trees. This one was edited in Adobe LR which I learned from photographer Nick Fancher’s amazing book Studio Anywhere. His book has made a massive difference to my Lightroom experience and how I now approach photography. Always learning, always experimenting… I will be posting more from the set at davedwyer.com .
Snapped these happy chappies in Portmarnock a while back. They have no fear of the camera or anything else for that matter and almost get themselves run over on a daily basis as they jump the wall onto the busy road nearby. Motorists please note…

Had a great trip to Clifden last year and took the Nikon with me around the hills of Connemara, there really is nowhere like it in the World.
This was shot somewhere along the way from Clifden to Renvyle and back.
We had the craic…
Stopped by the roadside yesterday in Meath (R154) to snap this field of gold just beside the now defunct Warrenstown Arms. I remembered I once played a gig in Warrenstown College back in the day, it was great craic and absolute mayhem at the same time.
It was actually a dark shitty day with very dark clouds, but it gave a lot of atmosphere, I brightened the clouds up a bit with a bit of help from Lightroom. What do you think?

The view from 27E, aerlingus Dublin to London yesterday evening.
Back in the recording studio working on a new set. This is the first track ~ earthlings.
Hard to believe but it started life on an acoustic guitar, it was recorded in the home studio and later mixed in a pro studio.
We are all earthlings, some of us know how to live while others only know how to kill.
Shot on the seafront of Clontarf, Dublin 3 on iphone. He never looked so good..
