Today in our ‘Out of the Blue – Chosen for You’ we present the extraordinary songwriter, musician Niall McMahon. While we are used to gatherings of musicians presenting music with all those little boxes on the screen, Niall in his Covid lockdown decided to do it all himself! And so Niall and his Lonesome String Quartet plays a wonderful version of the classic song ‘I feel Love’.
Niall is a performer, song writer, guitarist, musical arranger/producer/programmer, poet, novelist. His career has run from writing poetry and songs in his teen years alongside Paula Meehan and John Borrowman (the Atrix) through the post punk rock of Shocking Stockings in the late 70s – working with Philip Chevron (the Pogues) – Joe Foster/Slaughter Joe (Creation Records) – Robin Spreafico of Doll By Doll. Over the years, Niall has released 13 albums. More recently Niall has released albums on the Techno Prisoners Records label and performs both as a solo act and with other musicians in the Exeter and Devon area.
