The lads are joined on this podcast with Mark Geary. Touring and performing live is Mark’s lifeblood. He has been featured on bills with musicians as diverse as Joe Strummer, Elvis Costello, The Pretenders, Coldplay, The Frames and The Swell Season among others.
Mark Geary is a Dublin born musician who has split his time between Ireland and New York City over the last 25 years. He spent his early years performing in NYC at the famed Sin-e Café alongside other up and coming musicians, including friend Jeff Buckley and Sinead O’Connor garnering respect and attention from both audiences and fellow artists.
Since 2002, Mark has released 5 studio albums and 2 live recordings. His second album, the acclaimed Ghosts, was named 2005’s Album of the Year by the Irish Voice and referred to by Billboard Magazine as “a collection of superb songs delivered with a quiet intensity that will endear itself to listeners”.
In November of 2013, Mark collaborated with Glen Hansard on a new version of his song Christmas Biscuits as a charity single for St. Vincent DePaul of Ireland. The song hit the Top 40 and was made the song of the week on Today FM, Ireland’s largest commercial radio station.
Mark will soon be 25 years drink and drug free and joins us this week to discuss his journey in sobriety so far. Matk’s website can be found by clicking here!
