Throughout a career that stretches back to the 1970s, Declan has worked with Mary Black, Sinead Lohan, John Spillane, and Horslips, and appeared on albums by Moving Hearts and Christy Moore. However it was only in 2013, at the age of 62, that he finally released his debut solo album, I Love The Noise It Makes. This year saw the follow-up, Window On The World, featuring songs Sinnott co-wrote with Owen O’Brien. It also features Sinnott on all instruments and was recorded at the artist's home studio.
