It has been a busy year musically for Killala-based singer/songwriter Dennis McCalmont. Last summer he co-wrote and composed a number of songs for the Terry Reilly/Tommy Marren musical production On A Wing And A Prayer: The story of Knock Airport, which was a huge success, selling out shows at The Royal Theatre Castlebar, and raising much needed funding for the Mayo /Roscommon Hospice.
Earlier this year Dennis's song 'Carousel' was short-listed for the final of The Irish Daily Mail Fighting Chance competition for unsigned artists.
'Carousel' is featured on his new album Nature Of Life which offers 14 original songs, that McCalmont wrote/recorded/mixed and produced.
Think Neil Young jamming with the Fleet Foxes and you will get a flavour for these acoustic driven songs. The launch of the album will take place in Bar One Castlebar on Thursday, August 25 at 9pm.
Nature Of Life is now available in Hot Shot Records Ballina, Downtown Records, and The Music Megastore, Castlebar, or download on iTunes. For more details visit www.reverbnation .com/dennismccalmont
