The Homes of Donegal - John Walsh

From a piece which had it's first airing as part of the breathtaking 'Bring It Home' TV commercial for Donegal Catch comes a CD single release of the music in all it's full blown glory entitled 'The Homes Of Donegal' (TARACDS 12). Here John Walsh showcases his flare for beautiful, cinematic production while combining the haunting, passionate vocal talents of Universal recording artist Roisin O'Reilly. The piece is an epic tour de force which will move even the most earnest of listeners with it's rich orchestral textures somewhat reminiscent of Ennio Morricone and it's pounding dynamic rhythms.

John Walsh is no stranger to the airwaves having composed widely for television and Film over the last few years. His compositions will be familiar to many and include the title music The Premiership, The World Cup and the haunting strains, which accompany RTE's Rebellion television series.

Having studied at the Royal Academy of Music, John has both a classical and an edgier rock and pop background. For several years he worked as a song arranger and session musician whilst also working on music for TV commercials for the likes of Pepsi, Baileys and Eircell.
