With his first serious project The Mighty Stef he made 4 records and toured the world incessantly from his home base in Dublin Ireland before moving to Berlin in 2015.

He signed to Saustex, a Texas based alternative rock n roll label in the spring of 2017, went on a 60 date US tour playing small clubs nationwide and releasing ‘Tales From The Megaplex’ a critically acclaimed slice of DIY punk that was 13mins long in its entirety.

Since then he has done a handful of short US and european tours, released one single ‘Dry Cider’ and has been working on a full length album during frequent trips home to his native ‘Dublin’. –  Debut solo record is due in Oct / Nov 2020.
