Cormac Neeson, the lead singer of Northern Irish rock band The Answer, will take to the Central Arts stage with White Feather his first solo album which propels Neeson into the life affirming world of Country soul, Celtic roots. Neeson blazed the road to rock n roll glory for the better part of a decade, touring the world, sharing stage supports with the likes of AC/DC and The Rolling Stones, achieving both fan and peer respect as not only an outstanding vocalist but consummate performer. Yet, recessed deep within his creative subconscious lay his Dylan destiny, a Celtic ˜knowing” that constantly gnawed for release from the straight jacket of rock n roll.
The result of three entrepreneurial self-funded writing trips to Nashville, is White Feather, a first solo album which propels Neeson into the life affirming world of Country soul, Celtic roots, Americana and laid-back Folk rock. Through a series of crafted, introspective songs, he delivers a vulnerable, personal and very different sound drawing heavily on his recent experiences. Neeson has co-written songs with leading USA and Nashville country songwriters including 2016 Tennessee songwriter of the year Corey Lee Barker; Steve O Brien, Blue Miller, Chase Akers, Blake Densmore and Allen McKendree Palmer who between them have sold in excess of 30 million songs.
Everything about this process has felt right. From the creation of these great songs to the cutting of the record, it’s been one huge emotional release for me.....like destiny unfolding the way it was always meant to happen (Cormac Neeson)
