PRESENTED BY PAULINE FREEMAN
In 2000, Flinders first visited a recording studio, recording some original tracks which he had written while travelling around Australia the year previously. Playing a mix of acoustic and electric guitars, he began to conceive an idea of music beyond the understandable limitations of those two instruments. Anxious to remove himself from the singer/songwriter label, so tarnished at present in Ireland, 2005 saw him begin to experiment with his own unique style of music, blending looped vocals and guitar parts with a pulsating rhythms, hypnotic baselines and a soaring lead vocal line. Throughout 2006, and as a direct result of numerous Live performances in venues around Dublin, Ireland, he began to perform these new compositions live with the help of some clever engineering and numerous pedals. The intention of the Artist is to keep the music just the right side of experimental, hopefully allowing it to be as accessible as possible to those who listen to it. In early April of this year, Flinders took the bold step of attempting to commit to tape songs which had been in kicking around for about 18 months. Over four days, The Ground Floor E.P was recorded, produced, mixed and mastered and has a release date of the 11th May 2007. Increasingly tired at writing about himself in the third person, Flinders was forced to cut short this promotional piece about himself. He is now downstairs drinking a nice cup of tea.
Tune in again tomorrow!!!
