One of my favourite songs of all time is”Soldier On” by Midnight Well from 1977.
Thom Moore, a Californian folk singer who lived in Sligo and later Russia, wrote this
about his Grandfather who disappeared one night. A deep piece of personal history.

Luke Slott brings us the stunning “Keeper Of Secrets” from his unreleased LP of solo piano pieces
“Don’t Go Back To Sleep”. Check out Luke’s MySpace at:

Finally, the video for Sol Seppy”Human” will always be special, you can watch it here.
