Have you ever took a leave from your primary passion to find yourself liking it again? I feel that with blogging. After devoting most of my time riding my bike (fixed gear), I feel it is time to once again talk to my old self. Sometimes blogging can be an enigmatic part of you, in a sense that it has taken a big chunk of your psyche. But then, we add layers and in doing so we start to branch out into other avenues. If only we are superhuman but we have limited resources and one of them is time…
Thanks to this wonderful artist by the name of Jacqui Sharkey, I am once again enjoying the feel of the keys and also how thoughts flow freely. She has a distinctive sound. It reminds me of a beach at sunrise. Her resonant voice is both raw and elegant, displaying the frayed edges of what it takes to weather storms in one’s existence and still continue to be human.
The whole of the Moon has been covered by many artists, but this acoustic feel is so fresh that you just want to play it again and again. Sharkey is based in Donegal, the same place that gave us Altan and Clannad. The beautiful music video was filmed on location in Donegal, Ireland at Doon Fort, Portnoo, The Grianan of Aileach, Burt, The Poison Glen, Dunlewy, Gweedore and at Magheraclogher Beach, Bunbeg around August 2017.
