Former RTE News Reporter Conor Mark Kavanagh will be back in front of the mic, but in a different way, with a showcase gig to perform an intimate evening of songs from his debut album "Arising From Within" in Whelan's of Wexford St on Sunday december the 9th.
A once-off band featuring Dave Hingerty from The Frames, Brian Hogan from Kila, and producer and singer-songwriter Larry Hogan will be assembled for an evening of original material, some covers and amusing stories of how the songs came about.
The Sligo-born singer-songwriter will star in the movie "Flynn's Flames" singing one of the songs from the album ,"Then I'm Yours" and two more of his original songs will feature in the movie, which is on its way to the Cannes Film Festival.
Kavanagh has previously been compared to James Taylor by Harry Browne in the Irish Times, and been quietly involved in the music scene for some years, with two co-writes on Eurovision winner Charlie Mc Gettigan's album, "Stolen Moments".
He has played live and solo in the Helix supporting Don Baker and received the runner-up of the month award in the American International Songwriters Association Songwriting Awards.
His debut album was recorded in three bedroom studios under the stewardship of producer Ronan Johnston, who has just written the soundtrack for the Sky TV hit "Moone Boy".
