Episode 89: Kiss My Arts – Ronan Gallagher
This week on Kiss My Arts, Ronan Gallagher sits down with Breifne Earley to talk about his life and times and how he ended up picking up the guitar and music taking over his life.
A chance encounter at Dromod railway station with an Australia bound neighbour who wasn’t too happy about having to leave home led to the words of ‘Long Gone’ being drafted on the back of an envelope while sitting in the car in the car park outside the station.
After a few experiences playing with bands locally he met Marc Geagan, a producer from Donegal, who pushed his music to another level. He gathered his band ‘The Ronan Gallagher Band’ together and Ronan shares with us about allowing members of the band to have their creative input and develop the collaborative process of generating and performing music together.
We hear a few songs from the band’s first album ‘Always Broke, Never Broken’ during the course of the show, ‘Long Gone’, ‘I Won’t Do That’ & ‘Shine’.
