Performing in the public eye since the age of 11 originally on the Tin Whistle then, moving up along on a wide variety of wind and stringed instruments till he started singing songwriting at the age of 16 . Made first Radio Broadcast at the age of 21. Since then LONGSdONE has made recording after recording. There was a period during the late 90s where he suffered from manic depression and withdrew from public life, personal life ,conversation ,social life and family life, By the age of 29 LONGSdONE was practically a hermit. His only medicine was his music. Even when he couldn't talk he could still play out what he was thinking on an instrument. It was this process that aided his recovery. He would never listen to radio or watch television and knew nothing about current events. It wasn't till he met the love of his life, settled down and had a family that he loosened up his Voice again. By the time he started sharing his music publically again he had a large collection of recordings coming from a time period spanning two decades uploading only those recordings that didn't make him cringe too much. They were after all only recorded as a form of occupation therapy for him. Here's hoping you might find one or two of these songs listenable.
