Anna’s Anchor – White Washed Corridor

A powerful new single soaked in boozy regret and sober defiance  taken off long-player ‘Everybody’s Welcome’ by Anna’s Anchor (aka Limerick’s Marty Ryan) released on September 14 and available to pre-order now.

Marty writes:

It’s about my struggle to come to terms with my mother’s alcoholism and the ridiculously difficult, dangerous path I had to take in order to try and find help to come to terms with it, as the Irish government tries to turn a blind eye to mental health services, especially when it comes to alcohol related abuse.

I’m a singer songwriter from Galway and also teach a few kids guitar on the side. Hugo Devitt who is 8 years old is an amazing talent and I think the above video proves this.

He went off and figured out my latest single, The Measure, all on his own.

Since I put the video on my Facebook page 4 Days ago it has received almost 40,000 views and over 230 shares, 600Likes, loves and wows! Plus 113 comments. I hope you enjoy it and give it a share …

This original song was recorded in an abandoned factory in County Meath, Ireland in May 2018.  The video was recorded in one take using multiple cameras by the incredible Anthony Kane.

Also people can see me playing this Sunday at the Maritime festival in Drogheda, The Ballast Quay Stage at 1pm
