After our extended holidays, Born Optimistic podcast is back with season three. What an artist we have to restart with. Beautiful words, music and melodies flow so naturally from Jim Page that being in the same room as him is a rare treat. He's from Seattle but has been visiting Ireland for a while. He's on an extensive tour of Ireland right so check out his live dates at JimPage.net and get to one of his shows.
Soft-spoken, humble and considered.
We need more men like Matt McGinn on this planet.
He's a revelation and a rarity. A songwriter who sings about the personal and now on his third album 'The End of The Common Man' he sings about the political too.
Politics with a small 'p' which is another way of saying equality.
