My self-summary
Hey I'm Phil. Im a full time musician. I love the simple life. I'm open minded to pretty much anything, cos well, there's no real normal person when you think about it, is there? Everyone has their own thing. But yeah, whatever you're into, hobbies or otherwise, however odd they may seem, are feckin graaaand with me.

Also, I will captain my own ship someday. I will.

"Can you not see me? Standing out there on the deck of a ship that's sliding into port. And there I am, a man of quality. A thousand doubloons spilling from my pockets like drops of rain"
What I’m doing with my life
Playing music most of the time, at home and professionally. I say professionally but like, I play Irish music in Irish pubs, so havin a rake of pints at work is like, half my job. I do woodcarving and painting so I make some wooden jewellery and stuff. Also, I can fix pretty much anything that goes wrong with a house. I get that from me grandfather :)
I’m really good at
Music has always been my thing, for some reason I could always turn my hand to a new instrument fairly quickly.

I do a wee bit of painting. A wee bit.
I'm a good man to have in a forest as well. I love everything to do with sleepin rough and camping.
The first things people usually notice about me
I suppose my height. I don't think I'm that much taller but a lot of people comment on it. Then its a bit awkward cos I dunno what to say to that...eh thanks? I grew me myself? Started at the bottom now I'm here..
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Westerns are top of the pile for me as far as films go. I don't like modern action films or remakes unless they're a bit clever. Basically I won't watch anything with a square jawed man with a serious face and a gun and an explosion on the cover.
Films about Ireland are up there too.
Michael Collins,
The war of the buttons,
The wind that shakes the barley,
Fifty dead men walking,
In the name of the father,
and of course, The field.

I don't watch much television but I think Sons of Anarchy is the best thing ever. I think it's better than Breaking Bad. Yeah, I said it...

Black Sails is what you'd get if you made a documentary about my daydreams.

Father Ted bates all though

Like, if I had a Tv that could only play three shows forever, it would have Black Sails, Father Ted and Sons of Anarchy
The six things I could never do without
My banjo, and five pints of porter....
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Music and people. And the steps I'll need to make something happen.
On a typical Friday night I am
Gigging or drinking or hangin out with my friends. Who I love to bits, but instead of telling each other that, it's much more fun to mock eachother and call them out on bullshit, because we are men and thats what men do.... Thanks society :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't really think of anything now, but I'll get back to this one

Haha I said that ages ago
You should message me if
You enjoy life and you're passionate about something. Like, really passionate about something. You seek out adventure and love the craic. Basically, if you have/love dreadlocks and walking barefoot then you're my type. Not limited to that but it's big points :)

Sláinte!
