"It's never too late to become what you should have been! " Conor Sheehan was inspired by this quote to dedicate himself to doing what
was always his first love,music and songwriting!
He had spent most of his life working in a very busy international aviation company and paying the bills and raising a family left very little time for music.
Eventually he got the chance to start songwriting seriously and in 2009 he got a phone call from the organisers of the Boston Folk Festival to tell him that his entry "Beautifully White"
had been selected out of 350 songs from all over the USA to be in the Final of the Songwriting Contest.
He travelled to Boston,performed his song on the big night and won First Place ! "It was a fantastic feeling to hear my song awarded first place ." He had never performed to such a huge audience in such a big stadium before."It was pretty intimidating but in the end very exhilarating,I was on cloud nine".
Back in Ireland he is writing constantly.I'm a pretty severe critic of my own work and I discard anything that is'nt good enough.I go for quality not quantity ." The listeners seem to agree .His appearances at the venues he plays are liking his songs more and more all the time.
He plays regularly at the Limerick Songwriters sessions and also in the White House and in Herberts."I am so glad to be so involved in music and when the audiences react to your work it's a big bonus.I have a lot of catching up to do with music and I'm really enjoying it".
