Artist Bio

Influences:   Bowie, The Jam, Sex Pistols, Thin Lizzy

David G Harrington


You Tube channel is The Weirdest Thing, I have been a member since 2017.

Band Spotify link:


A native Irishman who has lived in the Uk for 33 years.

Been doing this since I was 15 years old, love music like I love life.

I play all the instruments on the songs but am a bass player as my primary tool. The rest I muddle along with.

Not the greatest singer in the world and where I can I press my friend Mick Gardner to sing for me.

He is awesome as you can hear on "Dark Side of Town" which is in my non FAWM 21 set

Happy to collaborate, I can add arrangements to guitar or piano songs, play bass, write music for lyrics I find interesting and happy to
master recordings if you want to add some sparkle.

Lots of stuff on here now but not all new songs. I am marking the actual new songs with [FAWM 21]

    A belated thankyou for your kind comment on "Choir's Back!"

    This is the lap-steel sample pack that I used on Country-song (as well as Potential Consequences and Easy For You To Say, so getting my money's worth already!):


  • @bigstarlet 1 day

    Hi Davey! Thank you so much for your comments, and a HUGE thank you for that remix! It took a frankly (for me) mediocre track and made it super special! As with nancyrost below, I will need to re-record this with new lyrics, but this will be somewhere down the road. Thanks again!

  • @nancyrost  1 day

    Hey Davey, thanks for thinking of us with the mastering. I was *really* struggling with my recording setup at the beginning of FAWM. It definitely got better by the end. This is actually going to get re-recorded with Mike doing the vocal. What mastering software did you use?

    Gee Dave, seeing the messages about all of those great downloadable songs we did, there does seem to be an ice and snow theme... who knew? Thanks for making them downloadable and more importantly, that you for the awesome gift of your collaboration and music!

    Hey David - just a quick note to thank you for all of your support and kind words throughout this month - I've enjoyed getting to know your music, and it is all because of YOU that I was able to reach 14 songs this year! Now that things are quieting down I look forward to getting to the vocals on The Far Shore. Cheers!

    Hi, I'm so sorry I haven't had a chance to add vox to anything for you. I stupidly agreed to collab early in FAWM when I thought I'd have more time, but it turns out being a new country, learning a new language and a new job is harder than I thought...who knew? I'm so very sorry. I hope we can keep in touch though. x

  • @kahlo2013 5 days

    Thanks! I would love to collaborate with you anytime!

  • @cindyrella  6 days

    I have to catch up listening! I have found so many co-writers here that it amazes me. And such good friends too! I will send you an email so we can keep in touch.

  • @cindyrella  6 days

    Wow! You are prolific too! I wrote this ghost one for a skirmish and I have always been fascinated by any Native American dances. I've been to powwows. I'm part Cherokee and Choctaw, but not a large amount. I hope we can work together again!

  • @alboe 1 week

    Hey, thank you for your kind words.
    I’m honored that you ask me to sing a song of yours but I’ll have to pass for now, too busy trying to get to 14.
    And I’m heavily insecure about my singing, so it would take up way too much time to get it done in a fashion that I would be satisfied with.
    I really only sing my songs on FAWM because there is no time between writing and recording to get singers I know involved.
    The plan is there to get singing lessons this coming year so maybe we can hook up next year for a collab?
    And if you would like it, I’m willing to have a go at it after FAWM when I have some more time and there is less pressure?
    Just let me know okay.

  • @berni1954  1 week

    YOU SAID: "Dublin born and bred" - My maternal Grandma was born and bred in the Coombe.

    Yes, I was a great fan of Moving Hearts and Christy. I got to Horslips late, so they sounded a bit dated by the time I discovered them. Still some good stuff, mind.

  • @berni1954  1 week

    I know what you mean about rejecting the tradition in favour of rock. I was brought up on rebel songs, the Dubliners, the Irish Rovers, etc. But "MY" music was the Stones, The Doors, Hendrix, etc. But the indoctrination seeped out later when I became a semi-pro folk singer. it also helped that Planxty emerged on the scene and lots of young people started to listen to them. Suddenly, Irish Traditional Music (with a "Planxty Twist") was "cool" - My mates stopped taking the piss out of me for liking it and I returned to the fold, so to speak.

  • @berni1954  1 week

    YOU SAID: "Always good to hook up with a fellow ex-pat Paddy."
    My family's roots are in Connemara and Dublin, where are you from yourself? I am an ex-pat (I live in Catalunya) but I'm actually a "Plastic Paddy" since I was born in Liverpool. But my passport proves I am an Irish Citizen, not a bloody "subject" of Lizzie's.
    There were so many Irish families in Liverpool, back then, that the joke there went: "What's the capital of Ireland?" and the answer was "Liverpool"😁

  • @berni1954  1 week

    Glad you liked me and Sheila's "Faerie Ring" song. I'm actually Irish, so the Dublin reference was on the nail.

  • @gordon  2 weeks

    Hi Davey, re Wrong Side of Town. I never actually plan out what I'm going to play in advance, but listening to it, I'm pretty sure it's just at CFG kind of thing, probably in that order. I don't think I used a capo on this one, but if it doesn't sound right aim for the 2nd, or third fret and see if that helps. Sorry I can't be more helpful, but I'm terrible at that sort of thing πŸ˜€
