david rooney and bandIn January 2016, David Rooney began recording his debut album ‘Bound Together’. With Declan O’Rourke as co-producer he put together some of the finest musicians in the country. These included jazz drummer Conor Guilfoyle and bassist Baz Rycraft who along with Jay Wilson on piano, create a broad soundscape for Rooney’s songs to inhabit. Add in the sweetness and spice of Palestinian vocalist Ruba Shamshoum and you have a genre defying collection of songs that draw from folk, jazz, and country, all played with more than a little soul. With the album now ready to launch, there could be some surprise guest appearances on the night.

David is better known as a visual artist. As a contributor to The Irish Times and Hotpress, his editorial illustration work has reflected the tumultuous changes in Irish society over the past three decades. Recent work has focused mainly on cultural projects including the BBC series ‘The Story of Ireland’, Titanic Experience Belfast and ‘1916 – Portraits and Lives’, published by the Royal Irish Academy
