About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Complete a 2-month tour of the US with my band, The Enright House!

ABOUT ME

/// My life = my music. Hence, I give you my music bio :). ///

My life, my love, and my child, The Enright House was born in 2001 as a sleepy collection of field recordings and guitar loops in a cramped university dorm room in Chicago. Although I spent most of my life living in Europe and America, I currently reside in New Zealand.

Sonically, my music is constructed from various materials: a passion for the derelict and broken, prolonged spells of depression and self-imposed isolation, a deep respect for classical music, a somewhat warped pop sensibility, and as much hope and idealism as I can muster on my better days.

Perhaps, as someone once suggested to me, it is a music best suited for rainy autumn-winter days, or for slitting oneâ

PHILOSOPHY

To live courageously and leave behind a musical body of work of significant personal value that will outlive me. Everything else is secondary to me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am really interested in meeting people during our US tour, and avoiding anonymous motels. At some point, I would also like to help other musicians and artists by inviting them into my own home. Truthfully, though, it will be a long time before I can offer anyone the same courtesy, as I will be on tour for the next year.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Stayed with two wonderful people in Memphis, who took us out into town and showed us every kind of courtesy you could hope for as a traveler. Thus, so far, so good! :)
