Jennifer Burke’s Ode to Spring | Ep #03 — New Music Friday

I have chosen an eclectic range of music for this week, a lil bit of pathetic fallacy to match the dubious weather and general feeling – mask on or off? Jumper or shorts? It’s not hard to see the confliction painted across faces on the Tube or in the high streets. We’ll get there, I’m... Continue Reading →

The Sound Sniffer’s Post Lockdown Mixtape #51

Where do I start on this one? A lot has happened since the last instalment of the Post Lockdown Mixtape. Time has shunted by at pace and there's barely been time for a stock take. Next Monday this blog officially begins to transition into other realms and avenues. It will be the big day, the... Continue Reading →

The Sound Sniffer’s Post Lockdown Mixtape #50

Writing has taken the back seat a little as a new obsession takes hold. I am totally obsessed with booking gigs now! I mean, it’s not the worst obsession in the world – but it’s a very tricky one to control. I’m addicted.. as soon as one is pencilled in, I begin squirrelling away on... Continue Reading →

Jennifer Burke’s Ode to Spring | Ep. 02

‘Where words fail, music speaks.’ An apt quote from Hans Christian Anderson for how I’ve felt this week. Motivation for work has been low, as like I’m sure everyone is feeling – I'd rather be out in the sun. I’ve found any excuse to go outside and frolic, however briefly in the glorious weather that will no...

Jennifer Burke’s Ode to Spring | EP.1

‘Beware the Ides of March!’ A Shakespearean Caesar was warned, but I feel the opposite. I welcome Spring with arms outstretched and the enrapture of a child on Christmas Eve.

It's been a while since I opened the laptop lid and decided to portion some time to a 'post' lockdown mixtape. I've been doing a lot of internal mulling and musing over the past few weeks so naturally public mutterings on The Sound Sniffer have fallen by the wayside a little. Lately, I've had to...

The Sound Sniffer’s Top Songs of 2021 :: Full Countdown

I'm aware there is still a portion of time left this year for a new song to arrive, sweep me off my feet and install itself as number one. However, I'm not much of a Christmas song kind of guy so I'm ploughing ahead regardless. I've got mixed emotions about 2021 - on one hand,... Continue Reading →

The Sound Sniffer’s Post Lockdown Mixtape #48

As we reach winter's peak, it's not exactly a 'post' lockdown mixtape this time is it? Masks are back, solitude is advised again - all things considered, I don't think it's as bad as last year - the year the Irish Government texted me on Christmas morning asking me to eat my Christmas dinner in...
