Love all your stuff.

Always a pleasure to listen to your songs. Being of Irish descent makes me partial to Celtic music and you are a true master of the art. I attempt it on my song Heaven Knows, but it pales in comparison to Ronan Isn't Phonin' Anymore. I can thoroughly relate to Writing a Song for You. It's hardest to write for the ones we love the most.

All the best.
