Acrobat – 2012
J Eoin’s second studio album ‘Acrobat’ reveals the very real nature of a Celtic soul transiting through the wider world while keeping one eye and a firm hand on the ever changing reality of life in the Big City.
In this case…London.
Crescent Moon Records presents ‘Acrobat’ produced by the legendary Gerry Diver. The album features J Eoin on vocals and guitars ably backed up by multi-instrumentalist Gerry. The addition of Johnny Bridgewood on Double Bass, Jacquelyn Hynes on flutes and a selection of well chosen guest musicians completes an eclectic line up that creates a spellbinding musical tapestry for J Eoin’s ‘Song Poetry’ to work its own particular magic. Elemental indeed!
UK release date TBA.

Exiles – 2005
The album ‘Exiles’ features a series of songs written during the period when I lived around the Holloway Road in North London and gives a home grown voice to the real life characters I met there who went by made up names like Sean One Shoe and Drunken Jesus. 35,000 Irishmen went home that Christmas in ’91 with only their last pay packet in their pockets having spent the best part of forty years building roads and bridges not to mention most of the Underground System in London. I wrote and recorded many of these songs on the album as a tribute to those men and women who arrived with nothing and left with a quiet dignity and hardly a word when their work was done, the likes of whom we may never see again.
