This album entices you in, the more you listen, the more it comes alive.
Liam McKaheys rich, dark, soothing baritone vocals are complemented by the musicianship on this beautiful record.
(Vocal comparisons to Scott Walker and Nick Cave)
UK press reviews....
"Lonely Road is absolutely lovely. It is a joy to have Liam McKahey back." - Pennyblackmusic
"essential listening" -Netrhythms
" like Nick Cave, the Triffids, Tendrils and Beasts of Bourbon. There's atmosphere and drive on Lonely Road" - Americana UK
"I found myself singing the opening title track and a further listen was almost epiphanal as the beauty languorously revealed itself."-Rock n Reel
"It's a divinely dark, cinematic outing full of beauty" - Whisperin and Hollerin
"a cast-iron beauty with Brown's keening guitar and McKahey's impeccable vocal" - MusicOMH
"I've been struggling to pick highlights, because the album is so strong, but `Lovers & Fools' `Inscription' and `Unheeded Tidings' are particularly special. Other singer-songwriters are just not in his league." - 17 Seconds
"his classy gravitas is just as suited to tender love songs. Not all is hearts and flowers, but the elegant strings add to the vocals' luxury." - Teletext
Liam McKahey is former vocalist with group - 'Cousteau' whose first album sold over 220,000 copies.

Described by one reviewer as 'one of the great lost voices' I would whole heartedly agree.
This debut self-penned solo effort brings dark romance back into fashion with a bang.
Brooding, heartfelt and joyous, all within one album, the stuff most singers only ever dream about.
Liam's voice- soaring at times, soft, menacing and beautifully bitter at others, perfectly compliments the excellent songwriting on show throughout.
A truly amazing talent....don't miss it.
