Rich McMahon - Songs of Exile, Love and Dissent (Knotted Oak productions)

Star rating: 
3

A dozen self-penned songs make up the latest album release by UK-born, Ireland-raised singer/songwriter Rich McMahon. Not unlike Christy Moore, McMahon's clear vocal delivery is rich in Irish vernacular, especially on the sprawling story songs such as The Barman's Tale and Ten Miles From Dublin. Whilst addressing identity and dissent, McMahon also demonstrates his credentials as a fine writer of songs that pull on the heartstrings, notably A Mother's Lament. With songs rich in narrative and with just the right amount of musical embellishment, SONGS OF EXILE, LOVE & DISSENT provides the listener plenty to go at.
