No, I'm not Irish, but I do have a daughter who's part Irish and a son who's part Scottish. And I dedicate this CD to them. It's kind of hard not having a bit of celtic tradition when growing up in New York City and having a ex-cop for a father who's many friends on the force were Irish. I live in Florida now, but will always remember the St. Patrick's Day parade and how it inpired me over the years. Currently making music in many different genre, but this was one of my favorite non-electronic productions. It shouldn't surprise you when I say that Mac-Records through which I produce all of my music was named after my son's middle name 'Mackenzie'
