"A loose cannon, wild card protest singer full of rage and irreverence"- FOGGY NOTIONS
"Self righteous but laced more liberally with mischevious humour " - TICKET-IRISH TIMES
"The main issues he covers are drugs, life on the dole, working in a factory, racism and prejudice, forgiveness, baldness, and! wife battery, has Jinx's brand of twisted humor marked all over them " - Tia Clarke TAIN FESTIVAL LIVE REVIEW (Dundalk).
Why I am Antifolk:
I believe in folk music, its part of growing up in Ireland, traditional music, ballads, yet I believe in free expression and irreverence towards the guitar as an instrument after all it is only wood and strings, I believe that all you need is one note, one chord, to get up onstage to express yourself as long as you believe in what you are singing about because if you really do believe then the energy you will transmit towards the audience will make them believe it too, this is what I see as the essence of a lot of the people involved with the Antifolk movement whose music I have listened to, I feel I will be in good company at the Winter Antifolk festival
