The result of three entrepreneurial self-funded writing trips to Nashville, is White Feather, a first solo album which propels Neeson into the life affirming world of Country soul, Celtic roots, Americana and laid back Folk rock. Through a series of crafted, introspective songs, he delivers a vulnerable, personal and very different sound drawing heavily on his recent experiences. Neeson has co-written songs with leading USA and Nashville country songwriters including 2016 Tennessee songwriter of the year Corey Lee Barker; Steve O Brien, Blue Miller, Chase Akers, Blake Densmore and Allen McKendree Palmer who between them have sold in excess of 30 million songs.
In January 2018, he packed his bags once again and headed to Nashville to track 15 songs for the White Feather album at the historic and famous Studio 19, now The Sound Kitchen. Purchased in 1964 by Scotty Moore, Elvis’ guitarist, Studio 19 has recorded a veritable who’s who of great American artists including Bruce, Dolly, Garth, Alabama, the list goes on.
