“The Orchard” is the third solo album from the immensely talented New York City-based singer-songwriter from County Meath. It's a collection of 13 powerful songs, and includes a guest performance by the Dublin-born Academy Award-winner Glen Hansard. There you have it, 10 of my favorite albums or 2012. Cheers to a new year and new musical discoveries!
