‘Midnight Mission’ is Bill Shanley’s new solo album, which encapsulates and celebrates the early guitar sound of the 1950’s and 1960’s that changed music history. The mastery of this era of music is re-imagined by the illustrious Bill Shanley and presented by a top class band. This album draws on Bill’s world class guitar playing and ability to write great, timeless melodies. It features special guests Ray Davies and Paul Brady.
Bill’s studio is situated off Merrion Square in the heart of Dublin. Music production has always held great interest for Bill and something that he’s spends much of his time being active in, whether producing for artists and bands or working on his own projects. Here’s a glimpse at his studio set-up in heart of Dublin.
