A folk musician from Kildare is releasing his debut EP next month.

Before enjoying a solo career, the singer-songwriter was part of folk-rock act Valentine Black.

Peco's songs have received airplay on regional and national stations in Ireland and abroad. His debut single 'Safe Haven' was a Finalist in both The USA Songwriting Competition and The International Acoustic Music Awards. He has also twice reached the semi-finals of the UK Songwriting Contest with his songs 'Retrospect' and 'Love Oceans'.

He has recently signed a management deal with Live Loud Music.

He has released two singles to date, 'Safe Haven' and most recently 'Self Help - A Beginner's Guide'. His EP, 'And So I Arrived At The Start' is due out on Oct 20th 2017.

His EP will be released on October 20, with five songs that Peco said he is ‘very proud of’.
