I first met Colm O’Herlihy at The Slaughtered Lamb in London. I’ve got a beer in my hand while he and Chelsea Crowell are standing there with guitars, about to play a gig. Ms. Crowell had told me months before that she had a friend who would play with her during her UK/European tour, and it turned out that this friend was the same fellow who had put together some promo videos for her record, Crystal City and the full video for her song I’m Gonna Freeze.
The week before I met O’Herlihy, he had met Rodney Crowell. Ms. Crowell had played some shows with her dad in Ireland (where O’Herlihy is from)
