Raised by his Irish grandmother, Liam was surrounded by traditional music at home and when the family came to visit so did musical instruments of various shapes and sizes.
Encouraged by his uncles, Liam started playing guitar when he was 12, gardening and mowing lawns in exchange for guitar lessons from a local session musician.
Adolescent rebellion kicked in hard, and he spent 20 years or so playing Punk, Indie and Rock in a number of gigging bands, and ended up setting up the UK’s hardest working function band.
After the shock of losing his grandmother, Peggy, in 2015, he was drawn back to his roots and a simpler way of doing things. He heard the traditional music of his youth differently and replaying all the Ronnie Lane, Saw Doctors and Counting Crows records introduced to him by his Dad, shaped the sound of his songs.
Writing songs that work in any setting - whether that's an intimate acoustic show or a full-on driving gig with a band – is a challenge and that is where The Odd Foxes come in...
