On this week’s show, I was delighted to be able to catch up with Trick Mist. Gavin Murray has been a guest on The London Ear previously but recently returned to Ireland after living abroad for a number of years.

The London Ear on RTE 2XM // Show 107 // Jan 30 2016

On this week’s show I was delighted to have the opportunity to speak to Johnny Ward, an Irishman, who I have to say, I personally find an inspiration. He is travelling to every country in the world, while running a new $1 million business from the luxury of his laptop. I mean, come on, who wouldn’t want to live like that.

I spoke to Johnny last week, before he headed off to visit some of the most dangerous countries in the world, including Libya and Afghanistan. #hero

If you want to read more about how Johnny has managed to fund his travelling and his lifestyle, check out this blogpost on his website.

Show 101: December 12 2015

On today’s show I had the pleasure of catching up with Trick Mist, aka Gavin Murray. Gavin is based in Manchester, originally from Dundalk and actually appeared on Show 1 of The London Ear with his band Bold Things. Living in Manchester has given Gav the opportunity to make music as a solo artist away from the band but I think this is becoming more than just a musical act. Trick Mist seems to be incorporating other art forms under it’s umbrella, which is pretty cool!

Here’s what happened:

1. The London Ear Intro
2. Embers: The Bitten Tongue
3. Shields: Face to Face
4. Clock Opera: Changeling
5. Jack Garret: Worry
6. Mura Masa: Love For That
7. Trick Mist: A Brass Angel
8. Chat with Trick Mist
9. Trick Mist: Cracking Settlement
10. Chat with Trick Mist Part 2
11. Trick Mist: Tampering Happy
