All around the south.

I’ve been writing and performing since the early 70’s, when songwriters ruled the airwaves. As a young musician, influences like Jackson Browne, Emmylou Harris, James Taylor and Crosby, Stills and Nash shaped my sense of story, rhyme and harmony. My first radio performance was at 17.

I then spent over 25 years living and playing across Europe as a solo act and in various bands. But nothing fueled my passion for songwriting more than my years living in Dublin, Ireland. That’s why my music is a mixture of folk, country and americana songs with a celtic accent.

I love storytelling. Telling stories is as natural as breathing. Life is full of them. My goal as a singer-songwriter is to help the stories come alive. I go by Durand instead of Noel because of a story. I’ve moved more than twenty times. There are lots of stories behind that. I’ve lived around the world in France, Germany, Belgium, Bangladesh, and of course my beloved Ireland. I feel like I have lived a dozen lives in half a century and have only begun to realize what a treasure that is. The influence of other people’s lives, cultures and their unique stories seep into the lyrics and melodies of my music.

Be part of my music. Subscribe.

Or even better… become a patron.

With the advent of streaming, invasive label contracts and the formulaic approach to today’s radio, it’s difficult for artists to afford doing what we love to do… making music for our listeners and fans.

People who, through their encouragement personally and financially, help make the music happen are invaluable.

I’m honored in a way I can’t describe when someone becomes a patron to me and my music. That’s why I try to honor my patrons by giving a special access pass to be part of my music.

Free livestreams. Access to songs in progress. Early access to new releases. Priority access to live shows and house concerts. And the occasional random gift just for believing in me and my music.

If you’re not a patron, I’d love to have you join me in the journey.
