Born in Dublin, Ireland, in the early sixties, Sam Aherne believes that, after seven hundred years, just like a salmon swimming home, he is a Viking coming home. He remembers being hungry. He still is. He often has had to sing for his supper. He still does. But, now it's his own songs that he sings. With a collaboration of arrangements between them, Sam, Dave Hennessy and Ken Warner, have brought some parts of Sam's life "to life". His military experience remembered with STILL THEY DIE. " After eighteen years being a soldier, he must know something about it", said Ken Warner. His contempt for false people with BABY, YOU DO. Remembering an ex - girlfriend WHEN JUDITH SMILES. Homeless and broke in Germany with STANDING IN THE MIDDLE. A fathers advise to his son in DOO BEE DOO. Taking a peak at death with HERE YOU LIE ALONE. The gentle, FALLING. Saying goodbye so many times, I MUST HAVE SAID HELLO. Breaking up and CLUELESS. All the other things that could have happened, IF ONLY IT HADN'T HAVE RAINED, and finally, WHAT I BELIEVE. Scarred and battered after 47 years, swimming up-stream to get here, SAM AHERNE is a Viking coming home. This album of eleven "REASONS", needs to be heard.
