Mal on songwriting: ‘There’s no better sense of freedom than to be able to sit down with a pen and allow your soul to bleed out and there’s no better sense of satisfaction when bringing it all to life through melody and song.
Sinead is the General Manager of the Irish Association of Songwriters, Composers and Authors, established in late 2009. IASCA was formed to provide a voice for Irish songwriters, composers and authors and lobby on their behalf.
As part of IASCA’s remit to improve the amount of Irish Music on Irish Radio, Sinead licenced YANGAROO’s technology from Canada, and launched Yangaroo Music Ireland.
Not happy with running two companies, IASCA’s latest initiative is PLAYIRISH Radio, on online digital radio station in partnership with the IBI and RTE and available on the Irish Radioplayer App, and via playirish.ie
