Hello, I'm Cormac, I'm 13 and I like to do a bit of singing! Back when we stayed at home a lot, I couldn't visit my family in Northern Ireland, so my Mum posted videos of me singing onto YouTube for my Nannie to watch. One day, a record label got in touch, that was a nice surprise! I got to record an album
'Hear My Voice' was released on Decca Records in December 2020.
2021 was a busy year too. Lockdown was over, it was good - bye to Decca but I really loved recording songs. Sooooooooo...... with lots of help from my Mum and Dad, I went back to the studio but as an independent artist this time, it was brilliant. I'd only been to London once before. I recorded 4 new songs, there's links to stream them on the homepage, I hope you enjoy them. A BIG shout out to pianist and Producer, Dominic Ferris who believed in me and gave me the confidence to record these new songs without the backing of a record label. In November I made it to the final of 'BBC Young Chorister of the Year' Held at Salisbury Cathedral, even though there was no audience, it was a real priviledge to sing in such a beautiful place.
2022 has been far from dull! The best way to keep up to date with all that's going on is to subscribe to my newsletter.
Thank you to everyone for supporting me, I couldn't do it without you.
I first heard this beautiful carol sung by Leah, a finalist in the BBC Songs of Praise, Chorister of the Year in December 2020. I've wanted to sing it ever since. BIG thanks to Simon Hanhart and Richard Cottle for doing such a brilliant job with the track and for their creativity with that very special, little extra Ave Maria bit, as a nod to my chorister roots.
Here's a selection of my favourite videos. ‘May it Be’, from the first ‘Lord of the Rings’ film, was the first proper music video shoot I'd done as an independent artist. ‘Empty Chairs at Empty Tables’ went viral in May when it was picked up by 'The Music Man' on his Facebook page and it’s now had nearly 5 million views.
I love singing all my songs, especially ones with really high notes. In one way it is a little bit sad that 2023 will see me bid goodbye to this very special voice range, but I like to see it as a new beginning and not the end.

A haunting re-imagining of the original storyline in Watership Down, updated to reflect the 21st-century issues related to climate change.
I recorded this over 12 months ago in August 2021, when I was still 12.
My new single. Recorded in May 2022 at Masterchord Studio, London. With the best piano ever!
This was my charity single in aid of 'Acting For Others', a charity providing support to theatre workers, especially needed after the COVID lockdowns
