Finalist in the 2021 'BBC Young Chorister of the Year'
Hello, I'm Cormac, I'm 12 and I love singing. In 2020, we stayed at home a lot! I couldn't visit my family in Northern Ireland, so my Mum posted videos on YouTube to make sure that my Nannie could still hear me sing. Then one day, I had a very nice surprise when a record label got in touch. My debut album 'Hear My Voice' was released on Decca Records in December last year.
2021 has been very busy too. Lockdown was over and we said good - bye to Decca but I really loved recording and I knew I definitely wanted to keep singing. Sooooooooo...... with help from my Mum and Dad, we went back to the studio and recorded more tracks independently. I had a brilliant time, I had only been to London once before and now I have four new songs, that I'm very proud to be able share with you. There's something for everyone, classcial and not so classical and I am also very grateful to the pianist and Producer Dominic Ferris for believing in me and encouraging me, giving me the confidence to record these new songs on our own.
OUT TODAY, NEW SINGLE 'Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas' Available to stream on all major platforms, link on 'Home page'
I sing solos, I sing in choirs, I sing at home and I sing at school. It lifts my spirits and makes me smile. I started singing when I was 7 and when I was 9, I auditioned and got in to 'The Halle Children's Choir and National Youth Choir of GB. This is really where it all began. I have been very lucky to perfom solos at The Bridgewater Hall (Manchester), The Waterfront Hall (Belfast) and the beautiful cathedral's in Ripon and Blackburn.
Thank you to everyone for their support me, I couldn't do it without you.
Make sure you don't miss the new ones. 'Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas' is released across all platforms on Monday. Recording my new tracks in 2021 was great fun, recording the album in 2020 was too. I learnt a lot. I love singing these songs, especially the high notes, I won't be able to reach these forever!!

Another little snippet of the great time we had back in the studio. A big thank you to my Mum and Dad who made this all possible for me. This studio session and my 4 new tracks were self-funded and released independently. A huge learning curve for all of us!
A more classical version of these beautiful words. This is one of the new tracks I recorded live in London in 2021
Live from Blackburn Cathedral. My Nannie was in the audience, this was for her.
Light up, light up ..... even if you cannot 'Hear my Voice', sound familiar? Lyrics lending themselves to the title of my album. All the more poignant for Snow Patrol's Northern Ireland roots. Just like my Nannie and my Mum, it was a perfect choice.
When I finished recording the album in 2020, I didn't know if I would get the chance to record in a studio again. Singing is such a big part of my life though, I really hoped I would. Fast forward to August 21 and there I was again. It was wonderful to be back. Masterchord Studio in London, was the venue, no second album just yet though! Just 4 new tracks this time, as my mum would say 'it's an expensive business this singing lark' I released Faure's 'Pie Jesu' in October, my new Christmas single is out on the 29th November (without a snowman in sight) and then 2 more in the new year. Links to everything are on my HOMEPAGE, please follow me on every platform that you can. "Hear my Voice", Classic FM's Album of the Week (7.12.20) is available to buy now. I am the youngest person to be awarded this accolade. Thank you for supporting me.
It's thirsty work, all this singing.
And I didn't even have to learn all the words!

2021 brought another really exciting thing for me. I made it through to the final of #BBCYoungChoristerOfTheYear it was great fun.
The competition was hosted in the magnificent Salisbury Cathedral and it was only the second time that I got to sing on TV. This highly prestigious, national singing competition, supports young singers like me and gives us a platform to share the beautiful music that we love.
A big thank you to the BBC, Songs of Praise and Radio 2.
The final, is hosted by Aled Jones and will be shown on Sunday 28th November on BBC1’s Songs of Praise at 1.15 pm. You can also listen to it later that evening on Radio 2 at 7pm
