Last year I had the privilege of writing and recording a song for Lorenzo Moscia's documentary "In the Name of Gerry Conlon." The documentary focuses on the true story and experiences of Gerry Conlon, the man who was the focus of the 1993 film "In the Name of the Father."
Conlon, one of the Guildford Four, was falsely convicted of involvement in the 1974 Guildford Pub Bombings, and remained imprisoned until 1989. Moscia's documentary includes the final interview given by Conlon about his life and experiences.
The song I wrote, "Saving Face," features both my vocals and those of my son, Fionn Brunnock. The lyrics draw upon Conlon's own words spoken throughout his interviews.
THIS MUST BE THE PLACE (2011)
I performed the vocals for the soundtrack for the 2011 film This Must Be the Place, starring Sean Penn. I worked alongside David Byrne (Talking Heads), who wrote the tracks.
For these tracks, I won a David di Donatello Award.
