Headed to London in the morning to kick of the start of the promotion for “On Mercy Street.” Sitting in a local coffee shop in Derry bleeding their internet dry, listening to the final Master of the new album only to realize there is a bum note on one track… hahaha… back to the studio I go. Rome wasn't built in a day. Once thats fixed that is it! We are done and one step closer..... to the final product. Art work is also nearly finished just a “thank you” note and were there It looks amazing, they made me look really cool.

“The Very Best of Tour” is now well and truly over. What a whirlwind of a tour it was. 52 shows of awesomeness. I can’t thank each and everyone of you lot enough for coming out to watch us play. Thank you, thank you & thank you. I’ve said it once and I’ve said it a million times without you guy’s I would never be able to do what I love doing. Thanks for spending your precious time and hard earned money with me on the road, on music, my shows and at www.HarkinHeadquarters.com It truly is appreciated.
Even though the tour was amazing I’d be lying if I was to say I wasn't excited to come home… It was a long stint for me… I Was basically on the go for 9 moths straight. A bit burnt out to say the least! But all good now, getting rejuvenated and ready to rock the socks off “On Mercy Street” in the fall. Home is awesome! it hasn't stopped raining at all haha. It’s so good to be home though… Ive been out in my camper van, done some fishing, some hiking, waterfalls, Guinness, making soap with my Mom & Dad in their www.shivonsoap.com shack and plenty of Ireland. There is no place like home.
