They followed this with some acclaimed releases on their debut EP The Ugly Tree. JD won Best Music Video 2019 at Brighton Rocks Film Festival, UK, for their song, 'Redeem'. JD has a trio of new releases with 'Give Me Light', 'Too Much' and 'Over The Rainbow'
"To celebrate marking 30 years since homosexuality was decriminalised in Ireland, I've released my own version of the classic Judy Garland song ‘Over The Rainbow’. Make a wish upon a star!"
Over the Rainbow is the first single to be released from JD’s forthcoming 2024 debut album, Now Is Our Time
“Like every child who’s seen it, I was enchanted and mesmerised by the film but The Wizard of Oz was also my first experience of theatre when I was taken to the Cork Opera House Panto as a child. It ignited a passion and love in me for the performing arts, singing and music. As an LGBT adult, the song continues to resonate for the queer classic that it is. Over the Rainbow is coming out of the closet to shine beautifully without being condoned for who you are.” – JD
