About David Geraghty

[source:Wikipedia.org]

David Geraghty (born 30 September 1975) is an Irish multi-instrumentalist, composer and songwriter.

He is a founding member of Bell X1. Since 2014, he has been performing under the moniker Join Me in the Pines.

Early years[edit]

From a young age, Geraghty cut his teeth in a number of bands in his home town of Leixlip. He went on to play instruments such as drums, guitar, banjo, harmonica, and piano, and to begin honing the art of recording. In 1994 he joined the group Juniper along with Paul Noonan, Damien Rice, Dominic Phillips and Brian Crosby. Damien Rice left Juniper in 1998 to pursue a solo career, and the remaining members reformed as Bell X1, named after the Bell X-1.[1]

Music career[edit]

Geraghty released his debut solo album Kill Your Darlings on 7 September 2007, while still a member of Bell X1. His debut earned him a nomination for the Choice Music Prize[2] and two Meteor award nominations (Best Album and Best Male).

In November 2007, he headlined the 2FM 2moro 2our.[3]

On 28 August 2009, Geraghty released his second solo album The Victory Dance. The release of the album coincided with a nationwide tour which began with a live performance at Electric Picnic in Stradbally, Co. Laois.

Both of these dark and atmospheric[peacock term] albums caught the attention of film directors and editors[who?] which prompted a foray into the world of screen composition.[citation needed]

Geraghty, through Bell X1, has achieved major success in their native Ireland and in other European countries.[citation needed] Bell X1 toured in the United States in 2012.[4] Bell X1's album Chop Chop was released on 28 June 2013 in Ireland, an album that sees Geraghty back behind the drum kit. The track 'Diorama' on which Geraghty sings lead vocal, was used as part of the film soundtrack to There's Always Woodstock.

In 2014, Geraghty released his third solo album INHERIT, under the moniker "Join Me in the Pines".

In 2018 he returned to his hometown of Leixlip to perform a song from INHERIT as part of the TV series Jingle Jangle, which was aired on Irish television in autumn 2017.

Geraghty released the "Join Me in the Pines" album MONOMANIA on 30 August 2019. It was recorded in his studio "The Numbers Station" which saw his friend from school, Mick Major (Bon Ton Rouler) help out in the role of producer.

This reunion of sorts has been on-going and promises more releases from Join Me in the Pines later[when?] in 2020.[citation needed]

Film scores[edit]

David's associated projects have won at The Richard Harris International Film Festival / Still Voices Short Film Festival / Offline Film Festival / IFI Stranger Than Fiction Festival / Dingle International Film Festival.[citation needed]

In 2018, the Screen Composers Guild of Ireland was established, of which Geraghty is a member.
