'Tender Mercies' featuring the legendary B.J. Cole on pedal steel, alongside John Bentley from "Squeeze", and top session players Bob Loveday and Luce Langridge.

Errol also worked occasionally with London's 'Balham Alligators' and the 'Tex Pistols'

Errol is currently back home in Ireland and working with Ted Ponsonby: a songwriter, producer and engineer from Letterkenny in Donegal who also plays acoustic and electric guitars, dobro and Hammond organ.

He is a noted session musician in Ireland having worked with Maura O Connell, Dolores Keane, Freddie White, The Henry Girls, Sean Keane, Andy White, Arty Mc Glynn, and many other notable Irish musicians... including a short stint with Van Morrison

Ted's inimitable skills on dobro and guitar are the perfect foil for Errol's lived-in voice and care-worn tales of life, love and luck.

Their new joint project… "Just sayin'…" is a fairly eclectic roots album covering a fluid and interesting collection of evocative and often introspective songs in which Errol explores many of the genres that have influenced him during his career.
