Forever friends

IT’S been nearly 40 years since two creative minds intertwined. Their love of music and fervour for song-writing resulted in an instant connection and a bond that has seen them follow sometimes different paths but always travelling a similar road.

Padraig Stevens and Leo Moran met during the formation and early rehearsals of a new Tuam band called Blaze X. Leo recalls their first encounter effortlessly and instantly. “It was 1979 and Padraig was working with Blaze X and I was helping out. It was an extremely exciting time.”
