From rhythmic cuts that will get your toes tapping (Rosemary Bailey) to John's engaging vocal nuances on stellar ballads (Ringsend Rose, Old Man), and boosted by several pre-eminent Irish musicians to include: band member Mick Redmond (well crafted mandolin and banjo influences throughout), accordion and whistle accompaniments by Brian Doyle, driving bodhran beats from Peter Walker (check out Maggie), world champion Irish piper Larry Cullen, and the talented tin whistler Tommy Breen (of Boru and Fenian Folk) contributing a fine solo instrumental (The Bog Down In The Valley O'), this album delivers magical vocal and musical performances.

The title track "Old Men In Hats" (an incredible lyrical contribution from fellow Wicklow man Terry Kavanagh) truly puts you there, in that place that as the song says: "feels like heaven to me."

John Breen has performed with his own band, to sharing the stage with Boru, The Dublin Rogues, The Dublin City Ramblers, and Liam O' Faoilin to name a few. Often compared to Ronnie Drew, John Breen is the "Irish Voice." To read more about John Breen, Click Here.

The John Breen album combines the best of traditional Irish music with unique contemorary interpretations of the same by the world influenced "Mad Hatter's Celtic Orchestra." The songs reflect both the ballads that John Breen is best known for along with the kind of rollicking good fun associated with Ireland's foot tapping Celtic beats.

Signed to Atlanta Music Group's label division Alternative Urban Records in Jan. 2004, John Breen's album was recorded at AMG with veteran producer Steven Hawkins at the helm.

The John Breen album is a concept album delivering a fresh perspective of songs with roots rich in tradition yet broadened by music schooled in dynamics and foundation, intelligently embracing the sounds of ancient Celtic times and interweaving it with the Ireland of today. This is an album of Celtic passion delivered in John Breen's compelling vocal styling that truly instills a desire to listen to it one more time.

With original songs included, proving John's capacity for writing as well as his singing, this debut album is truly a first in what we are certain will be many future albums throughout John Breen's steady flourishing career.
