I Went Outside for a Cigarette

by Seamus Anthony

An open-ended tale in a "Bar Romantic" style that hints of, yes, love but also of the life changing consequences that sometimes result from small, barely considered actions and, perhaps, of meeting, one frosty eve, the ultimate stranger - you.

Album Notes
I make music in what I call the Bar Romantic genre. It is similar to Tom Waits, Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen and Johhny Cash - but more Australian.

I have been writing and singing songs since I was 13 and this year, 2012, marks 20 years of gigging & recording, to greater and lesser levels of commitment. Waning commitment is not an issue anymore: back in 2007, after many music career misses (one near and multiple far), I had all but given up on the rock n' roll dream, and was glumly substituting it with the bottle. But then I held my baby girl for the first time and, as I stood there in the hospital, God quietly spoke to me (no joke) asking me if that was what I was going to teach her - to give up on who you are.

Quite glad to say, I resolved "no" and have never looked back. (Well, I glanced briefly over my shoulder once when I ran over a cat ... but I'm pretty sure he was fine.)

I hope you enjoy my tunes. They are entertainment pieces but they also aim to inspire. We will all be dead soon - meantime we must learn to live, I hope my songs help you with this.
