sense of innovation. No Fixed Abode are an Anglo/Irish song writing
combination comprising of vocalist Una Walsh and Guitarist Tony Dean.
Like the finest single malt wisky, their debut album, Clearwater,
caresses your emotional taste buds, it releases deep aromas of love,
death, and the grind of everyday life. It surprises you with the faint
aromas of joy and just when you think you understand the flavor, along
comes the aftertaste ... anger and want.

them both immensely!" Her deep, expressive voice, strong stage presence,
and melodic style calls your attention, while her lyrics evoke soul-searching
questions that resonate with her listeners' lives today and at times
may bring one to tears. Susan continues to pursue a life filled with

didn't start singing and playing guitar while still in the womb,
they haven't been hailed as the new Dylans and they aren't American
Idol friendly. They're a couple of empty-nester baby-boomer back-porch
songwriters turned street performers turned full-time touring musicians.
They don't chase radio hits, they don't write for others, and they
don't wear fish bowls on their heads. They write songs, they perform
them, they laugh as much as possible. They travel with a small beagle
and a large cappuccino maker.
