Welcome to my Website.


Please feel free to read, listen, comment, purchase, and subscribe.

I am a singer/songwriter and poet, doing my best to blend those somewhat different disciplines. 

I try to express the ups and downs of my own emotional and philosophical journey through life, and hope that, in doing so, the end results might speak to/for you also.

Please contact me via the email section below if you wish to be kept informed of developments. Best wishes.   Steve O'Kane 

"Passing Stranger"

A few years ago one of my poems, “Passing Stranger”, was published in a collection: “Poems For Peace”.

The poem was inspired when I saw a young couple and their child playing beside a war memorial, but seemingly not really "seeing" it. I imagined the ghost of one of those named on the stone yearning to speak to them, and what they might say. “Passing Stranger” was the result. I have now released it as the song you can listen to here. If you enjoy listening it would be greatly appreciated if you could give support by way of a donation to download the song for your collection. A % of any profits are to directly help an ex-soldier and family member who’s health is suffering.  The basic download is £2; if anybody is fortunate enough to give a little more there is the option to do so.    Many thanks!  Steve.
