Albert is responsible for making our own Joe Dolan an international star! He penned Make me an Island, Good Lookin’ Woman and Teresa for Joe. “I loved Joe,” he said, “After I wrote those songs for him, I moved to California. Joe was looking for more material to record. But nobody told me. That was a big regret of mine. Joe was an amazing talent and a wonderful person”
Albert has been writing hit songs for over fifty years. There has not been a single decade in which he has not written multiple hits songs since he scored his first hit with Little Arrows at the age of 24. That song was a Number One in the Irish Charts for The Dixies Showband and the Spanish version went on to top the charts in many Latin American Countries, for Leapy Lee and other artists.
His songs have been responsible for over 50 chart-topping hits.
He has been inducted into The Songwriters “Hall of Fame” and has been awarded an OBE by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth.
The man is simply a living legend. Don’t miss him in concert!
