Flogging Molly: For Dave King, the Dublin-born singer/guitarist/songwriter of SideOneDummy recording group Flogging Molly, the band's third studio album, Within a Mile of Home, brings him back to his childhood and the traditional Irish music he grew up with. With the help of his Flogging Molly compatriots and producer Ted Hutt, Within a Mile of Home has finally taken King full circle, back to his roots, and oh what a journey it has been.

King began his musical career as a member of Fastway, teaming up with Motorhead guitarist Eddie Clarke in the late '80s, having played New York's Madison Square Garden and L.A.'s Great Western Forum, only to eventually find himself scrubbing the toilets of ghetto clubs where he performed with just an acoustic guitar. For the musician, who originally came to L.A. from London in 1989 at the invitation of legendary Geffen A and R exec John David Kalodner to be in a band called Katmandu, it wasn't until forming Flogging Molly that he began to write and play "for myself and no one else." These days, he insists, he is right where he wants to be.
