William D.

The first " why can't man be more like animals" was released in 2011 and the second "The sky on my Birthday" in (2018).[3]

William was raised in County Cork, Ireland, and served as primary songwriter and bass player in Rubyhorse from 1988–2005, moving with the band to the US in 1997.[4] The band had several major record deals with Interscope and Island records and appeared on the David Letterman show, Conan o Brian and had a Billboard top 20 hit with the song Sparkle.[5] When the band took a hiatus following the release of Goodbye to All That in 2005,[6] he settled in Boston with his young family, before moving back to Ireland in 2015. He now spends the majority of his time at his studio "Milk Row Cemetery" writing music for documentaries and film. Ruby horse are also back in the studio recording new material.
