Two singles from the EP: Then She Moves and I Remember Flower Blossom Hill have been played on Radio New York Live and Radio Rock On Los Angeles respectively.

In addition to music, writing is another of Lochlan's outlets. His debut children’s book: The Giant’s Steps, is soon to be available as an ebook.
