Beautifully written with warmth and humour, this is a searingly honest, often harrowing account of a young boy’s struggle to survive orphanage life, and an inspiring testament to the healing power of music and love.

Danny Ellis was a survivor, strong and resilient. A successful singer/songwriter, he grew up in the grinding poverty of the 1950s.

He survived the brutality of the notorious Artane Industrial School where he was left. He'd safely buried his memories, or so he thought.

While writing his acclaimed album, 800 Voices, his past came flooding back to haunt him. Long-forgotten memories of betrayal and abandonment burst forth in a shocking revelation.

Danny began a courageous journey back to the tenement slums of Dublin to his past. What he found with each twist and turn of his odyssey would change his life for ever.
