Leixlip, County Kildare, Ireland

Geraghty gained experience from a number of bands in his home town of Leixlip, went on to learn how to play instruments such as drums, guitar, banjo, harmonica, and piano, and to begin honing the art of recording. He later[when?] became a member of the group Juniper along with Paul Noonan, Damien Rice, Dominic Phillips and Brian Crosby. Damien Rice left Juniper in 1998 to pursue a solo career, and the remaining members reformed as Bell X1, named after the Bell X-1.
Geraghty released his debut solo album Kill Your Darlings on 7 September 2007, while still a member of Bell X1. His debut earned him a nomination for the Choice Music Prize and two Meteor award nominations (Best Album and Best Male).
On 28 August 2009, Geraghty released his second solo album The Victory Dance. The release of the album coincided with a nationwide tour which began with a live performance at Electric Picnic in Stradbally, Co. Laois. The tour also consisted of dates in Cork, Galway, Limerick, Louth and Dublin.
Geraghty and the other members of Bell X1 have achieved major success in their native Ireland and in other European countries. Due to extensive touring, the band has become increasingly popular in North America. Chop Chop was released on 28 June 2013 in Ireland, an album that sees Geraghty back behind the drum kit. The track 'Diorama' on which Geraghty sings lead vocal, was used as part of the film soundtrack to There's Always Woodstock.
In 2014, Geraghty released his third solo album INHERIT, under the moniker "Join Me in the Pines".
He recently[timeframe?] returned to his hometown of Leixlip to perform a song from INHERIT as part of the TV series Jingle Jangle, which was aired on Irish television in autumn 2017.
Geraghty released the "Join Me in the Pines" album MONOMANIA on 30 August 2019. It was recorded in his studio "The Numbers Station" which saw Bon Ton Rouler's Mick Major help out in the role of producer.
