Later, as a newspaper journalist, he reported on local topics including the criminal courts and social issues. MacWatt has been releasing music since late 2018 with four albums and three EPs to date. He performs mainly on the London Folk and Americana circuit as a solo artist and with his band The Glass Mountains. He plays guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, dobro and bodhran.
