Mark Feehily’s secret Thriller

By Mark Kavanagh (

Mark Feehily

Westlife star Mark Feehily has secretly been recording his first solo album in the Irish music studios used by Michael Jackson before his death.

Mark (32) has been quietly recording in Grouse Lodge Studios in Co Westmeath—used by the Thriller singer in 2006.

He and Shane Filan (33) are the only two members of Westlife going solo, and while Shane works on a record deal in London, Mark has been enjoying the solitude of Grouse Lodge.

Mark has revealed he’s determined not to fade into obscurity: “I didn’t want Westlife to end so I could make a solo record, but it’s something I will do now,” he said.

“In order to be happy in life I’m going to have to create.”

And he insists there’s no way of predicting who will be the big solo star from Westlife.

He said: “It’s only when we make music that it will be more apparent.”
