Hendrick Lane announce new single “Rollerblade”

Hendrick Lane Release their new single “Rollerblade” On Aug 3rd 2018.

 

Hendrick Lane, a Dublin Duo who sing, rap and love putting on explosive shows have announced their brand new single “Rollerblade” set to be released on Aug 3rd 2018.

Having met in school and gained popularity through schoolyard sing-offs, Hovay and Sevn have decided to follow their passion and have continued making music post-graduation. Hendrick Lane deliver a unique style of confessional storytelling to the music scene combining Hip Hop, Pop and RnB. Citing influences such as Drake, Frank Ocean, PartyNextDoor, Kanye West, Michael Jackson and Andre 3000.

About the song: “Rollerblade” expresses the feeling of emotional nostalgia and transports you into the minds of Hendrick Lane. Like all great pop music of today, the song starts off with the infectious hook performed by Hovay then leading into Sevn’s stand out verse. In this verse, he briefly captures a conversation between him and his childhood crush with his warm vocals and melodic feel. At this point, the feel-good vibe has seamlessly been delivered by a catchy and captivating hard-hitting chorus, which is reminiscent and almost dreamy in a sense.

Though everyone cannot relate to rollerblading when they were young, the track brings the sense of happiness that everyone can relate to, which is the emotion evoked by the Dublin raised boys. Hovay jumps in with his verse, bringing versatility and adding a whole new dimension to the track. He builds on the main mood of the record, looking back at the past and what could have been.

Genres: Hip Hop, RnB, Rap

Location: Dublin, Ireland

Eleanor McEvoy announces new single “Though Humble The Banquet” on July 27th

Eleanor McEvoy announces her new single Though Humble The Banquet  from her album ‘The Thomas Moore Project’,   to released July 27th 2018.

THE THOMAS MOORE PROJECT

Produced and arranged by McEvoy, who is best known for her songs ‘Sophie’ and the Irish standard ‘Only A Woman’s Heart’, The Thomas Moore Project pays more than homage to this most celebrated 18/19th century Irish poet, singer, songwriter and entertainer (a most colourful Georgian character infamous for being a party to the burning of Lord Byron’s memoirs after his death).

Eleanor said, “The Thomas Moore Project is the first significant step in my long journey to discover the wonderful songs and extraordinary life of Thomas Moore. I’m not sure when I began my intriguing quest but I do remember singing Thomas Moore songs in a choir when I was around nine years of age.

“My fascination is not just with his music but also with his own place in history in a fantastic artistic period with contrasting a social and political upheaval in Europe and Ireland. My journey continues. I hope you will enjoy this and join me. My approach is maybe different; I needed to go further than just pay homage, so my arrangements for this choice of eleven songs are, I think, contemporary.” 

Eleanor performs vocals, guitars, strings and keyboards on the album and recruited Damon Butcher from The Beautiful South on keyboards, Eamonn Nolan from The RTE Concert Orchestra on flugelhorn, Eoghan O ‘Neill from Moving Hearts, Chris Rea and Riverdance on bass and Guy Rickerby from Riverdance, Duke Special and The RTE Concert Orchestra on drums and percussion. The musicianship on the album echoes throughout every verse and chorus along with McEvoy’s rich, lilting voice and beautiful playing. 

Now based in Wexford, Dublin-born McEvoy’s career originally started as a session musician, which included a long stint with The Irish National Symphony Orchestra and with The Mary Black Band McEvoy decided to develop her own career, and quickly had the title track on The Woman’s Heart compilation and a U.S. record deal with Geffen Records.

McEvoy was soon touring the world to promote her eponymous debut album for Geffen, which went on to sell 250,000 copies. At the same time, ‘A Woman’s Heart’ entered the Irish charts, selling over 750,000 copies – and remains one of Ireland’s biggest selling albums of all-time. These successes established McEvoy as one of Ireland’s biggest stars, launching a career that has since seen her release twelve studio albums and tour the world. 

Described by BBC Radio 2 as “one of the few artists who can do no wrong whatsoever”, McEvoy has been on the road for two years with her show ‘Naked…Live’ and this year has gone from being a long-time board member of IMRO (Irish Music Rights Organisation) to being its Chairman.

Claire Roche: “From Then To The Here And Now”

Claire Roche

Announces listening sampler ‘Dedication EP’ from album album “From Then To The Here And Now” which is scheduled to be released in Sept 2018.

Gigs: Lexicon library in Dunlaoighre – June 20th at 7pm

The NCH John Field Room, June 26th 8pm

Mountstewart, Northern Ireland, with Yeat’s Women, Oct 6th

We think of a harp and what it sounds like and usually relate to the harp as a solo instrument for playing tunes. Then we think of singers and what they sound like. Let us now merge the two, which is a musical path of uniqueness, passion and intimacy that is present during a performance by Claire.

‘In a world of shattered dreams the artist must celebrate the comely and the beautiful’, whether it is valid at least it’s honest, as Claire writes in a stream of consciousness from the silver trickles of her past and indeed the vast landscape of Irelands mythological tales and historical events and happenings.

Rather than just play tunes, Claire has chosen the harp to be her accompaniment, her choir, her veil to the “otherworld”. Her words, music and passion gently warms the hearts of those present and fires their spirits into passion, courage, tears, love and laughter.

After earning a degree in English and Literature at University College, Dublin and a diploma in Anglo Irish Literature from Trinity College, Dublin Claire advanced her intimate studies into literature through to a Master of Arts Degree. Already a piano player and writer of passionate, intimate and poetic songs, Claire experienced a calling to study playing the harp that she soon used as her accompaniment for sharing her songs.

Claire studied Irish harp again with Mairin Ferritear at Sion Hill Convent, Dublin,Concert harp with Catriona Yeats at the College of Music, Dublin, and Denise Kelly of the Royal Academy of Music in Dublin.

Not only is Claire’s music unique, but it is emotionally moving especially when we are present in her live performance. This new Radio EP encompasses 4 key tracks from her upcoming album “From Then To The Here And Now” which will be released in Sept 2018.

 

Tracklisting:

1) Dedication  

2) Visiting Hour

3) Essence

4) The Longing

Trimming from a trio to a two-piece, Gary and Tom opted for the less is more approach for their 2nd album. The pair have always been the nucleus of the band, and a renewed focus and direction helped the twosome to channel their full attention to crafting the best album possible. The fresh approach certainly worked, and produced once more by Matt Hyde, Hopelessness Of People is a direct, stout statement packed with groove, dynamics and killer hooks. The first single, Not Workinghttps://youtu.be/VejwI2ox_20 , with its powerful riffs and highly engaging songwriting, is a firm indication of what to expect from the new record.

Sean & Conor Price announce brand new Single: “Get Lost” Out June 1st + Irish Tour dates just announced!

 

Sean and Conor Price announce a new energetic and catchy single “Get Lost” to be released June 1st. (Available for pre-release on May 29th on all digital platforms).The video for ‘Get Lost’ will be released mid June. Their last single ‘Be Like You’ shot straight to Number 1 on the iTunes charts! 

Check out the official video here for ‘Be Like You’ which has clocked over 56,000 hits!

Hailing from Co Wicklow, Ireland, Sean (18) & Conor (16) Price began their music career at the early ages of 13 and 11 and soon after with guitar and mic in hand, they started honing in their live performances by busking regularly in Dublin’s infamous Grafton Street. 

Quickly garnering widespread acclaim from their public performances and online music videos and ever growing fanbase, it was in June 2017 when they decided to audition for the X Factor in Edinburgh, Scotland. The busking brothers blew away the judges with their modern rendition of Jimi Hendricks version of “All Along The Watchtower”, complete with a funky rap installation truly making the song their own. After a huge applause, Simon Cowell told the duo: “This is probably one of the best auditions we’ve had. I’m going to say something to you guys – I don’t want to change a single thing from what I saw and heard today.” At Judges Houses in the South of Fance they sang Pink’s “What About Us” and were selected by their mentor Simon Cowell in the Groups category.

They made it to the quarter – final stage before being eliminated, thus finishing in 7th place. They were also part of the 14 Arena X Factor UK & Ireland tour this year. They embark on their own Headline tour called “Be Like You” on June 23rd (Gig listings below).

Citing their early influences as a mixed array of contemporary music, from pop to rap to alternative rock and some folk, they have been inspired by artists such as Eminem, Ed Sheeran, The Script along with Shawn Mendes and Dermot Kennedy. Fellow luminaries, Hudson Taylor also played a big role in influencing and sparking the bands interest in songwriting.

The single, “Be Like You” is out and available for download now and their new single “Get Lost” will be released June 1st. (The single will be available for pre-release on May 29th on all digital platforms).

Note to editors:

This festival is the brainchild of 16yr old Zach Wright. Having met Jim Breen of Cycle Against Suicide a few years ago while he spread the word across Ireland that “its okay not to feel okay”, Zach became inspired to spread the word across his peer group.

As a result of this Zach has climbed some of the highest mountains in the world such as Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Everest in his bid to spread the message that “its okay not to feel okay” raising both charity and awareness to the cause.

Having hit his mid teens and gone past the age for young teen discos etc, he soon discovered that there are no venues for his age group to enjoy music and friendship and certainly none that are drug, smoke and alcohol free. With this in mind and with the help of his Dad Franky, who runs Lilliput Adventure Centre, Zach created SÁSTA! His Climb Against Suicide Charity and SÁSTA FEST teen festival promotes positive mental health for our young people, and aims at helping to make a friendly understandable achievable and caring impact on the teenagers of Ireland.

Bradley Digwell to release new single

“THAT AIN’T BAD” – June29TH 2018

 Bradley Digwell is a Dublin based Irish-American musician known for fusing soul and funk with elements of hip hop.

Born into an artistic family in New York, he lived in South America for 5 years after finishing school and began playing with Bossa Nova and Salsa bands in Brazil and Venezuela. Honing in on his considerably impressive musicianship and live performance skills.

Now living in Dublin, for nearly 10 years, he has refined the songs for his debut album playing the local club circuit. His live shows are hallmarked by high energy and improvisation and the band have garnered accolades for having a number of esteemed players from the European jazz scene.

The first single from the album is titled ‘That Ain’t Bad’ and will be released worldwide across all online digital platforms from June 29th 2018. His debut album which encapsulates a dreamy urban soul funk sound will be released later in the year.
