“You can’t but hear Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen influences, but this is a fine true folk troubadour” – NEWS OF THE WORLD
“The announcement of this release date is great news for true music lovers – NOBODY KNOWS is simply a pleasure to listen to with it’s perfectly eclectic blend of influences”- Patrick James (Blog)
After a windfall of press and radio support over the last few months after his single release –DIAMOND- which lead to sold out shows in Dublin.The Irish Independent & HOTPRESS gave him their seal of approval stating that “Ireland has a new singer songwriter to be reckoned with!”, while MIXTAPE/ 2UIBESTOW awarded ELDER ROCHE as their RUBY TUESDAY ARTIST “Elder Roche has shown massive potential with his debut album ‘Nobody Knows’. Dan Hegarty of RTE 2FM claims that there is “something spiritual about ELDER’s songs”, andPHANTOM FM describes him as “truly talented and stunning”. Radio stations nationwide (BEAT FM, WLRFM, KFM, KCLRFM, CLARE FM, WIRED FM, FEILE FM, MIDLANDS RADIO + more) have been adding ELDER ROCHE to their programmes play lists, echoing a great year to come from this musical dramatist who is now ready to be recognised and embraced for his musical ability.
‘It is said that those born under the Elder sign are able to live and prosper under any conditions’.
Experimenting with music from the early age of eleven, this Dublin based musical poet has shared the stage with many of Ireland’s well known’s over the years- Paddy Casey, Damien Rice, Juno Falls, Juliet Turner and Damian Dempsey. He is no stranger to the press or radio as the past few years have seen ELDER grow and establish himself as an entertaining and riveting performer- not to mention a solemn musician who remains true to the very elements that preserves the original with the new. He has played in venues across the world (America and Europe) and indeed in Ireland.
Embracing the grittier side of life and paving the way with slapping grooves and roots overtones. ELDER’s theatrical story telling has likened him to Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave and David Bowie. (Who can argue with them comparisons). His fantastic eagerly awaited studio album NOBODY KNOWS contains catchy progressions and is every bit the way to go in etching his own space within the songs that fuse the current music scene both in Ireland and further afield.
