Gig in The Village, Wexford St. 19th October 2013
“One of the tightest live bands on the circuit today” – Irish Daily Star
The Barley Mob, a six piece group of talented and lively musicians, release their much awaited self-titled debut album on 25th October. The album features 11 tracks produced by renowned producer Steven Shannon who helped the band translate their energetic and electric live performances into an accomplished studio album.
The Barley Mob’s music does not fall neatly into any one genre. Their debut album delivers a fresh blend of uplifting music embellished with infectious beats, folk jigs, soulful melodies and rock riffs. Its varied range and mix harvests the mood of the country from despair and discontent to a simmering sense of revolt imbued with resilience and hope for a better future.
With over 350 shows to their credit since forming in 2010, the band have been widely acclaimed for their live performances. Over the last three years they have built a large and growing fan base from playing in the smallest venues to the largest festivals including Electric Picnic, Knockanstockan, Sligo Live, Dublin City Soul Festival and Boomtown Fair(UK) as well as performances on RTE Radio 1, FM104 and Phantom 105.2.
Their repertoire resonated with crowds that did not take to the streets but instead danced and sang to songs such as “Everybody’s Music”, “Stand Up, Rise Up, Big Up” and “You’ll Never Be Lost When You’ve Got Music”.
The Barley Mob are: Adam Daly, Neil Butler, Andrew Moore, John Heraghty, Sean Behan and Conor Byrne.
