Adela & the Meanits 

Album ‘Kinda Wild’ Out Oct 14th + Set to perform at giftedlive.com on Oct 4th Online Global gig. Taking place in Belfast Empire Music Hall.

After finishing up a momentous tour in August, Adela & the Meanits announce the release of their most eagerly awaited album ‘KINDA WILD’ (Oct 14th). Their tour dubbed ‘The Long Road Home Tour’ seen the band, in the space of 28 days, complete a 5000km tour that covered all 32 counties in Ireland with only 2 days off!

The band were amazed at the reception they received in diverse venues such as pubs, arts theatres, heritage/shopping centres, national and local festivals and even a church! They have fast become one of the most surprising live acts to grasp the attention of audiences in every nook and cranny of this island.  “If it has been undertaken before by an Irish band then it has been lost in the mists of time” (Irish Times).

The band formed after a chance encounter on a St Patrick’s Day float in Portlaoise, where Adela met drummer Ros O’ Meara. Ros introduced Adela to Barry Hayes who in turn introduced everyone to John Davidson. Like peas in a far out pod… catapulted from years of abject obscurity in the Irish midlands… they soon became a group of four: Adela and the Meanits.


Their music has been likened to Madness, Sultans of Ping and Lily Allen, but comparisons aside their music contains refreshing elements of pop, folk & trash can jazz that when combined, somehow manage to have a mainstream appeal. With songs that are catchy as f*ck and musicianship that is so roasting hot it is hard to imagine this band staying under the radar for much longer. All four musicians are multi-instrumentalists and incorporate vocals, double bass, piano, ukulele, melodica, drums/percussion, nylon string guitar and violin with effects pedals into each live performance.
