Album + Single Out Now! “Birds For The Bayou”

Remit: AC – Adult contemporary/ mainstream

Sydney based Josh Orange is one of the most refreshing contemporary alt folk-rock bands in Australia. The band recently released the greatly anticipated fifth studio album Birds For The Bayou, a career-defining work that consolidates years of recording and touring. 

With four AMRAP number #1 singles since the release of their fourth studio album Midnight Lights in 2021, I Will Follow You, Little Miss America, I Feel Love, and Midnight Lights, as well as their latest single, Birds For The Bayou (radio edit) now in its fourth week in AMRAP top 10 singles chart. The new collection of songs reflects the band’s dynamic energy and ability to generate emotionally charged musical landscapes. 

With their latest single, Josh Orange has validated their position as one of Australia’s most exciting indie-rock bands and musical exports. Combining accessible intimacy with rousing universality, Josh Orange breaks the bounds of genre to produce a rich and galvanising musical style.

JOSH ORANGE ‘Birds For the Bayou’ June 28 2024

Josh Orange formed in Sydney’s Inner West Suburb of Glebe in 2004. Founding members Andrew Wass and Gordon Burke remain at the core of the band 20 years on. Burke, originally from Drimnagh in Dublin Ireland, moved to Sydney in 1997. Gordon is the son of Royal Showband Guitarist Fergus Burke, and grew up surrounded by musicians. Gordon found success in Dublin in the early 90’s with Bands Both Ends Burning and his owned band Suddenly Smith, who recorded the top 30 hit Breakthru with Pete Holidai and a young Gavin Glass joined shortly after on lead guitar.

Josh Orange released their first album in 2006, and almost 20 years later the band released their fifth studio album “Birds For The Bayou” on June 28 2024. Their sound has developed over time, with the core of the band still together after 20 years. Winners of the SAW Mid Atlantic Songwriting Competition, Washington DC 2022, with their Americana styled song “I Will Follow You”. The band have chalked up four Australian AMRAP Metro No.1 Singles since 2020, and reached their first million streams on Spotify in 2024. The band are excited to be releasing a new album, and to continue their journey together as a decent bunch of Aussie Battlers.

The album “Birds For The Bayou” was probably the most stop/start album the band have made to date. Frontman Gordon Burke describes the experience as exhausting and oftentimes overwhelming…..

“We were trying to find the sound more than anything, we didn’t want to repeat the sound of Midnight Lights, and we had numerous recording sessions that we simply binned. After we released “The Last Time” in early 2023, and a sold out Sydney show, we decided to go back to the basics. 

We finally found some momentum after much trial and error in late 2023, and we finally finished recording eleven new tracks in April 2024. The band will celebrate 20 years of making music together in 2024, and we are really proud to mark that with a fifth studio album”.

Eleanor McEvoy ‘SOUTH ANNE STREET’ (The Christmas Mix) 

Via Blue Dandelion Music is Out Tues 21st Nov

+ Launch of the single on Tuesday 21st Nov 2.30pm, upstairs room in McDaids,  3 Harry St, Dublin, D02 NC42, Ireland.

Get ready for a festive treat this holiday season with South Anne Street – the Christmas Mix! Grammy award winning sound engineer Ciaran Byrne, known for his work with musical legends like U2, Ed Sheeran and The Pogues, has sprinkled his magic on Eleanor McEvoy’s enchanting song. Mark your calendars for the release on Tuesday 21st November

“South Anne Street” was originally featured on McEvoy’s critically acclaimed album “GIMME SOME WINE” which was recorded during lockdown. (Giving some clue, perhaps, as to why the album was entitled “GIMME SOME WINE”).

The song  captures the essence of a chance encounter with a former flame on a Tuesday afternoon before Christmas. Awkward conversations transform into warm moments at McDaid’s pub on Harry Street – a stone’s throw from the iconic corner of South Anne Street and Grafton Street in Dublin.

Steeped in the ambience of ‘the corner of South Anne and Grafton Street’ this Christmas Mix by Ciaran Byrne brings out the yuletide atmosphere of the lyrics.  It is the only single in the world to feature the bell of the Luas, a sound that is unique to Dublin city! As the track gently fades away, the bells of Saint Patrick’s Cathedral resonate across the city.

“South Anne Street” is both absolutely specific and utterly universal. “At the end of the day, there’s nothing quite like a quiet pint in a Dublin pub in the company of an old friend..” Experience the magic of Christmas with Eleanor McEvoy’s SOUTH ANNE STREET – The Christmas Mix and let the spirit of the season wash over you.


Damon Butcher (Everything But the Girl, The Beautiful South)  – Fender Rhodes

Liam Bradley (Van Morrison,  Moving Hearts) – Drums

Keith Duffy (The Corrs, The Commitments) – Bass

Alexander Koryukovec – Accordion

Eamon Nolan (RTE CO, BBC Symphony Scottish National Jazz Orch) -Flugelhorn

Interesting notes of interest for editors/researchers:


College Park is a cricket ground in the grounds of Trinity College Dublin in Ireland and is the home ground of Dublin University Cricket Club.  The ground made history in 2000 by playing host to Ireland women’s first Women’s Test match against Pakistan women, which Ireland women won by an innings and 54 runs.


The pub was once the Dublin City Morgue and was later converted into a chapel for the Moravian Brethren, hence the high ceilings and the Gothic style windows. McDaid’s has been identified by Joycean scholars as the setting for the opening of his story, Grace. one time haunt of the nation’s literary giants of the 20th century: Patrick Kavanagh, Flann O’Brien, J.P. Donleavy, Liam O’Flaherty, Paddy Kavanagh and Brendan Behan.


Really interesting history – one of the oldest shopping streets in Dublin


Flower sellers on the streets of Dublin have been part of the theatre of the city since Viking times. Fast forward to nineteenth century Dublin when Grafton Street and Henry Street became the shopping destinations of the city.

Eleanor McEvoy is one of Ireland’s foremost songwriters. She is the composer, producer and co-performer of “A Woman’s Heart”, the title track for the best-selling Irish album in Irish history.  In May 2019 it was voted by the Irish public as being in the TOP 10 of Ireland’s Favourite Folk Songs. It features regularly on screen, most recently in 2019 in the award-winning TV show “Derry Girls”.

Eleanor began her career as a session musician in Dublin, where she lent her talents to numerous recording artists including U2, Sinead O’Connor, The Pale, Mary Black, Phil Coulter and Liam Clancy. She also spent five years as a violinist with the National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland, but her true passion was song writing.

Her eponymous debut album, released under Geffen Records in LA was followed by tours across the USA, Europe and Asia. Subsequently, Eleanor transitioned to Columbia Records in New York for her second album “What’s Following Me?” From that point onward, Eleanor McEvoy established herself as a globally recognized artist and performer. Her extensive discography comprising seventeen albums, has been consistently praised by critics and fans alike.

Her song “Sophie” was aptly described by David Smith in The Guardian as “an anthem that is touching, inspiring and consoling thousands of anorexic girls around the world” It is employed internationally in treatment centres to aid patients with eating disorders.

In May 2022, McEvoy mesmerized audiences with sold-out concerts at the National Concert Hall and National Opera House where she performed with the RTE Concert Orchestra alongside Wallis Bird and Maura O’Connell for “A Woman’s Heart Orchestrated”.

Her latest album “Gimme Some Wine” recorded during lockdown, features the singles “Scarlet Angels”“Almost Beautiful” (a co-write with The Beautiful South’s Dave Rotheray) and “South Anne Street”.  Since its release Eleanor has been touring extensively, both at home and internationally in support of the album. Throughout 2024 she will continue to tour with dates across Australia, Ireland, Germany and UK throughout the year.

Outside of her touring and recording commitments, McEvoy serves as the Chairperson of the board of IMRO, she recently held a position as a board member of the National Concert Hall, and is a voting member of The American Academy (The Grammy Awards). In October 2020 Minister Catherine Martin appointed her to the Task Force for the Recovery of the Arts.

Marty Rafo To Release New Single ‘Our Last Goodbye’

No Comments

Northern Irish artist Marty Rafo has been stirring up quite a bit of interest in the music industry since the release of his first two EP’s “Last Brigade” and “Atlantic Crossing.” From licensing music to 20+ major television networks, indie films, and sports arenas (including FOX, ESPN, E!, Discovery, National Geographic, NFL, and NASCAR), to celebrating rotation on 200+ college, independent, and commercial radio stations and performing alongside some of the US and UK’s most sought-after headliners (including: “Icon for Hire”, “All That Remains”, “Feeder”, “Reef”, “Pigeon Detectives” and “The Sherlocks”) – Rafo has just announced his collaboration with Irish Italian DJ and Producer Coke Beats on New Single ‘Our Last Goodbye’.

From busking in the streets of New York City in the late ‘90s to touring on three continents and leaving his mark on the underground electronic music scenes, Coke Beats has featured in more than 1 billion views on TikTok, and 44 number 1’s on the iTunes Charts in Europe, Asia, and South America. He is back in Ireland after a stint of EU residencies and has just worked on this remix collab with Marty Rafo, who was in search of the same quality of track as the late Avicii‘s ‘Hey Brother’ on his new single. Calling on the finesse of the Producer.

In addition to being featured in 50+ media publications for his past college, club, and festival tours (including: “Rock the Fort Music Festival, USA”, “Camden Rocks Festival”, “TVW Stock Festival, UK” and “Lee Stock Music Festival, UK”), some of the highlights thus far, according to Marty, have been hanging out with Bono and The Edge, meeting Jimmy Page and meeting the man who inspired him to pick up a guitar, Mr. Noel Gallagher.

Commenting on the inspiration behind his latest single, Rafo commented:

“Our Last Goodbye” is about two people who are in love with one another, then eventually break up and move their separate ways. It’s about reminiscing about the good times and wondering where it all went wrong. In the song, the main character in this narrative is still interested in what she is doing. However, he discovered that she was with another guy in a different country. He realises he needs to move on and stop living in the past. Ultimately, he finds himself and finds self-love.

His last single “You’ll Never Be Alone” soared straight to No.1 in both the UK and Irish I-Tunes charts. The new single ‘Our Last Goodbye’ – (Coke Beats Remix) is set to do the same and will be released on Sept 29th.  With a full band remix and an acoustic remix to follow in Oct.

14500646_10154557786518518_3018977654998123507_o‘Hospital” – The brand new track from ‘Heroes In Hiding’ will be performed by the band on Fri.

In a star studded line up that includes Hollywood actors Alexander Skarsgård, Michael Peña and former Ireland international Jason McAteer. Be sure to tune in from 9.35pm on RTE 1 or the RTE Player.

In the last month the bands single ‘Hospital’, detailing an incident where one of the lead vocalist’s from the band, Joe Carroll, fell out of a moving bus on the dual carriage way and woke up in a hospital bed, has been critically acclaimed by Irish media such as Hotpress, The Star, The Irish Times and well known Irish and International Music Blogs and Webzines who lauded the band as one of the most promising acts to come out of Ireland this year.

There’s some thump off it! The Breakfast Show ‘Song of the Week'” – Ian Dempsey Today FM

“Ireland’s next indie hit makers” – RTE Radio 1

“Band of the week for this sprightly indie-pop song” – The Irish Times

“Excellent! Another great track from HIH, did you expect anything less!”- RTE 2FM – ‘Song of the week’

 “Fantastic Four-Piece” – Joe.ie ‘Song of the day’

“Heroes in Hiding have a momentum that is in full swing” The Star ‘Single of the day’

“Fantastic track!” BBC INTRODUCING 

“Hospital is engrossing whilst also keeping the hooks and melodic lushness in tact.”- TheLastMixTape

Since the release of debut EP “Hush” in 2014, Heroes In Hiding have gathered a momentum that is now in full pendulum swing. The burgeoning band are center stage in Ireland as one of the most promising talked about acts on the scene. Having performed at festivals such as Electric Picnic, Forbidden Fruit, Castlepalooza, BD Festival, Life Festival, even securing a slot at Iceland’s Secret Solstice festival – the band are now ready to release their first LP titled ‘CURTAINS’ which is due for an autumn release date of Oct 7th 2016.

‘Hospital’, documents a recent close encounter with death by a member of the band Joe Carroll: “I was on my way home from a friend’s birthday party on a hired coach. There weren’t enough seats so I was standing up at the back. I leaned back and fell out of the door and onto the motorway. I don’t remember much of the incident itself and the next thing I remember was lying on a trolley in the hospital in a neck brace. Luckily I didn’t sustain any lasting injuries but I was fully aware of how close I came to being much worse off. On my second day in hospital I heard a nurse using some sort of machine behind the curtain on the patient next to me. It was bleeping with two harmonious tones. Something told me I had to make a song out of it so I recorded it on my phone (which had miraculously survived the fall). A few days later when I was at home and feeling a little better I put the recording onto my laptop and recorded a rough draft of the song “Hospital”. The song is a document of my experience that night, and my realisation that life is very fragile and something to be cherished.”

HEROES IN HIDING ARE: Joe Carroll – Vox and Acoustic Guitar, Liam McCabe – Vox, Bass, Violin, Sax, electronics, Oisin Jacob – Vox, Electric Guitar and Kalimba and Cian Donohoe – Drums & Percussion.

Heroes In Hiding announce FundIt Campaign for new visual & auditory gig experience.

No Comments

HEROES IN HIDING launch a FundIt campaign to bring you a unique visual and auditory experience at their next gig, but they need YOU to make it happen. Read the below information from the band to find out more!

press-4The Idea

This year our aim is to create a show that is entirely unique to the Irish music scene from which to launch our upcoming record.

Entitled Curtains, the project is a live physical and visual representation of a collection of songs. We invite you to experience a space where the boundary between the eye and the ear becomes blurred, and the barrier between the band and the audience becomes skewed.

Four walls line the edge of a square: you are invited to enter. Images are projected on all four sides. Your eyes turn to follow, your ears always alert.

We will toy with your senses and pick at your emotions so that you leave with something more than just a ticket stub. For as long as we have been together on stage it has always been us telling you the story. This time around we want you to be a part of the story.

The Band

Heroes in Hiding are made up of Joe Carroll, Oisín Jacob & Liam McCabe.

To You and The Crew

We have been together as a group since 2005. Since then, we genuinely couldn’t have made it to where we are without your support. Our success thus far is a direct result of your commitment.

We have had the opportunity to play on some of the biggest stages in both Ireland and abroad, we’ve worked with an endless amount of amazingly talented musicians, producers, sound engineers, light engineers, stage crew, promoters etc. and have never taken a single moment for granted.

This project will give us yet another chance to work with a great bunch of people. We have a dedicated crew and have joined with Second Frame Films, who will be curating the visuals for the show.

Why a Fund it?

Curtains is an experience. An experience that we would like to share with you at a specific time in a specific place. On this occassion however, we require some financial assistance to create a project of this scale.


TOOTAWL “HOUSE ON THE MOON” The brand new EP Out November 27th

TOOTAWL “HOUSE ON THE MOON” The brand new EP Out November 27th

First, let us rewind a little back to last summer 2014… When a young Irish troubadour named Richard O’ Gorman, with guitar in hand, found himself in the epicenter of Nashville, Tennessee playing gigs alongside fellow luminaries in the pubs, pavements and clubs, honing in on his crafty songwriting and performing his bustling brand of nu-folk in such famous venues as The Bluebird.

Standing at six foot four, he was christened ‘too tawl’ in typical Tennessee twang and fashion by a passing hobo on the street. The namesake stuck like glue and upon his arrival home triumphantly with this new adapted title he began working on material for his debut EP. Mainly taking inspiration from artists like Bob Dylan, The Beatles and also older blues musicians such as Blind Willie McTell, Tootawl mixes this strong sense of musical tradition with his own unique style.

tootawlEPcover Since his time in Tennessee, Tootawl has been paying his dues around the gigging circuit in Ireland including special guest support slot performances to Aslan in their sold out gig in Cork Opera House and Ham Sandwich at the Bandon Music Festival, to name but a few.

TooTawl recorded, engineered and mixed his debut EP with producer Christian Best (Mick Flannery, O Emperor) at Monique Studios. It has a release date of Friday 27th of November with tour dates to follow nationally.

Announcing “Don’t Be Afraid” (Of the Light that shines within you) A compilation album in aid of Samaritans  Release Date: Oct 9th

People who are going through difficult times will often want to share their problems with family or friends, but sometimes, for a number of reasons, it can be hard to talk to those who are closest.

This CD, features 16 songs from some of Irelands most beloved artists and bands: Hozier, Hothouse Flowers, Imelda May, The Coronas,  Mary Black, Luka Bloom, Maura O’Connell, Eleanor Shanley, Paddy Casey, Kieran Quinn, Roisin O, Brian Kennedy, Ailie Blunnie, Dawn Kenny, Tommy Flemming & Brian Leyden. The songs deliver a powerful message of hope. The CD is dedicated to any of us who may find support in calling Samaritans and imparts the message that within the 21 branches on the island of Ireland, with 2,000 volunteers, Samaritans are there to listen.

Like the artists and bands that have dedicated their songs to this CD, Samaritans volunteers are ordinary people who do extraordinary things, and their service is available around the clock every single day of the year. Calls are confidential and those who contact them can be themselves – Samaritans do not judge.

The CD will be readily available to purchase on iTunes and all good digital sites from Oct 9th as well as in select stores Nationwide. All proceeds from the sale of the cd will go towards Samaritans. For all updates and info, please check out the websitehttp://dontbeafraidcd.com

Editors note:

Samaritans was established in Ireland in 1962 and there are now 21 branches on the island of Ireland with over 2,000 volunteers. Samaritans does a great deal to help people struggling to cope, both in terms of answering calls, face to face support, emails and texts as well as outreach work in prisons, schools, music festivals and many other places.  The work they do can best be summed up in one phrase – “We help people to see all the options available to them”. In some cases this can quite literally be a lifesaver.

Last year, Samaritans answered over 470,000 calls for help for people who contacted them by telephone, email, text or by visiting their local branch.

People called to talk about many issues: money worries, family and relationship problems; depression and mental health issues; loneliness and stress and anxiety. With many of these issues, having the opportunity to talk them through with a trained listener can offer huge relief. Where Samaritans feels a person could benefit from a different kind of support, they may sometimes sign-post them to alternative services.

Quote from An Taoiseach Enda Kenny – “For many of us, music can be our refuge: it takes us to a place of hope and comfort. There’s therefore a rightness and resonance to this CD which showcases some of Ireland’s best-loved musicians in aid of one of its best-loved charities, Samaritans”

The band also received the endorsement of numerous music industry heavyweights such as John Hartmann (ex-manager of The Eagles and Sonny and Cher).

red empireThe forthcoming album, which is set for a late 2015 release date, has captured the band’s trademark well-crafted melodic sound, ‘The Chosen Few’ is the current single and is a testament to the bands trademark sound of melodic pop rock.

Throughout 2014 the band, who hail from all over Dublin, continued to play their increasingly well-known high-intensity live gigs all around Ireland and have gone down a treat at festivals such as The Westport Festival of Music and Arts, Fortstock and The Coors Light Weekender in Cork. Indieweek.com described seeing the band play live as a “kick-ass, very energetic live show.”

With an ever-growing fan base and a bourgeoning roster of gigs throughout Ireland in 2015, Red Empire look set for bigger and better things. Having already played in venues like the Olympia Theatre, Vicar St and the INEC in Kerry amongst many others right throughout the country the band have proven their worth on the big stage. And with the band touted as “serious contenders for some well-deserved attention” and “destined for a bigger and brighter future”, many commentators have noted that the Red Empire journey is only beginning.
