 Acts announced for the upcoming June & July shows!

GiftedLive.com are bringing you closer to the bands you love, without you having to leave the comfort of your home. It is a new ‘online music show’ set in a format similar to a TV show which is broadcasted live and direct from stunning venue: The Belfast Empire Music Hall. 

It’s the first music show of its kind – an online show based around a live gig. GiftedLive.com will feature the best new music around – from the established stars to the undiscovered gems – and gift it live to the world!

All GiftedLive.com shows are streamed for Free – Live & Online.  And if you’re worried that you’re missing out on the adrenaline-fuelled impact of a live gig, think about it for a while.

Where you ever at a gig and yet the sound quality wasn’t quite right for you? Did you ever envy those up at the front of stage? Never got into the VIP area you so desperately wanted to be in? That feeling will vanish once you watch your favourite band live – in real time – on your very own front of house seat, from your own home, lap top or mobile device.  GiftedLive.com offers you the chance to share in that live gig experience …but with all the creature comforts of home!

Then again, can always come down to The Belfast Empire Music Hall and witness the magic in person. It is a live gig after all! For those who do however want to attend the gigs in person, tickets are priced at £10 and are available at the door of The Empire Music Hall Belfast from 8:30pm onwards on the night of each show.

TOM McSHANE announces new album “The Ural Winter” OUT: June 22nd

No Comments

TOM McSHANE ‘THE URAL WINTER’  ALBUM OUT: June 22nd  + Launch gig June 22nd Oh Yeah Music Centre, Belfast.

Back in July 2010, Tom McShane and his assembled band congregated in the Oh Yeah! Centre in Belfast to record his debut album within two live sessions held in front of a small audience.

A thought provoking trip across America with his guitar provided the inspiration for the unique and intimate manner in which this album was created. The melancholic and fragile tone to Tom’s voice is particularly felt and portrayed in ‘The Ural Winter’. One which intertwined with the rich trumpet sounds on ‘My Nadir’ elicits an emotional, almost tear-jerking response.

What Tom himself has described as a terrifying experience has certainly merited his leap of faith and the end result is a raw, beautifully personal record which will be forever imprinted on the minds of the audience and listeners alike.

Quote: “Tom’s album is the most genuine record I’ve heard in a very long time – I
was dragged in and left spellbound. Every lyric, every change in tone,
every subtle detail….it all stands out and shine’s through. An album for
the headphones, an album to really cherish. A remarkable collection of
Songs”. (Rigsy, BBC Across The Line)
