    Ten years ago the singer-songwriter’s debut ‘Little Dreamer’ went top 10, garnered a Brit nomination and sales in excess of 100,000. A huge achievement by anyone’s standards but a tainted one for Rowley – she felt compromised both musically and stylistically, modeled in the labels image as a mainstream contender.

    This bitter-sweet experience played a significant part in why it’s taken a decade for this talented musician to deliver her second long player. Now, with taster track ‘Forest Fire’ – co-written with Ron Sexsmith – putting her back on the radar and picking up daytime play at 6music, Beth Rowley is ready to step back into the spotlight.

    “I had some awesome experiences being on a major label” says Rowley, “the opportunities you get given are incredible. I don’t want to say it was all bad, but it wasn’t the right home for me, so it was best to part ways.”

    “Ten years is a long time,” she acknowledges, but the resultant album ‘Gota Fría’ is a total vindication, a rawer, heavier, gutsier and more truthful mirror of her sublime talent, unshackled by her debut’s jazz-pop leanings and polished production.

    A Spanish weather term ‘Gota Fría’ struck Rowley as the perfect album title. It describes “long periods of the clouds breaking off and remaining stationary for weeks and then sudden violent clashes of warm and cold currents. I thought it was a beautiful name, and an awesome album title, because the meaning is so bold and a perfect image of my own journey.”

    A heady fusion of rock, blues and Americana ‘Gota Fría’ is a startling rebirth, with a confidence that belies that ten-year absence. Working with co-writers Ron Sexsmith, Marcus Bonfanti and Ben Castle, Rowley has delivered an album that smolders, in both explosive and intimate forms. ‘Howl at the Moon’ and ‘Only One Cloud’, evoke the swarthy drama of Led Zeppelin while ‘Brother’ and ‘Run to the Light’ are ember-glowing ballads. ‘Hide from Your Love’ and ‘Forest Fire’ splice country-folk roots with the vibe and energy of the Bristol scene that gave birth to her voice while ‘Get it Back’ is equal parts rock and soul and ‘Brave Face’ nods to the ‘70s west coast sound.

    Whilst ‘Gota Fría’ is her first full length player, Rowley has kept her musical hand in recording two film related collaborations working on the title song ‘Careless Talk’ with the venerated Angelo Badalamenti for Dylan Thomas bio-pic ‘The Edge Of Love’ and co-writing ‘You’ve Got Me Wrapped Around Your Little Finger’ with Ben Castle for ‘An Education’.

    Beth also began her work with a small human rights projects in the charity sector that have taken her and her music to the Middle East for the last six years. “People always ask, ‘What are you doing next?’, and think you should always be creating,” she muses. “But creativity is a real up-and-down process for most people, which isn’t celebrated and or encouraged enough. You need to take time to stop and make sure your purpose is still real.”

    Beth hits the road with a two-piece band for a run of dates coinciding with the album release. Beth will play Upstairs at Whelans, 25th June. Tickets on sale on Friday April 20th from Ticketmaster.ie and outlets Nationwide.

    Following a string of sold-out shows, Kate Voegele & Tyler Hilton have announced their return to Dublin as they hit the road this June

    KATE VOEGELE

    http://www.katevoegele.com/
    https://www.facebook.com/katevoegele
    https://twitter.com/katevoegele

    Hailing from a little suburb of Cleveland, Ohio, Kate Voegele first picked up a guitar at age 15. Influenced by the rock and roll history of the city and her father’s song writing, she began to pen her own songs from the minute she learned to play her first three chords. Voegele embraced this newfound passion, recording her first EP during her freshman year of high school, and soon after landed gigs alongside artists like Counting Crows and John Mayer. Those shows quickly led to attention from labels in New York and LA, and Kate spent the majority of her high school years diving headfirst into a career in music.

    After high school, Voegele decided to attend Ohio’s Miami University, where she quickly found new inspiration, and simultaneously found herself uploading song after song to her MySpace page. Kate managed to get the attention of the social network’s founder, Tom Anderson, and just a few weeks later, she became MySpace Records’ first signed artist.

    Over the next couple of years, Voegele toured the country playing hundreds of shows. While traveling through LA, Kate auditioned on a whim and would eventually land the role of Mia Catalano on the CW show, “One Tree Hill.” What was supposed to be a two-episode run became a four-season recurrence, and Kate found herself performing eleven of her original songs to millions of viewers over the course of the show.

    TYLER HILTON

    https://tylerhilton.com/
    https://www.facebook.com/TylerHilton/
    https://twitter.com/tylerhilton

    Tyler Hilton was singing and playing in coffee houses as a 15-year-old, when a chance encounter with Los Angeles radio personalities Mark and Brian from KLOS led to multiple appearances on their radio show, live concert dates with the duo, and national exposure. He released his first album independently shortly thereafter, which led to major label interest and eventually signing to Maverick/ Warner Records where he released “The Tracks of Tyler Hilton” which garnered two singles on the Billboard Top 40 charts.

    While on tour promoting the album, Tyler was cast as his child hood hero Elvis Presley in “Walk the Line” where he worked with T-Bone Burnett on the soundtrack, and for which he received a gold record. An opportunity to sing on TV’s “One Tree Hill,” a notorious breeding ground for new musical talent, led to a series long run, several appearances on MTV’s “TRL” with the cast, and a national tour with Gavin DeGraw and Michelle Branch who also sang on the show. Taylor Swift admitted to being a fan, and asked Tyler to star in her music video “Tear Drops on My Guitar” which became a huge crossover hit.

    Tyler then started his own label, Hooptie Tune Records, and released “Forget the Storm”. It became the first record of Tyler’s to gain international success and led to several European tours and a new fervent fan base. His follow up, the mellow folky country album “Indian Summer,” was recorded live in studio with a bluegrass band including his uncle, Tommy Hilton, on guitar. While recording, Tyler landed a role in Halle Berry’s “Extant” on CBS and continued to film the show over the course of its two-season run, touring and filming the holiday movie “Christmas on the Bayou” with Randy Travis, Ed Asner, and “One Tree Hill” alum, Hilarie Burton, for which he also recorded the single “One Foot in the Bayou”. Following the end of “Extant,” Tyler worked on a pilot for the ABC sitcom, “The Fluffy Shop” alongside Gabriel Iglesias. Tyler is currently based in Los Angeles, where he’s working on a new album.

    ‘CLOSE’ SINGLE PRE LAUNCH

    plus support

    ^ Upstairs ^Facebook event

    Dublin singer songwriter ELLYD will be returning to Whelan’s to play her first headline show on what promises to be a beautiful night of original music.

    Following on from her successful EP ‘Lighthouse’ earlier this year, the alternative pop artist will be airing the first play of her highly anticipated new single ‘Close’ at this intimate show.

    As well as the first official sneak peak of her soon to be released new track, ELLYD will also be performing some of her hit songs to date as well as some new unreleased material.

    The singer, whose voice has been compared to the sultry haunting vocals of Gemma Hayes & Skye Edwards, first honed her talent by touring across Europe while also becoming a regular on the Irish music circuit.

    After many years on the Irish music scene, she released her debut solo EP ‘Rise’ reaching number 8 in the iTunes charts.

    Following the success of her first release, ELLYD has played some of Ireland’s biggest festivals and top venues including Electric Picnic, The Secret Village Festival, Battle of the Lake Festival, The Button Factory, Whelans and The Workmans Club.

    Her last EP ‘Lighthouse’ gained huge airplay on local and national radio including on RTE Radio One and Today FM’s ‘Ed’S Songs of Praise’.

    Tickets for the gig will be available from eventbrite.ie priced €8 or can be purchased for €10 at the door on the night.

    “Following the success of ‘Rise’, the alternative-pop artist released her first single of 2017 called lucky on 7th April. For her first material since that EP, ‘Lucky’ is that wrap up her most confident and memorable song yet in 80s pop atmospherics”. Nialler9

    “ELLYD released her new EP ‘Lighthouse’ in January 2018 accompanied by an Irish Tour. 2018 is promising to be a fantastic year for Ms ELLYD. With a unique voice that has been likened to Blondie’s Debbie Harry meets Irish Songstress Gemma Hayes”, the singer’s wide vocal range and hooky melodies along with her uncompromising stage presence have made her stand out from the musical crowd.” The Irish Daily Mirror

    SLOW RIOT

    https://www.facebook.com/slowriot.theband/

    Limerick’s brooding post-punk quartet, Slow Riot infuse post-punk influences – Gang of Four, Television, Wire – with more contemporary bands such as Girl Band and Future of the Left. Formed of Niall Clancy (bass, vocals), Aaron Duff (guitars), Liam O’Connor (guitars) and Paul Cosgrave (drums), early demos of ‘Demons’ and ‘Cooper’s Dream’ were immediately praised by fans and caught the attention of London label Straight Lines Are Fine, who in the summer of 2015 recorded their sell-out debut EP ‘Cathedral’ at the Manic Street Preachers’ FASTER studio in Cardiff with Kevin Vanbergen (The Pixies, The Maccabees, Dinosaur Pile-Up, The La’s and Biffy Clyro). Since then the band has been hotly tipped by tastemakers both in Ireland and the UK, with Drowned In Sound, Q Magazine, The Line Of Best Fit, Hot Press and The Irish Times, amongst many others citing them for big things. Follow up single ‘Trophy Wife’ earned the band plaudits from Shaun Keaveny on the 6Music Breakfast Show, Radio X, Absolute and was a mainstay on the band’s native Today FM with DJ Paul McLoone declaring Slow Riot to be “my new favourite Irish band”, a proclamation he backed up by inviting the band in for a live session and booking them to open his stage at 2016’s Interlude Festival. McLoone has since broadcast one of the band’s gigs live in it’s entirety on his evening show. On the live front Slow Riot have been honing their craft supporting the likes of The Twilight Sad, Mission Of Burma and Girls Names. The band signed to London label Killing Moon for their single ‘Absent Dreams’ before returning to Straight Lines Are Fine for the follow-up, ‘Pink December’. The band are now writing their debut album.

They have toured Ireland and the UK, sharing the stage with Wire, Polvo, Ponytail, And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead and Themselves amongst others. Jogging’s music has been described as “an intense, raw blend of post-hardcore and gutsy indie rock”.

    LALAH HATHAWAY

    plus support

    _ Main Venue _

    honestly – a fitting title for the new album from artist, songwriter, producer and DJ, Lalah Hathaway. Both low-key and legendary, the gentle power of Hathaway’s irrepressible and boundary-defying voice has gone unmissed by those with their ear to the ground…

    Lalah will perform a headline show at Whelan’s, 4th July.

    As a recipient of 5 Grammy awards since 2014 alone, including a win as Artist and Producer for 2017’s Best R&B Album Lalah Hathaway Live, Lalah’s track record speaks for itself. Her collaboration list includes Pharrell Williams and Kendrick Lamar, her Grammy wins have set new records, and her performance history has seen invitations to the stage from icons including Prince; Mary J Blige; Stevie Wonder; Herbie Hancock and Anita Baker.

    honestly is an invitation to join Lalah on a personal journey. A testament to the human experience: it’s intimate, disruptive and, time-appropriately, honest. the colorful palette of this album recalls a feeling of child’s play, powerfully juxtaposed with hard-hitting beats and cut with the songs’ piercing subject matters. On latest single, ‘honestly’ the album’s title- track, Lalah notes:

    ‘I really want to create a pattern interruption for the fans. if you listen to the song ‘honestly’ it tells you about the end of a dream. it’s a love song about love lost. when people see the video I want them to consider ‘honestly’ as a commentary on this moment, the nightmare that is this time and space we are living in.’

    Three piece band from Dublin City who’s music is a fusion of ambient and electronic flavours with deep grooves and soulful vocals.

    ALEX SMYTH

    https://www.facebook.com/alexsmythmusic/

    Alex Smyth is an instrumentalist rightly putting his stamp on the ambient cinematic scene in Dublin. Equipped solely with a guitar, drum machine and a suitcase full of effects, Alex is capable of creating soundscapes that Nialler9 has described as being “a little bit lo-fi, a little bit Balearic and a little bit chillwave”. Having released his debut EP, The Utopian Dream in December 2016 Alex is excited to now showcase his new material, due to be released in 2018. His shows now combine atmospheric melodic adventure with visual elements that can go from micro to macro depending on his surroundings.
