    “The best folk band to have come out of Scotland in the last twenty years” New York Times

    “The best band of their generation” (The Living Tradition)

    “A band with the potential to dominate the Scottish/Irish traditional scene for the next twenty years” (Fatea Magazine)

    Scotland’s Paul McKenna has long been ranked among our finest younger singers and songwriters, armed with a powerful yet intensely emotive voice and passionate social conscience, often expressed through his songs, a combination that’s brought frequent comparisons to the great Dick Gaughan.

    He and his band – comprising Robbie Greig (fiddle), Conal McDonagh (pipes/whistles), Conor Markey (banjo/bouzouki/guitars) and Ewan Baird (percussion) – draw on both Scottish and Irish roots, in a dynamic, full-bodied array of original and traditional material, along with songs by like-minded authors including Peggy Seeger, Alistair Hulett and Jim Reid. Following 2016’s tenth anniversary release Paths That Wind, they’re currently at work on their fifth album.

    Aiken Promotions proudly presents Haley Heynderickx live at Whelans, 24th April 2019. Tickets €13.50 inclusive of booking fee, on sale tomorrow at 10AM.

    It takes a mix of skill and luck to tend a garden well, but it’s impossible without a certain amount of kindness tended. While the cyclical nature of gardening seems inherent, in some ways, Heynderickx is just beginning.

    Her debut album, named I Need to Start a Garden out of a search for calm through these waves of uncertainty and upheaval, is available now via Mama Bird Recording Co.

    Heynderickx grew up in a religious household in Oregon, closely identifying with her Filipino roots, but also straddling multiple cultural identities. Now residing in Portland, her faith is not overt, but her introspection and continued struggle for self-actualization are easily accessible and relatable.

    Likewise, the tracks on I Need to Start a Garden reflect these seemingly disparate elements. Through soft acoustic guitar picking and deftly accented trombone sighs, Heynderickx’s music immediately recalls folk music of the ’60s and ’70s mixed with a love of jazz radio. But Heynderickx’s singing—her vocals that range from sultry to operatic—belie a tenacity in her soul.

    It’s a balance, then, between exposing and protecting herself on I Need to Start a Garden . Heynderickx vacillates between powerlessness (opener “No Face”) and empowerment (lead single “Oom Sha La La”). But her generosity of spirit remains the constant throughout the whole album.

    ^ Upstairs ^

    Following his smash hit debut single We Should Run which saw Ireland native Josh Gray skyrocket to the top of the charts, Gray continues making sizeable and impressionable waves on the pop scene. Though only 21, Josh Gray’s career in pop music is well-founded and he utilises this tenacious background in the industry to his advantage, resulting in flawlessly crafted pop songs befitting of his own musical influences as OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, Justin Timberlake and Maroon 5.

    Josh Gray’s ability to marry groovy melodic riffs to his high falsetto makes his tracks uniquely energetic, and this is particularly evident on his second single Cut Loose, where an explosive and irresistibly catchy chorus booms out from an otherwise feel-good pop anthem. Cut Loose has been added to Spotify’s NMF UK, New Pop Revolution, A Perfect Day and A Breath of Fresh Eire and Ireland & UK Viral 50 playlists and is getting strong Irish airplay.

    Josh Gray will play Upstairs at Whelans on Thursday 25th April with tickets from €12.80 incl booking fee on sale Friday 22nd February at 10am from Ticketmaster

    True Tides are Cian, Conor and Eoghan MacSweeny. The 3 brothers have been playing music together their whole lives, developing an energetic sound with a sharp-edged pop dynamic driven by guitars and electronics with layered vocal harmonies at its core. They played their first show in January 2018 and signed with Faction Records.

    True Tides have been receiving rave reviews for their high energy live performances and song-writing brimming with catchy melodies and irresistible hooks. Their last single ‘Automatic’, co-produced with Chris Bubenzer of Diffusion Lab, achieved widespread national and local air play from its release in August and continues to receive regular rotation on national radio.

    They sold out their first headline show in the Soundhouse, Dublin and went on to support All Tvvins at Cork Opera House, Delorentos on their Irish tour and the Coronas for their sold out shows at the Olympia and Ulster Hall, Belfast. They also played main stage at Castlepalooza and Indiependence Music Festivals and the 2FM Rising stage at Other Voices, Dingle.

    Their debut single ‘Higher’ was released April 2018. Produced by Phil Magee (Kodaline, The Script) and mixed by Ross Dowling (James Vincent McMorrow, BellX1, Talos) the track was made Eoghan McDermott’s song of the week. They also released ‘Higher – Solo’, a stripped back version of the single, in December which was playlisted by Spotify UK, New Music Friday.

    After an explosive first year, True Tides have been included on the 2FM Rising list for 2019 and their new single ‘The Answer’, co-produced with Cormac Butler (Kodaline, AllTvvins), was released on the 11th January.

    The sensitive power woman: brilliant…inspiring…uncompromising

    The US singer/songwriter RACHAEL YAMAGATA returns for the first time since six years back to Ireland on her 2019 Euro Tour, performing not only her classic iconic songs but also new material from her new releases “Porch Songs” and “Tiightrope Walker”.

    On stage RACHAEL YAMAGATA reveals all facets of her skills: lot of power in her voice, sensitive lyrics and a combative sound.

    A “Tightrope Walker” is a person who goes its way undeterred while always feeling the abyss. Inspired by the famous tightrope walker Philippe Petit who walked from one to the other of the Twin Towers in New York City back in 1974. Rachael feels sometimes the same excitability as an independent artist. You have to rely on yourself feeling the overwhelming adrenaline when your on stage.

    RACHAEL YAMAGATA self-produced “Tightrope Walker” and brought her long-time producer, 3x-Grammy nominee John Alagia (John Mayer, Dave Matthews Band) onboard halfway through the process as co-producer. She rounded up an illustrious array of guest performers, including Ben Perowsky (Rufus Wainwright), Zach Djanikian (Amos Lee), Kevin Salem (Yo La Tengo), Grammy Award winners Owen Biddle (The Roots), Matt Chamberlain, and Victor Indrizzo, as well as celebrated musicians Russell Simins (Jon Spencer Blues Explosion) among others.

    Rachael Yamagata is not your ordinary singer/songwriter. Yes, she has released numerous albums; had record label deals; toured the world multiple times with sell-out concerts; built a loyal and ever-growing fan base; earned her place as a media ‘darling’; made appearances on Jay Leno, Conan O’Brien, Carson Daly, “30 Rock,” “One Life to Live” and “The O.C.”; been an NPR profiled artist; made a cameo appearance as herself in Sony Pictures’ To Write Love on Her Arms; had song placements in hit TV shows including “NCIS: New Orleans,” “Vampire Diaries,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Alias,” “How I Met Your Mother,” and in and Hollywood movies including “Hope Springs,” “Prime,” “Monster-in-Law,” and “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants”; been nominated Best Female Vocal by the Chicago Music Awards (2012); opened for artists including Patti Smith, David Gray, and Pete Townsend; and performed at venues including Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall, Carnegie Hall, SXSW, Austin City Limits, Glastonbury, and Bonnaroo.

    But there’s so much more…Rachael breaks the mold of the singer/songwriter stereotype – think Tom Waits meets Roberta Flack, Nick Cave hanging with Rufus Wainwright. Rachael is always full of surprises

    Rachael has collaborated with artists including Ryan Adams, Ray LaMontagne, Conor Oberst, Jason Mraz and Toots and the Maytals, She’s toured with many of said artists, as well as Joshua Radin, Sara Bareilles, Amos Lee, Liz Phair, and more. Rachael was invited by the White House to take part in its Official White House ‘Tweet Up’ in the West Wing with fans, and was one of Chopra’s music playlist selections featured on Oprah Winfrey’s website.

    “Finally the heir to Bonnie Raitt.” – Ann Powers, NPR Music

    “Restoring female pop’s good name.” – Philadelphia Inquirer

    “Rachael’s voice is so soulful that it could inspire a tiger to chuff, an elephant to trumpet and whales to sing.” – Gregory Colbert

    “Think Tom Waits meets Roberta Flack, Nick Cave hanging with Rufus Wainwright” – paradigm

    SOMA #029 ft. Odd Morris & The Wha

    SOMA is back at it this month in Whelans and we have two of Irelands newest and most exciting guitar bands playing live sets.

    Odd Morris just dropped their debut single ‘What Might Be’ which quickly got the attention of blogs and Dublin music lovers a like. Odd Morris have delivered a sound that’s dark, ominous, and wildly eneregtic we’re extremely excited to be having them headline SOMA #029 and we can’t wait to see what they bring to the SOMA stage.

    The Wha have emerged as one of the youngest and brightest additions to the Irish guitar scene. They’ve managed to obtain a sound that is distinctly their own but draws from guitar heroes such as The La’s and Libertines. This is no mean feat and it’s no wonder why they’ve being dubbed as one of Ireland’s most exciting new prospects.

    Doors at 11pm

    As per usual we’ll have the SOMA Resident DJs spinning your favorite indie (&hip-hop) tunes until 3am!

    SOMA originated as a series of house parties in Dublin hosting bands and DJs until stupid o’clock. The SOMA clubnight aims to carry on the house party tradition, showcasing Dublins best up and coming bands followed by a sweaty party soundtracked by all your favourite indie and alternative bangers.

    SOMA PLAYS:

    – PLAY THE FRONT BAR –

    Facebook event

    10:30pm – FREE ENTRY

    Dublin Blues Cartel formed a year and half ago, after a long association. They began playing every Monday in the Leeson Lounge, playing mostly a version of New Orleans R’n’B with a classic rock twist, sandwiched with swing, Rock’n’Roll, Soul, Funk, Blues and rap of all eras.Their sets consists of radical reworkings of well known R’n’B standards which segue into lengthy improvisations that are one minute, blues jazz crescendo, the next a funk dervish, one minute a psychedelic freak out, next a country boogie twist, the next a dark ascension of Wagnerian majesty.

    Featuring some the best musicians Ireland has ever produced, Dublin Blue cartel are:

    James Delaney (James has played with Sharon Shannon, Van Morrison, Paul Brady, Chuck Berry, Andrew Strong)

    Pat Farrell: Lead Guitar (The Business, Red Peters). Pat had shared stages with B.B. King, Jeff Healy, John Primer and Carlos Johnson

    John Quearney: Bass (Donovan, Heavy Waits, The Business, Left right n Centre,)

    Noel Bridgeman: Drums. Noel was a founding member of Skid Row, one of the most important Irish rock bands, whose members included Gary Moore, Phil Lynott and Brush Shields. He has also recorded with Van Morrison, Steve Earle, Sharon Shannon and has played with Mary Black and many other legendary Irish artists.

    Mick Pyro is a member of Republic of Loose who have had three top ten albums in Ireland, one reaching number 2. Mick has supported U.2., The Roots, Ian Brown, The Neville Brothers, Guns n Roses, Snow Patrol and the New York Dolls. He has Co- produced a track for Sinead O, Connor and has appeared with her on stage several times. He has recorded with Camp Lo, Styles P (I like Music) and U.2. (Tribute to Ronnie Drew)

    Indie-folk singer songwriter Con Murphy is bringing his live show to Whelan’s, Dublin this April 30th along with his full band. Fresh off the back of a fantastic 2018 where twice played support to Aslan, made his first festival appearance with his band at Electric Picnic 2018 and played a sold out EP launch show in Stöðvarfjörður Iceland, he kicks off the live 2019 shows with an appearance at the iconic Whelans venue. His debut 4-track EP ‘The Fjord’ – a selection of folk songs that includes his catchy pop debut ‘Don’t Freak Out,’ and delves deeper to explore the delicate sounds of folk ballads with each song – from the lead track and powerful melancholy stand out folk ballad “Heavens Table” made up of ethereal piano, atmospheric guitar and poignant lyrics – described by Lyric FM’s Marty Whelan as “Gorgeous”(due for rerelease as a re-mastered single in April 2019), followed by uplifting and romantic piano track “Patiently Wait” which explores a the concept of patience and all its importance.

    The final track and namesake of the EP ‘The Fjord’ was written on a trip to Iceland, Inspired by the stories from the Icelandic eastern fjords about love and wonder, Con wove them together with gentle melodies whilst sitting listening to the sultry tones of Patsy Cline. The song gives you a sense of homely nostalgia as the lyrics paint a story of time passing in a relationship and the wonderment of emigration.

    The EP is a warm and heartfelt offering from a skilled storyteller with a guitar and proves Con Murphy is a songwriter worth listening to. The EP has grabbed some significant attention since its release in late March 2018 receiving airplay on national radio both at home and abroad, and earned Con feature slots at various festivals last summer both in Ireland and in the UK. He followed the success of his debut EP with a new single release under the title ‘Chocolate Pills’ which acts as a metaphor for positive human interaction, compassion and empathy expressed through a catchy alternative 80’s synth-pop track which blatantly explores sounds from his biggest musical influences including The Cure and Bell X1.

    After receiving great reviews in Pure M magazine and features as the #714 Joe.ie Song Of The Day – Chocolate Pills is certainly one for your playlists. Having spent the past number of years developing his live show which has included appearances on the same bill as The Frank & Walters, Paddy Casey, Duke Special, Mundy, U.M.A.N, David Keenan and Damien Dempsey, this is an opportunity to get a full preview of Con’s upcoming album due for release in late 2019.

    From the live show you can expect a “Forceful yet friendly combination of pop, rock and folk” – (Pure M Magazine on ‘Chocolate Pills’ single) – which pretty much sums up the varied live sound and what you can expect on the night!

    Con & his band have been invited back to play the Electric Picnic Music and Arts festival 2019 and will also be appearing at the LaSemo festival in Brussels, Belgium this summer for the bands first international festival appearance.

    Formed in 2015, Wicklow-based alt-punks Felonies have striven to define themselves as one of Ireland’s most exciting live acts. Taking inspiration from the reemergence of distorted garage rock and post-punk, the band combines raw lyricism, harsh musicality and melodic hooks to carve their unique sound. This has given the band the opportunity to bring their thunderous live-set to some of Ireland’s most infamous venues and festivals, as well as lending support duties to bands such as Fontaines DC, TOUTS, Boy Azooga, Island and Vistas, on top of two consecutive years at Electric Picnic. Upon the release of their most recent singles, the band received widespread critical acclaim, and radioplay from the likes of BBC Ulster, RTÉ 2FM and 2XM, 8Radio and Dundalk FM (also including a coveted Studio 8 session with Dan Hegarty). With a revamped appearance and sound for 2019, Felonies intend on maintaining their high standard of music and creating a stir in the Irish (and hopefully international) music scene, giving the band the opportunity to bring their high-octane live set to the masses and critics alike.

    They are not an act to be missed out on.

    _ Main Venue _

    Kildare native Ryan Mc Loughlin (aka Ryan Mack) was previously a member of the boyband Hometown who enjoyed a successful but short career with two number one singles and multiple tour dates under their belts, but when they finished up in 2016 Ryan decided to take a break from the limelight and spent the following couple of years writing and working very hard on his own music.

    In early 2018 Ryan released his first solo single titled ‘SOFA’ which was immediately play-listed on 2FM, Spin, Spin SW, FM104 and many more. The song became a great success on radio and launched Ryan’s solo career pretty much overnight.

    Ryan recently performed ‘Sofa’ as a live guest act on RTE’s ‘Dancing With The Stars’ and got a huge response from it. A slot that was given previously to artists such as Gavin James and Picture This. Following on this success Ryan released his second single ‘I Don’t Wana’. It too has been enjoying great support from all radio stations which has seen his fan base grow rapidly. His third solo single is due for release in the coming weeks and this is a track that Ryan is particularly excited to put out there.

    Ryan is delighted to be finally announcing his debut solo show at Whelans, Dublin on Friday May 3rd.

    V98 (Darragh Geoghegan – vocals, Conor Healy – lead guitar, Craig Geoghegan – bass guitar and Richie O’Brien – drums) are an alternative indie band making their presence felt on the Irish music landscape.

    With energetic live performances and a catalog of songs that veers from digestible melodic, hook laden anthems to raw and bristling foot stompers, the Dublin four piece are equipped with everything needed to take 2019 by storm.

    The group started in January of 2018, when Darragh, Conor and Richie decided to turn their regular musical get-together’s into something more meaningful. A hurriedly put together gig in the Bello Bar was so successful that it became obvious that there was something worth pursuing, and the three longtime friends began writing and rehearsing songs for their new project. It was not until Craig, a cousin of Darragh’s who had moved to Ireland in May, joined the band as a bass player though, that the group really began to assume their identity and find the sound that defines them today.

    The latter half of 2018 brought with it a string of gigs, with V98 becoming the fastest and highest ever selling band under the popular Garage Gigs promotion, headlining slots at the Sound House and the Button Factory.

    Soon after they linked up with Dan Doherty of Darklands Audio (Fontaines D.C., Vulpynes, Galants) to record their debut singles, the first of which – “Dublin” – was released in February 2019.

    Press Quotes

    “Wildly charismatic front-man Darragh Geoghegan, songs and melodies dangling out of every pocket” Derek Foley – Buzz.ie

    “With a punchy guitar-driven sound not heard since Indie’s heyday in the 00s, V98’s raw recorded material is bolstered by their tight live performances.” Eric Davidson – District Magazine
