    The Teskey Brothers are a rare musical gem.

    Honouring that old school Motown sound and working it into something of their very own

    , the band have received widespread acclaim for their gorgeous debut album Half Mile Harvest.

    A raw combination of soul and blues, the record has warmed the hearts of listeners everywhere with it’s melancholic, analogue tones.

    Written by all four band members, the album was recorded in their own home studio, self-produced and released independently.

    Listening to the record you’d be forgiven for thinking it was the work of Stax Records alumni in Memphis circa ‘67 rather than a group of twenty-somethings from the Yarra Valley just outside Melbourne. The feeling is as old as the tape machine it was recorded on and it’s a true expression of love.

    Onstage singer Josh Teskey’s smoked whiskey voice defies expectation as the band around him hold an irresistible groove.

    Their undeniable live show has wowed audiences around the world, leaving them infected with soul and blues.

    The Teskey Brothers will play Whelan’s on Saturday January 25th 2020 with tickets from €17.50 on sale Wednesday 7th August at 9am

    Tickets for Robyn Hitchcock cost EU15.00 and are on sale at 9am Friday 8th November from www.selectivememory.ie

    “A gifted melodist, Hitchcock nests engaging lyrics in some of the most bracing, rainbow-hued pop this side of Revolver. He wrests inspiration not from ordinary life but from extraordinary imaginings…” – Rolling Stone

    Robyn Hitchcock is one of England’s most enduring contemporary singer/songwriters and live performers. A surrealist poet, talented guitarist, cult artist and musician’s musician, Hitchcock is among alternative rock’s father figures and is the closest thing the genre has to a Bob Dylan (not coincidentally his biggest musical inspiration).

    Since founding the art-rock band The Soft Boys in 1976, Robyn has recorded more than 20 albums as well as starred in ‘Storefront Hitchcock’ an in concert film recorded in New York and directed by Jonathan Demme.

    Blending folk and psychedelia with a wry British nihilism, Robyn describes his songs as ‘paintings you can listen to’. His most recent album is self-titled and marks his 21st release as a solo artist. Out on April 21 2017, the album is produced by Brendan Benson (The Raconteurs). Hitchcock describes it as a “ecstatic work of negativity with nary a dreary groove.”

    Praise for Robyn Hitchcock:

    “These 10 gems slither, rock, roll, glide and shapeshift, coalescing around Hitchcock’s typically anxious, strained but striking and immediately identifiable vocals.” – American Songwriter

    “Beloved of everyone from Led Zeppelin to REM, Hitchcock has only enhanced his status with this wonderful outing.” – Hot Press

    “Witty, moving and seriously catchy, Robyn Hitchcock is a glorious return for a man who wasn’t really gone in the first place.” – Paste Magazine

    “A laid back sound that evokes cream sliding over black coffee, dark bourbon rippling over ice.” – Tom Franks, Folkwords.com

    “Absolute knockout…ace!!” – Frank Hennessey, BBC Wales

    *****

    Aiken Promotions proudly presents Sam Lewis, live at Whelan’s (Up), 29th January 2020. Tickets €13.00 inclusive of booking fee, on sale now.

    With rich soulful vocals, well-crafted songs, roots country and blue-eyed soul Sam Lewis is connecting the dots. Whether crossing genres or state lines, he has pieced together a story people need to hear. Sam Lewis’ debut album ‘Waiting on you’ received a top review from Mojo and featured in the Telegraph’s list of top country albums from 2015.

    Lewis’ record loversity released in May 2018 is composed of 14 tracks that Lewis has spent over a year and a half writing and playing for others. Since Waiting on You, his classic style remains present yet matured, with a more refined worldview, “These newer songs have been harder to write, but extremely necessary given the current climate I find the world in.” Recorded at Southern Ground Studios with engineer and co-producer Brandon Bell, the album spans from upbeat songs like the title track “Loversity” to the darker “One in the Same,” an electric guitar heavy- ballad with a driving force reminiscent of the Black Keys’ Brothers. While most songs are originals, the record includes “Accidental Harmony”,a lullaby that fellow Nashville songwriter John Mann wrote for his first born child, and “Natural Disaster”, a Loudon Wainwright song that Lewis felt drawn to.

    As current events in the world divide the masses based on difference, Sam Lewis’ new album is a soul-filled, catchy collection of reminders that diversity and unity can co-exist.

    Sam is not the first man to turn over this primal soil, but he is unquestionably here to be the one that keeps sowing the field. Lewis laments, “I flip on a radio or stare at my phone, and I hear some familiar sounds and I see some flashy things being made right now – and that’s cool. But it’s real hard to find something that’s being said beyond what’s superficial. And then go I and spin a record by Lee Dorsey and I feel the world lifted with four words and a funky groove, and then I’ll listen to Pops Staples preaching the most earnest spirit with some shake, swagger and sweat thrown on it – and man there it is, there’s the fresh air, there’s the hope. These are the men that paved the path I want to walk on, the path I want to preserve. Everyone is welcome to walk it with me. I hope they do.”

    KERN

    plus support

    ^ Upstairs ^

    Louth folk favourites Kern are back in 2020 with the trio’s eagerly awaited new album, their first since their critically acclaimed debut False Deceiver.

    The Left and The Leaving is a similar showcase of the band’s unusual mix of personalities: Barry Kieran is a former Leinster champion fiddler, steeped in the raw, pure music of Oriel; Brendan McCreanor is an uilleann piper of rare passion and versatility whose distinctive playing is at once both modern and rooted in tradition and SJ McArdle is a critically acclaimed songwriter and singer who has previously toured and recorded internationally.

    Kern’s music is a distillation of skillfully executed traditional elements – including a deep respect for native songlines – combined with fresh and often raw contemporary perspectives. Mining the deep cultural seams of their native Louth, the band presents thrilling interpretations of the music of the past and blistering, sometimes heart-wrenching new songs and compositions. The eclectic weave of their music is a result of their myriad influences and diverse formative experiences and backgrounds.

    The Left and the Leaving was produced by Trevor Hutchinson and features the Lúnasa/Waterboys man on double bass throughout. There are also appearances by Dónal O’Connor (Ulaid, At First Light) and Eamonn Moloney (Full Set, Aoife Scott).

    Kern have been hard at work since the extensive press and radio coverage which accompanied the first album’s release, clocking up the miles on Ireland’s highways and byways. Along the way the band have also played shows in Germany, Canada and the US, including at Milwaukee Irish Fest and Folk Alliance International in Montréal. The band also won the 2018 Temple Bar TradFest showcase.

    The new album’s release comes hard on the heels of the band’s sell-out showcase concert at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann 2019 and resulting live appearances on Fleadh TV, RTE Radio 1’s John Creedon Show and Raidio na Gaeltachta and their debut appearence at Other Voices. The release will be marked with an extensive Irish tour.

    ^ Upstairs ^

    The Local Honeys are comprised of Linda Jean Stokley and Montana Hobbs. Stokley (right) from the rolling hills of the Bluegrass, and Hobbs (left) from the foothills of the Appalachian region have developed a sweet sound of the bluegrass kissing the mountains.

    They have dedicated themselves to the preservation of old music and the creation of new music. Their songwriting often reflects subject matter that little girls ought not talk about. This element played a strong impact in the production and creation of their debut album, “Little Girls Actin’ Like Men.”

    Including both traditional and original songs, “Little Girls” showcases the Honey’s ability to tear into hard driving fiddle tunes, sing the high lonesome sound, and tell a damn good story.

    The Honeys are ideal for private events, festivals, square dances, music camps, weddings, and capable of leading various workshops on Kentucky stylings of the fiddle and banjo, vocal techniques and songwriting. The Local Honeys have toured heavily across the Southeast and the U.S. as well as internationally as ambassadors of Appalachian music. If scheduling is cooperative, The Local Honeys are available as a duo, trio, or full string band to add even more energy to their lively show

    Rock Star Credentials, include:

    Two personal letters of praise and encouragement from Olive Hill, Kentucky’s own, “The Storyteller,” Tom T. Hall.

    The first women to receive Bachelor of Arts degrees in Traditional “Hillbilly” Music from Morehead State University in Morehead, Kentucky

    Tours in Ireland, Jamaica, and Europe and the U.S.

    Winners of the 2017 Chris Austin Memorial Songwriting Contest at Merlefest in Wilkesboro, North Carolina for their anti-strip mining song, “Cigarette Trees”

    ‘Local Boy Ruins Everything’ is the new EP from Irish artist Local Boy, aka Jake Hurley. The Burner Records co-founder wrote, produced and mixed the entirety of the five track project which tells indie infused tales of everyday mundanity and dreams of rock ‘n’ roll stardom.

    Local Boy has recently been featured on some high profile Spotify playlists such as “Lo-Fi Indie” and currently has 30,000 monthly listeners.

    On February 6th Local Boy takes his new EP to the stage along with a full live band. Support from Sourfruit.
