    DoublePlusGood is the moniker of singer/songwriter Erik Carlson. A longtime Portland musician, Carlson has created a sound that beautifully straddles 1960s crooner melancholy with dream pop textures. For the past decade, Carlson has been a trusted supporting act for eclectic touring performers like Ariel Pink, College, and Black Moth Super Rainbow.

    On his newest EP, Like A Fire, Carlson’s four song cycle follows an ill-fated affair between the protagonist and an unattainable man. Like A Fire is an exploration of sexual orientation, phone-app romance, and unchecked passion. Through the soft lens of 1960s jukebox slow-jams, Doubleplusgood’s newest EP is a provocative love/hate-letter to modern intimacy.

    “Whelans First Ever Regular Trad Session”

    Believe it or not Whelan’s has never hosted a regular trad session.

    No one knows quite why but what we do know is what we want ‘Call The Dancers’ to achieve.

    There’s a clue in the name. Trad geeks may recognise ‘Call The Dancers’ as a battle cry issued on ‘I gCnoc na Graí / In Knocknaree’ a live album by Tony McMahon and Noel Hill from 1985 that captures the spirit and passion we humbly hope to take a stab at generating.

    Call The Dancers is where Rónan Ó Snodaigh and Eoin Dillon and friends will share the tunes they love.

    They’ll be sharing them with each other and with the dancers, drinkers and groovers who cross Whelans threshold each Tuesday for the next three months.

    This will be blistering. It will ooze the excitement of our glorious music and bring it to the world with the force it deserves.

    Call The Dancers is for and by people who adore trad and can’t get enough of it.

    We’ll be updating who the guests are when we know.

    Sometimes we will know in advance, sometimes we won’t.

Following 2015’s Juno nominations of Triple A Album Of The Year and Songwriter Of The Year for Compostela, Grant and husband Daniel Ledwell took a year in their home studio to craft an album of melodic beauty and sonic diversity. Grant displays the nuanced soulfulness in her voice, and touches on folk, R&B, and rock balladry. Paradise is the result of a talented, experienced musician employing all her abilities to lengths never before heard.

    THE REVELLIONS

    https://www.facebook.com/therevellions/

    The Revellions are a sextet based in Dublin city that play a mixed sound of Garage Surf Rock with a side order of psychedelic music.

    The band have been taking its sound to the next level following their two well known albums “The Revellions” and “Give it Time”, being promoted by several successful tours in Germany, France, United Kingdom, Norway and Spain. We are currently working in the last bits and pieces of the forthcoming 3rd album, with its characteristic garage rock ‘n roll sound with a touch of psychedelic rock touch the band has always been known for.

    This new album will see the light at the end of 2017 as the band has already started to present the new songs across the core venues of garage rock music in Dublin city and a tour over Spain. We are also releasing a single with a final taste of our new album on 22nd of April at The Grand Social with an exceptional artwork done by Blanca Fons.

    The band have now a pure raw energy live show with lots of influences from the 60s and 70s with a great vibes and a very entertaining show.

    Aoife O’Donovan’s sophomore album, “In the Magic Hour” — produced by Tucker Martine (The Decemberists, Neko Case) — is a 10-song album full of the singer’s honeyed vocals mixed with gauzy, frictionless sounds: splashing cymbals, airy harmonies, the leisurely baritone musings of an electric guitar. Written in the wake of O’Donovan’s grandfather’s death, “In the Magic Hour” is her most introspective effort yet, an aching exploration of memory and mortality.

     

    For a decade, O’Donovan wielded her instrument with tensile strength as the captivating lead singer of the Boston-based progressive string band Crooked Still. She was a featured vocalist on “The Goat Rodeo Sessions,” the Grammy-winning album by Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer and Chris Thile, has made regular appearances on A Prairie Home Companion and collaborated with some of the most eminent names in music across a wide variety of genres from Alison Krauss to Dave Douglas.

     

    In 2013 O’Donovan released her debut solo album, “Fossils,” a moody collection of original songs with a country lilt. The album garnered praise from The New York Times and Rolling Stone, while The Guardian deemed O’Donovan the “next Americana celebrity.” Most recently O’Donovan has lent her voice to the folk trio I’m With Her with singers Sara Watkins (Nickel Creek) and Sarah Jarosz.

    Train Room is the brainchild of Balla songwriter, musician and producer Joe Monaghan. Train Room’s first gig, at Dublin’s showcase Hard Working Class Heroes Festival last October, and debut EP Delicate Bones, brought the band’s distinctive sound to general attention and significant interest. Joe, who has been honing his musical skills recording demos for the past seven or eight years (in his studio in Balla), cites musical influences as broad as Wilco, Whipping Boy, Kate Bush, Neil Young and Nina Simone. But listen to Delicate Bones, and you’ll hear that Train Room makes music that is very much its own. A band on the ascendant, and one to watch.

    This May Train Room embark on their first tour –

    08/05/17- Crane Lane – Cork
    18/05/17- Linenhall arts centre
    19/05/17- Monroes

    27/05/17- Live on Air Festival
    28/05/17- Whelans -Dublin

    “Train Room is full of variety, beautiful musicianship and sublime vocals… Delicate Bones is a quality debut.” –  Ceol Caint

    “Keep an eye out for this band… entrancing songs and arresting arrangements underpinned by his perfectionist work ethic, convincing passion and quiet confidence.” – Ciara Moynihan, Mayo News

    cutting-edge fiddle and cello explorations of Scottish and global music

    ” … you would think they’d been playing together for centuries. While his fiddle dances, her cello throbs darkly or plucks puckishly.

    Then [Haas] opens her cello’s throat, joining Fraser in soaring sustains, windswept refrains, and sudden, jazzy explosions. Their sound is as urbane as a Manhattan midnight, and as wild as a Clackmannan winter.” — Boston Globe

    “As many gigs as they must have played together over the past decade or so, there remains a striking spontaneity about Fraser and Haas’s music-making. He has tonal variation and attack to spare, but what makes them so consistently absorbing is the responsiveness each shows to the other. Haas is more than a cellist: she’s the rhythm section who uses the percussive chip’n’chop of her bowing and the double bass-like pulse of her pizzicato playing to great effect. The accompanist’s role moves so fluently between them, building tension all the while, and then they’ll slip into unison and it’s like floodgates opening. “The Herald

    “Fraser, one of the most respected of all exponents of the Scots fiddle, would look long and hard to find a more appropriate cellist as a partner…A positive joy.”The Scotsman

    The musical partnership between consummate performer Alasdair Fraser, “the Michael Jordan of Scottish fiddling”, and brilliant Californian cellist Natalie Haas spans the full spectrum between intimate chamber music and ecstatic dance energy. Over the last 18 years of creating a buzz at festivals and concert halls across the world, they have truly set the standard for fiddle and cello in traditional music. They continue to thrill audiences internationally with their virtuosic playing, their near-telepathic understanding and the joyful spontaneity and sheer physical presence of their music.

    Fraser has a concert and recording career spanning over 30 years, with a long list of awards, accolades, radio and television credits, and feature performances on top movie soundtracks (Last of the Mohicans, Titanic, etc.). In 2011, he was inducted into the Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame. Haas, a graduate of the Juilliard School of Music, is one of the most sought after cellists in traditional music today. She has performed and recorded with a who’s who of the fiddle world including Mark O’Connor, Natalie MacMaster, Irish supergroups Solas and Altan, Liz Carroll, Dirk Powell, Brittany Haas, Darol Anger, Jeremy Kittel, Hanneke Cassel, Laura Cortese, and many more.

    This seemingly unlikely pairing of fiddle and cello is the fulfillment of a long-standing musical dream for Fraser. His search eventually led him to find a cellist who could help return the cello to its historical role at the rhythmic heart of Scottish dance music, where it stood for hundreds of years before being relegated to the orchestra. The duo’s debut recording, Fire & Grace, won the coveted the Scots Trad Music “Album of the Year” award, the Scottish equivalent of a Grammy. Since its release, the two have gone on to record four more critically acclaimed albums that blend a profound understanding of the Scottish tradition with cutting-edge string explorations. In additional to performing, they both have motivated generations of string players through their teaching at fiddle camps across the globe.

    BILLY CARTER

    Dancing, jumping around with complete insanity, Billy Carter’s live performance is full of energy. They throw themselves around the stage building an atmosphere for their audience full of tension and excitement. The climax of their music is when they get emotionally naked and free. Through their two previously released untitled EPs, commonly referred to as “The Red” and “The Yellow” due to the album covers themselves, Billy Carter has been developing their own sound as a three-piece rock band without bass guitar, and finally, here comes their first full length album “[Here I Am].” According to Jiwon, “For this album, we wanted to be conscientious about our inner self more than external phenomenons. We tried to keep focus on things happening inside of ourselves like deep emotions, the flow of thoughts and so on.”

    Started as an acoustic project by JiwonKim (vo.) and JinaKim (gu.), Billy Carter took its current three-piece rock band form when HyunjoonLee joined on drums just a couple of years ago. Since they released their first EP, “The Red,” in June 2015, they have been chosen as the Rookie of the Year by K-Rookies KOCCA, a national agency charged with supporting culture and art run by Korean government, and many famous music websites and web magazines in Korea as Y, Diffsound, NaverMusic and so on. The EP was nominated for three 2015 Korean Music Awards: Rookie of the Year, Best Rock Music of the Year, and Best Rock Album of the year. Since Billy Carter released an acoustic EP titled “The Yellow” in January 2016, they have been expanding their musical career by taking part in music broadcast shows and music festivals in Korea.

     

    As opposed to their two EPs, their first full length album is concentrated on Billy Carter’s own energy shown at their live performances. You can still see the experimental work on their own way to express themselves. Jinaexplains, “We tried to use many different sounds from the city we’re living in. It was a musical try to express how the world reflects on me.”

     

    There are 13 songs on “[Here I Am]” and first 3 tracks, “Rollin’ Blues,” “Love and Hatred,” and “Lazy Talk” which have been almost always played as their opening act, are recorded at once without pause to reproduce the cheerful energy of their live performance. One of the centerpieces of the album, “You Ate My Brain,” is about being emotionally wasted because of an unbearable and painful feeling of love. Starting with a danceable rhythm, “The Dog” reveals Billy Carter’s rompysense of pop. Two of the most powerful rock songs on the album are “Parking Lot Love,” which is about various forms of love, and “Never Cry Again My Little Lady,” which shares the hope that friends and loved ones who are suffering would not have any more sorrow in their lives. Besides “You Ate My Brain,” “We Can Fight” most accurately represents the sentiment of the album. Through its 7-minute running time, Billy Carter is firmly rooting for all of those fighting against the social expectations and forces. You can listen to how two different voices get mixed each other and make the resonation uniquely in “I Am a Devil.” “I’ll Be a Good Girl” is filled with the most subdued sensibility among the tunes while “I’m So Lonely” lets you enjoy a touch of the blues. The song titled after Billy Carter themselves is a rhythmic rockabilly tune featuring contrabass by Roy from Street Guns, which helps make it even more joyous. The album is rounded out with one last track which is like a snapshot of the band’s time in the studio, with all three bandmatessinging, playing the guitar, clapping and stomping along together.

    “Whelans First Ever Regular Trad Session”

    Believe it or not Whelan’s has never hosted a regular trad session.

    No one knows quite why but what we do know is what we want ‘Call The Dancers’ to achieve.

    There’s a clue in the name. Trad geeks may recognise ‘Call The Dancers’ as a battle cry issued on ‘I gCnoc na Graí / In Knocknaree’ a live album by Tony McMahon and Noel Hill from 1985 that captures the spirit and passion we humbly hope to take a stab at generating.

    Call The Dancers is where Rónan Ó Snodaigh and Eoin Dillon and friends will share the tunes they love.

    They’ll be sharing them with each other and with the dancers, drinkers and groovers who cross Whelans threshold each Tuesday for the next three months.

    This will be blistering. It will ooze the excitement of our glorious music and bring it to the world with the force it deserves.

    Call The Dancers is for and by people who adore trad and can’t get enough of it.

    We’ll be updating who the guests are when we know.

    Sometimes we will know in advance, sometimes we won’t.

    Voids is the sixth LP and the first full-length album in five years from the Seattle four-piece Minus the Bear, and was released this month on their original label home of Suicide Squeeze Records.

    Voids illustrates a change of pace for the group. The band has always experimented with a diverse range of sounds, and has been largely successful in colliding a ton of influences into their music. “There was a lot of change and uncertainty,” says guitarist David Knudson. “I think the general vibe of emptiness, replacement, lacking, and longing to fill in the gaps was very present in everyones’ minds.”

    Being their first release in half a decade, they used a new producer in Sam Bell (Weezer, Bloc Party, Two Door Cinema Club) to get a fresh take on their material, and keyboardist/vocalist Alex Rose took a more prominent role in the composition process, even taking over lead vocals on a few songs. They also welcomed drummer Kieffer Matthias.

    Over their career, Minus The Bear have sold more than 500,000 records worldwide, and Voids will be their first new LP since 2012’s Infinity Overhead.

    Garry Wayne Tallent (born October 27, 1949, Detroit, Michigan), sometimes billed as Garry W. Tallent, is an American musician and record producer, best known for being bass player and founding member of the E Street Band, Bruce Springsteen’s primary backing band since 1972. As of 2013, and not counting Springsteen himself, Tallent is the only original member of the E Street Band remaining in the band. Tallent was inducted as a member of the E Street Band into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

    Growing up in Neptune City around the Jersey shore, Tallent took up first the tuba and then the bass.[2] He was influenced by James Jamerson, Donald “Duck” Dunn, and Paul McCartney. He started playing with Springsteen in 1971 in two earlier bands and then was an original member of the E Street Band, who formed in 1972.[3] Both visually and musically he stays in the background though his bass plays a key role in Springsteen’s music; his most notable bass parts may be on the song “Fire” and the last verse of “Incident on 57th Street”. During the E Street Band’s early years, he occasionally played the tuba on some of Springsteen’s quirkier early songs, both in concert and on record (most notably “Wild Billy’s Circus Story”).

    In addition to his work with Springsteen, Tallent has recorded with numerous other artists. In 1987 Tallent produced the song “Crying, Waiting, Hoping” for Marshall Crenshaw on La Bamba soundtrack. During the long time the E Street Band was inactive in the 1990s, Tallent moved to Nashville, having an affinity for country and western and rockabilly music. (By this point, Tallent had already long been referred to by the nickname “The Tennessee Terror,[4]” a name given to him after once driving through Tennessee briefly on a roadtrip). There he opened the MoonDog recording studio and helped start the D’Ville Record Group label. Tallent has produced such artists as Jim Lauderdale and Steve Forbert.

    Described by Hotpress magazine as ‘A star in the making’, SÍOMHA (pronounced Shee-va) has been captivating audiences worldwide with her infectious soulful energy and beautifully crafted songs. In 2014, the Co. Clare native left Ireland to explore the major music cities of America, a journey that exposed her to the vibrant and richly diverse musical culture of the Southern States. She embraced the music scene of each city, often guesting with local bands, an experience that evolved into one of self-discovery for her. Her road trip finally took her to Nashville, where she was invited to share the stage with the multi Grammy-winning country legend Vince Gill.

    SÍOMHA returned to Ireland in late 2016 to release her single, ‘Why Did We Fall In Love?’. Recorded in Austin, Texas, the song echoes great torch singers from another era. It was included on the RTE Radio 1 Playlist for 8 weeks and was in the Top 10 Most Played Irish Tracks in 2016 on the station.

    She will be playing a full band show Upstairs in Whelan’s on Friday June 2nd.

    “SÍOMHA’s voice possesses delicate grace. Her cool clear crystal vocals evoke the cadence of super-special singers like Amy Winehouse, Brittany Howard and Ella Fitzgerald. Her stylish and Jazz infused songs perfectly match that voice.” – Gerry Quinn (Music Journalist)

    Last winter, inspired by music, surf & anti-contest art, I traveled from the UK to Hawaii via Nashville. My aim was to record an album by the time I reached the North Pacific.

    I packed a guitar, a few microphones and a camera for the 3 month trip and counted on the kindness of strangers to connect the dots.
