    Debut album Everyday Nothing for February 28th & New single “Perform For You”

    — — — — — —

    Aiken Promotions proudly presents Brooke Bentham live at Whelans, 14th March 2020.

    Brooke also announced her debut album Everyday Nothing is set for release on AllPoints on the 28th of February.

    She also shares a second single, ‘Perform For You’, a melancholy meditation on the power dynamics in toxic relationships. Inspired by novels that Brooke was reading at the time. She probes beneath the surface of a doomed romance from the get-go. “It’s like surrendering to something, even though you know it’s never going to work, realising you’re so dependent on someone and knowing your presence in that relationship. It’s love in the worst way.” she says.

    “‘Perform For You’ is probably my favourite, because it reminds me of lots of the music I love. Once we’d recorded that, I knew we were making an album. Musically it was exactly where I wanted to be.”

    Everyday Nothing follows two EPs of music shored up by intense reflection, which has earned the 23 year old many admirers and a rapidly growing fanbase.

    Brooke writes sharp and eloquent songs about her experiences as she understands them, using words and music to resolve and record the tensions of young adulthood. Confronted with the mundanities of life and caught between two jobs in London, she finds intense lyricism in the struggle for purpose and direction.

    The album is, in her words, “in part an ode to the little moments in life, the frustration of being young and unaware of what you want, but getting older and realising you still don’t know. It’s an album I searched for myself in, filled with questions I asked myself.”

    Written entirely by Brooke, with a few contributions from producer Bill Ryder-Jones (who’s own album Yawn was showered with 4 and 5 star reviews last year), Everyday Nothing documents a fast-rising 23-year-old looking to make sense of her existence.

    So impressed was Ryder-Jones with Brooke’s observational lyricism that he said: “I’ve worked with some amazing songwriters in my career. I think Brooke at 23 is well on her way to being up there with Alex (Turner), Saint Saviour, Mick (Head) and James (Skelly). Her lyric writing will be overlooked because of her voice but it is her words that will set her apart from others.”

    “Perform For You” follows “All My Friends Are Drunk” released early October which was the first taster of Everyday Nothing. A looser indie rock sound than her previous EPs pitched somewhere between Mazzy Star, Yo La Tengo, Sparklehorse and early Angel Olsen and nods to the ‘90s rock bands she was listening to leading up to the album being written, notably Low, Yo La Tengo and Broadcast.

    Brooke heads out on Sam Fender’s sold out UK tour on the 22nd November as his main support with Bill joining her live band.

    For three years she busked and played pubs and open-mic nights around Newcastle, often sharing a stage with her friend Fender, who stole her version of Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Dancing In the Dark’. He will finally repay the favour by taking Brooke on tour starting at Manchester Academy with two Brixton Academy dates.

    Everyday Nothing soundtracks the reality for many young people today. One in which hopes and dreams play out in a haze of confusion and frustration. Brooke captures this existential vulnerability, the baffling day to day-ness of a young life in the most relatable, poetic and compelling of works.  “A lot of life is boring and predictable, but I hope this album is a way of saying that with some charm.”

    Everyday Nothing comes out on February 28th on AllPoints and “Perform For You” is out now.

    GRACE CAMPBELL

    WHY I’M NEVER GOING INTO POLITICS

    _ Main Venue _

    Grace Campbell brings her show Why I’m Never Going Into Politics to Whelan’s this March

    Grace Campbell is a force to be reckoned with. From a very young age, Grace has been taking on powerful men. She started with her father Alastair Campbell and his ex-boss Tony Blair, when she was growing up in and around Westminster. Since then Grace has challenged the patriarchy with her feminist collective The Pink Protest. And now, she wants to have a friendly fight with the world she grew up in; politics.

    In Grace’s debut stand-up show, you can expect vagina jokes, why she thinks she caused Brexit, anecdotes of hanging out with Putin’s kids, plus trying (and failing) to bring the Labour Party back together.

    Grace is rude, laugh-out-loud funny and wildly outspoken.

    As seen on Channel 4 & BBC Politics Live.

    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 pyschedelic 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, Phill 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)

    ^ Upstairs ^

    They say our home defines us. Singer-songwriter Hak Baker’s was in Isle of Dogs in East London, a place that still permeates his music.

    After winning a singing competition in primary school, Hak claims he was tricked into joining a choir, a move which may well have helped to unearth his rare vocal talent. But it was also here he first encountered true diversity, engaging through music with kids from all backgrounds and falling in love with the chaotic yet beautiful multiplicity of the city he called home.

    It was in the streets that his true musical journey began: His love of rock and indie merged with grime and garage, all explored through the lens of teenage mischief. At only 14, his grime collective Bomb Squad peaked in the Channel U video charts with their eponymous debut, cementing Hak’s cult status in the London grime scene.
    Hak has moved from strength to strength, recording music, playing international shows and being named ‘Best singer-songwriter’ as part of Capital Xtra’s Music Potential Programme.

    His musical inspirations mostly consist of classic storytellers like Damien Marley, Skinshape and Massive Attack, artists who paired simple and soft melodies with tales of city life, doomed romance, and solitude.

    Now preparing for his debut single and EP as well as his first headline show in London, Hak’s future is bright. From a turbulent background has emerged a graceful and deeply adept artist, whose combination of a pared-back folk sound with raw vocal performance and quick-witted East London lyricism is truly unique.

    Hak Baker will play upstairs at Whelan’s on Sunday 15TH MARCH 2020 with tickets from €11.80 on sale Wednesday 30th October (9am)

    “Nothing came close to the sensational Neville Staple Band who really got the party started and had the masses dancing along” Anita Merritt-Exeter Express & Echo.

    “It isn’t hard to work out why The Specials lack energy on stage, it’s because Neville Staple took it with him” – Steve Oliver – Nottingham Post

    Neville Staple, Legendary front man of The Specials, Fun Boy Three and Special Beat, also known as The Original Rude Boy, is credited with changing the face of pop music not only once but twice. His celebrates a super 40-year career in the music business which is well documented and started out from the early days with Ray King, Pete Waterman, The Coventry Automatics and his Jah Baddis Sound System, before taking to the stage with The Specials during the famous ‘Clash’ tour.

    Neville states, “I remember the massive reactions to the hit songs like Ghost Town, Too Much Too Young and Gangsters and fans still write to me about my rugged, energetic and fun stage presence. The way we brought ska to the mainstream was by mixing Jamaican music with the English style, which at the time was punk. A lot of young bands are now putting their own spin on ska -some with dance music and some with a rock beat. It’s all good. The music just makes you want to dance. Even when singing about tough times, every-day things or bad things, the beat and the rhythm makes you want to move. I turn all our live shows into a massive party. The crowd love it and sing along to all the tracks!”

    Neville’s 2-Tone legacy is huge. 2-Tone fused traditional ska music with punk rock attitude, energy and musical elements. The movement helped to transcend and defuse racial tensions in Thatcher-era Britain. The actual black and white chequered imagery of 2 Tone has become almost as famous as the music itself.

    Neville Staple continues to write and produce music and along with his wife and manager, Christine Sugary Staple, he works with schools, charities, university and youth groups providing talks, performance tips, music lesson guest-tuition and fund-raising activities. In his hometown of Coventry (where 2Tone music was born), he is celebrated as a Living Legend. He worked with the Lord Mayor to support Coventry in winning the ‘City of Culture 2021’ bid and was recently presented with a ‘Lifetime Achievement Award,’ during a special performance with the children of Foxford School. Now as patrons of the historic Albany Theatre, Neville and his wife continue to work with inner-city children on various creative projects. Neville’s work and performances are regularly screened on mainstream TV.

    Candlelit Tales presents

    SAINTS & SINNERS

    _ Main Venue _

    Facebook event

    You might hear mention this time of year of the man who saved the Pagan Irish and brought them the Good News. But not all of the Pagan Irish were happy about that. The ancient warriors of Ireland had their own code. A code of generosity, hospitality, and courage. In other words, they were terrible sinners.

    This is the story of what happened when a warrior poet met a slave-turned-monk. They talked about gods and goddesses, the nature of truth, and going toe-to-toe with the Devil herself.

    Ronan Friel is a singer-songwriter from Fanad, Donegal. He has begun to build a steady following in the local scene in Dublin since relocating in 2017, some high points include winning the DU Music Singer-Songwriter Competition in 2018 and playing a set in the Ruby Sessions in Doyle’s Bar the same year. In 2019, Ronan focused on recording new material and is now beginning the process of releasing this new wave of music as singles at the start of 2020. Ronan writes music that stirs the soul, it’s sometimes nostalgic and emotional and sometimes up-tempo and made for dancing. His first single, ‘Dance in the Rain’ has now amassed almost 5,000 plays on Spotify and his future releases are set to grow his audience further.

    Last Orders are a band who treat every sound at their disposal like it belongs in their music. Lead by Dillon Cotter, and featuring Ryan O’Neill and Zara Finn. Having produced and recorded their own music, they’ve created a sound space uniquely their own and they are ready to break out into the Dublin music scene under this new project.

    Dillon Cotter is an accomplished writer and director. In 2019, he wrote and directed a musical comedy based on the story of Oisín i dTír na nÓg with an original score, playing for three nights to sold out audiences. He also directed an adaptation of Spring Awakening in 2019, which also sold out each of its three showings. He has also played a supporting role for artists in the past, mainly appearing as a keys player with Tadhg Williams. Dillon is not a stranger to writing large projects, and with the new banner of Last Orders, finally has an avenue to release his original music.

    Last Orders will launch in 2020 with their first single release on January 31st 2020.
