    MODESTO

    https://www.facebook.com/MusicOfModesto/

    Introducing a four piece rock band from Dublin. 2016 was a great year for the band as they introduced themselves to the Irish Music scene playing packed out shows in Whelans, supporting HamSandwich on their Satellites Tour and showcasing the band at Electric Picnic. They’ve got a heavy blues rock sound influenced by an eclectic array of artists, too many to mention. The lineup includes Mike Sleeman on Guitar & Lead Vocals. Rhys Waters on Lead Guitar and Keyboard. Dan Stuart on Drums & Backing Vocals and Shane Fitzgerald on Bass. They’ve spent the last few months of the year writing new tunes with plans to get into the studio to record and then gig throughout 2017. There will be photo’s, video’s and music and maybe some other stuff also. Stay tuned…

    YOU BREAK, YOU BUY (U.K.)

    https://www.facebook.com/ybybmusic/

    You Break, You Buy are an instrumental rock quartet based in London, UK. Like most people these days, they met through the Internet in the Autumn of 2012. After a few dates and some heavy petting they knew that a strong musical bond would be formed and set about writing a bunch of songs that would become their first EP, Happy Happenstance, released at the end of 2014. The EP was unanimously well received, garnering kind reviews from the likes of Fecking Bahamas and featuring on The Math-Rock News’ Winter ’14/15 compilation. Gigging, further writing of material and a few live video sessions have kept the band busy. They are due to release their much anticipated second EP on the 18th of January 2017.

    THE DUBLIN BLUES CARTEL

    – PLAY THE FRONT BAR –

    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 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)

    Haunting folk for every persuasion. Wood is a musical documentarian of immense complexity and subtlety ***** – Irish Times

    ‘One of our finest songwriters.’ ***** Independent (UK)

    “If I had a towel I’d throw it in” – Chris Difford (Squeeze)


    Chris Wood is an uncompromising writer whose music reveals his love for the un-official history of the English speaking people. With gentle intelligence he weaves the tradition with his own contemporary parables.

    A self-taught musician, composer and song writer, Chris is a lifelong autodidact whose independent streak shines through everything he does. Always direct and unafraid to speak his mind, his song writing has been praised for its surgical clarity. He cites his major influence as “Anon”.

    His eagerly awaited new album ‘So Much to Defend’ (officially released 27th Jan 2017) was previewed at Cambridge Folk Festival last summer and includes reflections on minor league football, empty nest syndrome, learning to swim, Cook-in Sauce and, not least, the Gecko as a metaphor for contemporary society.

    Hollow Point; his chilling ballad of the shooting of Jean Charles Menezez, won a BBC Folk Award (he’s won six.) and emphatically secured Wood’s place as a serious speech-master for the unofficial history of England.

    Collaborators include Martin Carthy, Dizraeli, Billy Bragg, Andy Cutting, Andy Irvine, Karine Polwart, Jean Francois Vrod, The Imagined Village, Hugh Lupton, Martin Butler and many others.  

    On stage Chris has the air of a craftsman who no longer needs to be precious about his art. Without any apparent effort he reaches deep into an enviable repertoire of songs before revealing another gem.

    “… at art school they said I had a remarkable eye for trivia, like it was a bad thing.”

    This is music that will speak to you about things that have happened! An album that sounds like you are alone in the desert all by yourself. Remembering childhood experiences and musical instruments and all the joy that took place. We have forgotten because of terrible things that have happened. Is it the truthfulness that attracts you to this music? Listen out of time: Mark Olson & Ingunn Ringvold are singing ‘Spokeswoman of the Bright Sun’, the follow-up of the critically acclaimed Alternative Country/Americana masterpiece ‘Good-bye Lizelle’ (Glitterhouse Records, 2014).

    “Our album was recorded during a Joshua Tree summer basically inside our cabin/home but sometimes outside on the porch,”  says Mark, “it was warm and I was making a lot of strange ice teas, brewing recipes that came from an herb book I had bought at the local thrift store. We went right from writing, to rehearsal to recording in the May, June and July time period and I think that is the secret to making a unique album, keeping the momentum of the writing and part learning of the song as you move towards to final takes. The recording sessions with Danny Frankel (drums) took place in the morning before the Mojave heat was on. Danny lives nearby and has developed his own language via his beat communiques (a type of tambourine Esperanto). We were able to go back over some of the grooves and try different approaches and some of the songs just worked on the first couple of takes. Later that summer we visited with Lewis Keller (bass) in his home in Colorado. We had a time and rather than show him charts and such we went on and on about the themes and significance of each song and how it relates to the recorded folk-rock legacy on certain albums stuck in time. The writing of the music for this album is the desert I long to return to, this valley of string sounds is where I really want to be and what takes up the most time in my heart. The remembering of how I was just a young teenager driving up Topanga Canyon with my Aunt to a bluegrass festival. The sounds of banjos in the Santa Monica Mountains and the beautiful outdoors. That is why now I write mostly outside, under an old Siberian Elm tree that is home to a colony of Bumble Bees. Wow! Look Out! They buzz me on occasion and also just float above my head, hovering in a curious way like some natural apis blimps sent out to observe my lonely work!”

    Ingunn Ringvold – Mark’s wife and musical partner in life and music – comes from Norway, the home of Thor Heyerdahl, the explorer of Easter Island and Kon Tiki raft author. She has been singing in public since she was a very young person. Her voice is one of natural beauty. Ingunn is honest, trustworthy and strong. She hears music in her heart and writes emotionally dramatic and moving string arrangements. She plays the Armenian Qanon. She studied with Arax a very well established Qanon master from Vanadzor, Armenia. In Vanadzor she learned how to harness great strength in her performance style. Ingunn also plays the keyboards, djembe, guitar and dulcimer.

    “Composing and arranging for Spokeswoman of the Bright Sun’ was one of the most joyful experiences of my recording career,”  Ingunn recalls, “I’d bought a Mellotron from Stockholm that I was very excited about, every different string arrangement was like a different color in an impressionistic painting, I was able to incorporate from my musical heritage, the hymns and the folk songs of my Grandmother, to my own style of minor and major walking hand in hand. Working with Mark’s original material and unpredictable chord progressions has been the highlight of my musical journey, it’s like I’m standing in the desert holding a gemstone in my hand”.

    All original track recordings were made with a Nagra field recorder. These tracks were delivered to John Schreiner for mixing and mastering. This is the moment a rainbow came into town. John has worked in some of the most important historically speaking and result speaking recording studios in Los Angeles. John worked with Hal Blaine in the past and in the present reinforced his studio sounds in San Clemente, CA with room sounds from studio 3 at Western Recorders. John mixes in groupings and the results are a new step forward in post-modern folk-rock sound exploration. Enjoy the warmth and spaciousness of these outstanding musical mixes!

    Mark Olson was born and raised in Minnesota by a family of mostly farmers and school teachers. He has been involved with musical instruments since the age of twelve and is self -taught for the most part and uses alternate tunings and two-part unison singing followed then by breaking off into harmony in his writing and live performances. He lives now in the California Desert with his wife Ingunn Ringvold. Mark and Ingunn tour off and on internationally almost every year.

    ‘Spokeswoman of the Bright Sun’ by Mark Olson will be released by Red Eye Distribution August 25th in N. & S. America and Australia/NZ and Glitterhouse Records September 1st in Europe 2017 followed by extensive touring.

    Middle of the Road. The rebirth of Eric Gales, one cover and a lifetime of inspiration.

    “One of the best, if not the best guitar player in the world” Joe Bonamassa
    “He is absolutely incredible” Carlos Santana
    “How Eric Gales isn’t the hugest name in rock guitar is a total mystery” Dave Navarro
    “This guy could be the best player on Earth” Mark Tremonti

    “I feel the most free I’ve ever been in life, even more so than when I was a kid…you gotta help yourself man, once you can help yourself you can genuinely help someone else.” Eric Gales

    You want the blues?
    “Unfortunately you have to go through some things to be free”, says Memphis born Eric Gales. “Now, I feel the most free I’ve ever been in life, even more so than when I was a kid”, he opens up. “You gotta help yourself man, once you can help yourself you can genuinely help someone else.”

    The title of his new album Middle of the Road which has been released on 24 February 2017 and is the running theme throughout the record. “It’s about being fully focussed and centred in the middle of the road. If you’re on the wrong side and in the gravel you’re not too good and if you’re on the median strip that’s not too good either, so being in the middle of the road is the best place to be.”

    Middle of the Road is Eric Gales fourth album on Provogue/Mascot label Group (Joe Bonamassa, Beth Hart, Black Stone Cherry, Warren Haynes, The Robert Cray Band, Robben Ford, Eric Johnson, The Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band) and it sees him at his most expressive yet; it is a deeply personal and reflective record that echoes where he is in his life right now and he opens himself up and allows himself the chance to really flourish.

    It’s well documented that Gales was a child prodigy and heralded as the second coming of Jimi Hendrix when he released his debut album The Eric Gales Band in 1991 as a 16 year old on Elektra Records. It was the first of 10 albums on a major label through a blistering career. He has released 14 studio albums in total ahead of Middle of the Road and a host of other collaborations, one of which led him to work with producer Fabrizio Grossi (Alice Cooper, Joe Bonamassa, Billy F. Gibbons, Ice T, Leslie West, Slash, Walter Trout, Steve Lukather, Steve Vai, Paul Stanley, Supersonic Blues Machine).

    Talking about working with Eric, Fabrizio Grossi offers; “I’ve been a fan of Eric since I first worked with him 15 years ago on a project with George Clinton & the P.Funk. His tone and his playing was wicked. Personally and musically Eric grew into a ‘monster’ , a really good one and he’s set on a path of huge success with a ‘taking no prisoners’ type of attitude! I know a very few musicians with such a musicality and Eric is right there a head of the bunch. I hope fans will dig. There’s lots of love, tears, sweat and “truth” in this record, which is what classics are made of. As far what I think about him: Eric is simply Miles Davis’ and Jimi Hendrix’ love child, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.”

    Recent years have seen an array of musicians singing the praises of Eric Gales. Dave Navarro (Jane’s Addiction – Red Hot Chili Peppers) exclaimed that “How Eric Gales isn’t the hugest name in rock guitar is a total mystery”, modern blues icon Joe Bonamassa said he is “One of the best, if not the best guitar player in the world”, whilst Mark Tremonti (Alter Bridge) said in a Classic Rock Magazine interview (Oct 2016) that “me and Myles [Kennedy] were on the bus looking up clips and we ran into some Eric Gales clips and we were just like ‘this guy could be the best player on Earth.'”

    Talking about the accolades he is starting to receive he humbly adds;” It’s absolutely great, I’m grateful to see the recognition for the work that God has allowed me to continue to progress with. It’s beautiful to see the recognition to be finally coming and in the proper way, unlike times where I was engaged into heavy addiction, where it wasn’t such good publicity, but to see it be changed around, it’s a great turn of events.”

    This refers to the time he spent in jail serving at the Shelby County Correction Center in 2009 for possession of drugs and a weapon. Elaborating he adds; “While I was in there all the officers and guards were like, ‘bro you know this isn’t where you’re supposed to be. When you get out of here, go take the world by the horns and ride it all the way out.’ It took a couple of years after but, I’m here.” Whilst he was incarcerated he was able to play shows, for the Mayor, the city and festivals, his own version of Johnny Cash Walk the Line.

    This is where Middle of the Road finds the rebirth of Eric Gales. A new album that has seen him more free than he’s ever been and on the biographic songs you take this journey with him. Along the way he brings in not only a host of guest and collaborators, but also those closest to him; Lauryn Hill, Gary Clark Jr, Eugene Gales, LaDonna Gales, Lance Lopez, Raphael Saadiq and Christone ‘Kingfish’ Ingram.

    It is said that one day the Sun will swallow the Earth and all other planets.

    As it gets closer, the warmth will melt the polar shells, feeding the sea, inciting nature’s rage, finally cursing its revenge upon the Earth and all of its little cities; one by one, being by being. Crumbs of rubbish will carry diseases that have been developed over thousands of years. Countless new forms of animals will be twisting, moving and dancing their way through their insanity – a gift from the endless tons of toxic trash we recklessly harboured. Waves will grow higher than our skyscrapers.

    There will be no place to go; nowhere to hide. Flesh, bone and blood.

    All will be one again.

    Water will be earth; stone will be sea.

    Billow Wood (previously Flat Out) are an Irish four piece who have developed their own unique Pop/Folk sound with a contemporary twist. Originating from Mayo and sharing an eclectic range of musical influences Bríd, Ciara, Harry and Mark are all vocalists and multi-instrumentalists.

    In 2015 Flat Out released their debut EP ‘Half Empty, Half Full‘, which featured four original songs and received fantastic radio airplay both in Ireland and abroad. March 2017 saw the release of their single “Dreamland”, which featured as Joe.ie’s ‘Song of the Day’ and reached #2 on the iTunes World Songs Chart in Ireland. In August 2017 they released their single “Turn Out The Light” which was the official song approved by Pieta House to coincide with the ‘On Your Bike to Save a Life’ initiative, a fundraising cycle along the Wild Atlantic Way. Ciara from the band explained “The message we want to get across to everyone who struggles with their mental health is knowing that they can open up and that there is help out there” – ‘You held my hand, did not let go, you took me back to a place that I call home…there’s no need to turn out the light’.

    This special evening on October 26th in Whelan’s Upstairs will see the band perform songs from their new EP including their next single “Two Doves”, plus many more.

    With gritty sonic depth, Irish songwriter Marc O’Reilly attacks his muse with a bipolar verve that swings from reflection to sheer riotous joy. Backed by the tightest band in Christendom, rare and beautiful songs slam into wild blues fragments and effortlessly back to clean vocal harmonies.

    Marc has released two critically acclaimed albums to date, ‘Human Herdings’ and ‘My Friend Marx’ and has established himself as one of the most exciting artists within the folk/blues genre gaining comparisons with artists such as John Martyn and Bon Iver.

    Marc has toured all over Europe including appearances at major festivals like Glastonbury, Electric Picnic, Beautiful Days, Boardmasters, Shambala and Dranouter. He has also played in the US appearing at the Live in the Vineyard Festival in Napa, California.

    His alter-ego side project with his brother Pierre, the electro-pop duo ‘R’, recently receieved excellent radio support for their debut single ‘Change’ from tastemakers such as Steve Lamacq (BBC 6music), Janice Long (BBC Radio 2) and Paul Mcloone (Today FM) and reached Number 1 on the Amazing Radio Chart.

    As if that wasn’t enough to keep him busy, Marc has also provided vocals on 3 tracks for the new album by MOBO winning act Karios 4tet which was recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios, has received 4 star reviews from Mojo, The Independent and Guardian and has led to the recording of a live BBC Maida Vale session for the Jamie Cullum Show on BBC Radio 2.

    Brass Phantoms are a four-piece indie/post-punk band from Dublin, Ireland. Since forming in 2014 the band has released two EPs, most notably their second EP, ‘City of Wolves’, which has received strong reviews from Hot Press Magazine and the Last Mixed Tape, as well as gaining radio play on major stations such as RTÉ 2fm and Radio Nova.

    Brass Phantoms have played shows all over Ireland, mainly in Dublin. The band has gigged in premier venues such as Whelan’s, the Workman’s Club and the Grand Social, to name but a few. The group has become known for the energy they display in their live performances. In a review from one of the band’s live shows in the Workmans Club, Unsigned and Independent Magazine wrote:
    “They possess a level of ability that so few bands are blessed with and, as such, their approach manages to comprehend a conclusive sense of wanton abandonment in the process”.

    They have been played on some of Ireland’s top radio stations, including RTÉ 2fm, 98fm and Radio Nova, as well as being played by top DJs such as Roddie Cleere, Dan Hegarty and John Loftus.

    Now, Brass Phantoms will kick off a big summer with a headline show upstairs in Whelan’s.

    https://www.facebook.com/Joshua.Burnside.Music/
    https://twitter.com/JoshuaBurnside

    Northern Irish experimental folk songwriter and producer Joshua Burnside is something of a regional anomaly. With a brooding, powerful sound echoing artists of places afar and time long gone, his enthralling craft defies local comparison in striving towards an aesthetic as much as visual as it is sonic. Recorded at home in Lisbane, Co. Down, his new single ‘Black Dog Sin’ is the current distillation of his increasingly unmistakable approach; a fragile, yet ultimately commanding, chamber folk sound gloriously underpinned with unique zeal.

After the release of their first demo ‘I’d Let You Win’, The band received a flood of fantastic reviews including; ‘Flavour of the Month’ and ‘Ones to Watch’ from BBC Introducing which resulted in extensive airplay from BBC Radio 1, RTE and countless others. PORTS rose to prominence in Ireland after an exciting performance at ‘Other Voices’, Derry-Londonderry (when they stepped in to replace Two Door Cinema Club). After their memorable performance, they were asked to return to the Other Voices stage, this time in London’s own Wilton’s Music Hall, joined by Villagers; John Grant; SOAK and Imelda May.

    Drivelight are a four-piece indie/rock band from Kildare, Ireland. In just a few short years, the band have gone from strength to strength. While they can still be found playing a mixture of gigs in and around both Kildare and Dublin city, you’d be hard pushed to find them playing to an empty room. After starting off in pubs and bars to supporting Picture This alongside Danny O’Reilly and Glen Power, these guys are making waves in the Irish music industry.

    Obvious is their first single released from their debut EP Estates. “Estates” is set to release on October 28th. The songs displays what they do best; pure, unfiltered music with the lyrics to match.

    “It’s a very promising debut and needs to be heard loud. It’s no frills rock ‘n’ roll and marks them as ones to watch” – JOE.ie

    “For a debut single Drivelight have done everything right in terms of an opening salvo, the breaks and guitar riffs are executed surgically.” -Remy

    “Bursting with explosively catchy tunes” – Kerrang!
    “Destined for mainstream success” – Punktastic
    “It’s worth getting excited about this trio.” – Rock Sound

    Fangclub – a Dublin-based trio who formed in the neighbouring, remote coastal town of Rush when they were teenagers. Between dropping out of college for those early jam sessions and now, they’ve signed with major Universal imprint Vertigo Records, released two acclaimed EPs (‘Bullethead’ and ‘Coma Happy’), toured with the likes of Twin Atlantic and won over a dedicated legion of fans.

    Celebrating the release of their debut self-titled album, they have announced two shows in one day at Whelans. Matinee show will take place at 3pm at Whelans, Over 14s welcome. They also perform that night on Whelans main stage at 8pm on Bank Holiday Sunday.
    Tickets will go on sale this Friday at 10am from Ticketmaster and WAV.

    Formed of singer and guitarist Steven King, drummer Dara Coleman and bassist
    Kevin Keane, Fangclub have been lauded by Kerrang! for their “explosively catchy tunes”, while Punktastic have deemed them “destined for mainstream success”. With their self-titled debut album due in August and a packed summer of touring, this is one club that’s only going to grow and grow in strength and number.

    Openers ‘Bullet Head’ and ‘Role Models’ kickstart the thread of noise driven by melody, with the break-neck desert-rock ferocity of Queens Of The Stone met by the inescapable hooks of Weezer. ‘Lightning’ and ‘Dreamcatcher’ take the paranoid math-rock that Biffy Clyro chase and pack it with a Seattle-sized chorus – culminating in tracks like the feral rush of ‘Common Ground’ and the pure grunge nihilism of ‘Best Fake Friends’ that destine this band for arenas.
