Robert Delaney is a singer/songwriter/lyricist from Dublin, Ireland with influences of folk, blues, jazz & soul. Upon the release of his critically acclaimed debut album, ‘Rising Tide’, his songs have featured on popular Irish Television shows; ‘Don’t Tell The Bride’, ‘Fade Street’ and ‘Room To Improve’. After two years spent touring and writing in Germany, Robert has returned with the first single, That Faithless Love, from his second album, Numbers (due for release Autumn 2017).
His resume to date also includes composing of the title track for Irish feature film ‘Between The Canals’. Robert has also written lyrics for a number of Irish and UK acts of varying genres, has published a book of lyrics and has been a feature on national Irish radio throughout 2012 and 2013.
Robert was writing poetry before he ever picked up a guitar and that love of lyricism shines through his songwriting. Following the release of his taster solo EP – ‘Lilies For My Sweetheart’ – Robert Delaney’s debut album, ‘Rising Tide’ is available now from Tower Records, HMV and iTunes. This is an album about life, about love, lost and found, with soul searching lyrics and carefully crafted meoldies which draw the listener in.

With a debut (English + Irish version) single release in October 2016 Padraig Jack has received national radio play on RTE Radio 1 with John Creedon and Fiachna O Braonain, RTE Raidió Na Gaeltachta, BBC Radio Ulster as well as making his TV debut on TG4. His accompanying national tour took him around Ireland including opening for the Saw Doctors and he received two award nominations for NÓS Music Awards and was shortlisted for the prestigious Pan Celtic music award. 2017 sees him bring his music to more audiences nationally and internationally with his second single Can’t Find My Way Home due for release in June.
Born and raised on a Gaelic speaking island of 800 people 10 miles off the west coast of Ireland, bilingual artist Padraig Jack retired from playing music at age 9 before picking it up again in his early 20s. In the meantime, he grew up and observed life developing a passion for finding various levels of intrigue in the seemingly mundane – a characteristic which he would later explore through his songwriting. While his music is strongly influenced by his musical family, if Padraig Jack’s West-of-Ireland, Celtic, Adult Contemporary music style was a fine wine, James Taylor would oversee the production, the bottle would be constructed by Paul Brady and the glass designed by Don Henley. It would be best served in a room with Crowded House playing in the background.
On stage, Padraig Jack likes to twist logic for fun in between songs. If he wasn’t a musician or a computer scientist he’d be a comedian…he thinks this is because he wants to make you laugh and relax so as to open up to be moved by his music.
