INTRODUCING // FLAT OUT

20245621_1435142093231475_8125674408651706909_n

 

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.

‘Turn Out The Light’ has a very powerful meaning throughout the lyrics and 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 explains the inspiration behind the song –  “The opening verse of Turn Out the Light immediately delves into a conversation I had with our friend about who we are and how much we have changed. The realisation of how unrecognisable they had become to themselves. Struggling with mental health alone is undoubtedly a scary process. I was taken aback to see someone I had perceived to be one of the strongest people close to me, crumble internally. 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’

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. Also armed with an impressive repertoire of covers, the band like to perform their take on anything from Nirvana to Nancy Sinatra and Elbow to Ed Sheeran.

This month the band won the Ballyshannon Folk Festival Showcase and with their brand new single ‘Turn Out the Light’, co-produced and recorded with Martin Quinn in Jam Studios and set for release 18 August, this year promises to be a busy year for Flat Out.

Urban Wellbeing Launch – Galway


home-1

I was absolutely delighted to be asked to DJ at the launch of Urban Wellbing in Galway.

Urban Wellbeing is a little bit of decadence tucked away on the Tuam Road in Galway City. Luxurious, warm and welcoming this place is a must see.

I had a sneaky peak of the brochure and they have so much to offer under one roof. Everything from Hair and Beauty, acupuncture, pregnancy yoga, Bikram yoga and lots more.

Check out their brochure here.

Guests at last Fridays launch were treated to bubbles on arrival, cold pressed juice and yummy treats courtesy of Combination Cookery.

 

This place is certainly a real treat!

 There are heaps of free parking spaces outside (a deal breaker in Galway city) and you’ve got all of your beauty needs under the one roof! I’m sold! ❤

 

I wish Treacy and Ed the best of luck with their new business, it’s fantastic to see such a fabulous palace like Urban Wellbeing opening up in Galway city.

If you’re in need of a little treat, sit back, relax and let the people of Urban Wellbeing take care of you.
