INTRODUCING // PADRAIG JACK

20690282_10155381257485673_4008680766238473576_o

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.

INTRODUCING // STOLEN CITY

Stolen city release their DEBUT music video to their song “Faces”. 

“Having started out as two duos and a marching band drummer from various parts of Dublin, These five young energetic acoustic rock lovers decided to merge together to form Stolen City.  Taking the lead with his vocals is singer-songwriter Sean McGrath followed by his right-hand man on stage David McCabe who gets the crowd going with his quirky sense of humour and epic mandolin skills. Lead guitarist Jordan Higgins is often the main focus on stage swinging his guitar behind his back while continuing to play, Taking the Bass is sound engineer/songwriter Adam Treacy, On the drums, is Ian Baily who is known for his solo which leads to all the lads hitting the floor to ensure all eyes are on him”.

“We see a big disconnect between bands and their fans nowadays, It’s as if once people get famous they can forget where they came from, We want to make sure that never happens to us and hope if we lead by example people will follow”.  

INTRODUCING // FOX VICIOUS

Formed as a collective of songwriters, childhood friends Shay, Kristam and Jake began working remotely with the shared goal of writing the songs they wanted to hear.

Hundreds of emails and flights on budget airlines later the Irish trio have crafted a sound that mixes sugary hooks, playful melodies and lush, chilled instrumentation.

Fox Vicious release their first single “Worlds Apart” on all major digital platforms.

Two years in the making, this single marks the start of the release cycle for their debut effort – [FVEP].

Further singles “Battleshakes”, “Crystal Eyes” and “Paper Planes” will be released digitally throughout Summer 2017.
