David Gray was adopted by Ireland in 2000 when his career defining album “White Ladder” was number one for six weeks, and became the bestselling album ever in Ireland. The album also went to No. 1 in the UK Albums Chart, two years and five months after its original release and spent a total of 151 weeks on the chart. David Gray has achieved over 12 million album sales worldwide, won two Ivor Novellos, a Q Award and received BAFTA nomination for his soundtrack work on Amma Assante’s 2004 film A Way Of Life as well as two Brit nominations and a Grammy nomination.
David Gray, who is releasing his much anticipated new album later this year, gave his Irish fans the opportunity to hear some of his new songs when he toured intimate venues around Ireland before Christmas and filmed television “Other Voices” in Dingle.
Their kind of Rock N’ Roll music is haunted by the ghost of country and blues – take the good-time revolutionary spirit of MC5, simmer it down to the sounds of Crosby Stills Nash and Young, add some rough-edged Eagles of Death Metal and you are somewhere near the sonic nugget that is The Hot Sprockets.

The propulsive singles “Family” and “Animals” have already hit the radio airwaves and hooked listeners, and now, Irish quartet The Cast of Cheers are getting ready to unleash their first proper album, released June 15th on School Boy Error/ Co-operative Music. Of course, it would be a bit of a misnomer to call this their debut – that would be “Chariot”, the album the band recorded themselves in 3 days, which they subsequently put up on BandCamp for free. It received over 150,000 downloads and netted them a nomination at the Choice Music Prize, sending their star into rapid ascendance – their next single, the blistering “Family” saw the band championed by the influential likes of Zane Lowe, Fearne Cotton in the UK and more, while their follow-up single “Animals”, due out this month, has neatly repeated the same trick.
2013 saw the release of the band’s sophomore album, ‘Embark, Embrace’. Scattered (for the first time) with vocals on themes of escape and renewal, the album’s optimistic title is inspired by the band’s collective decision to put career and college pursuits on the back-burner, to focus on writing and touring more fully than ever before. The result is an album far more hopeful and jubilant-sounding than its predecessor, preserving the band’s recognisable melodic interplays and technical prowess while pushing towards the new and unexpected on levels of both theme and sound. Enemies have handled a large chunk of recording, designing and releasing ‘Embark, Embrace’ themselves, strengthening their ‘do-it-yourself’ reputation while stepping tangibly forward in terms of their own music.
Her independently released debut album, aptly titled Has an Album, was launched in August 2009 and sold out throughout the country displaying her popularity not just in Dublin but nationwide. Her second album Same Cloth Or Not, came into the world on Song Seeds Records in October 2013. The album was recorded in a beautiful rented cottage in Wicklow in the winter months with David Kitt producing and Karl Oldum engineering and includes her band Stina Sandstrom (vocals) and Mossy Nolan (bouzouki) and some wonderful interventions from London-based string duo Geese (Emma Smith & Vincent Sipprell).
