“A master singer-songwriter” – The Irish Times
“Heart tuggingly good” – Sunday Business Post
Renowned producer, multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Gavin Glass is one of the busiest men in Irish music, having released four critically acclaimed solo albums and producing and playing on countless others over a career spanning twenty years. He has toured and played alongside Lisa Hannigan, Mundy, The Stunning, Jerry Fish, Declan O’Rourke, Chas ‘n’ Dave, Clarence Clemons, Garth Hudson, and more. His latest album Sunday Songs released in June 2015 has been enjoying great critical and commercial success with heavy rotation on Irish radio, and has put him at the forefront of an Irish music movement of country, folk, and Americana dubbed Eirecana.
“His songs, filled with emotion, turmoil, fear and hope make an instant connection with fans.” – The Irish Independent
“…undoubtedly some of the best lyrics that almost any listener will have heard.” – Fatea Magazine, UK
Irish born singer-songwriter Eoin Glackin is one of Ireland’s most promising rising stars. Having already toured across the UK and Ireland relentlessly over the past few years, including at Electric Picnic and Sea Sessions, as well as supporting acts like Joan Armatrading, Shovels & Rope, Beth Orton, and The Darkness, he possesses a real knack for live performance and pairs quality songwriting with a true talent for storytelling in his original Folk ‘n Roll style.
