Eve Belle

Eve Belle is a young singer, songwriter and chronicler of sorrows from deepest Donegal. Her songs and stories are imbued with an uncommon world-weariness seldom found in writers of such tender years.

In Eve Belle’s songs, someone is always leaving; or is about to be left. Her gaze is unblinking, she says: “I try to create emotional portraits of my own experiences through my lyrics. I think the best songs come from the most earnest emotions, so I try to put minimal filters between what I feel and what I say in the song.”

In 2016, One of Eve Belle’s early songs, the aptly-titled, achingly beautiful ‘Too Young To Feel This Old’ came to the attention of Irish independent label Rubyworks. Around the same time, her evocative cover of Coldplay’s ‘Violet Hill’ found favour with Chris Martin & Co., and was widely shared online.

On signing to Rubyworks, Eve worked with London-based producer Fred Cox, best known for his work with Billie Marten and Lion Babe, and Simon Aldred of Cherry Ghost and Birdy fame. The first fruits of their studio labours is her new single ‘Boy From The Blue’.

Eve says of the song: “‘Boy From The Blue’ was inspired by that sense of surreal giddiness that comes with being infatuated with someone new, when the lines between physical things and emotions become a bit blurred and there are symbols everywhere, that we like to read meanings into.”

Drawing on influences as diverse as Julien Baker, Cigarettes After Sex and Conor Oberst, Eve Belle has recently played live in Ireland with Frightened Rabbit and Rodrigo y Gabriela and enjoyed festival appearances at Electric Picnic, Indiependence and Sea Sessions.

Eve Belle has opened for Beth Orton her Irish tour, and was the special guest at Wyvern Lingo’s sold-out album launch show in Dublin.‘Boy From The Blue’ is available now on all good download and streaming services.

Vinnie is currently busy in the studio recording his album. His debut single Slow Burning Fire was released in June 2017 with Hot Press Magazine and has recently made joe.ie's song of day. The track is also getting regular radio play on RTE's 2fm. The single is available across all major platforms. Vinnie also just released another single and video in March 2018, This Old Coast.

FOXTALES

The full origins of this band are somewhat lost to the annals of time. This is most likely due to memory loss from partying in first year of college but some research has been done via looking through embarrassing Facebook pictures and going through old text messages translated by guess work. It is fact that two of the band members met in Coláiste Stiofáin Naofa , cork city while dossing from a lecture on Law. There was also a third member ,who was part of the early stages of “foxtales” ... which was known as “Boots&cats”,who was a poet and a lunatic . Badly named and badly organised the band went from pub to pub looking for open mic nights to earn free pints of beer which didn't generally help with performances but made for good laughs and general cheer. The band had some success on the streets of cork city after the hour of 12 am busking to rambling crowds of students who may have just been throwing coins at the trio to damage instruments and facial features... the facts are not clear.
After college the trio disbanded and didn't see each other for a few months which was for the best as tensions had run high due to the constant changing of arrangements during performances. Gemma went back to karaoke, kyle got a gig as a trad backing guitarist and Cathal resided in dingle town as a minstrel and sometime troubadour. more to come ...

JAMES & THE NORTH SHORE - MEAGAN MAY

James & The North Shore released an 8 song debut via Factotum CO titled “Lover? I Barely Know Her”. Recorded live from the floor, the album displays the band at their most honest and raw. James Bryan’s stark lyrics and delivery are reminiscent of a Leonard Cohen or Jason Molina. The North Shore provide the backbone that guides the ship. Sometimes they veer into wildness, other times into calm. Cohesively the group form a folk sound with sub-Celtic influences and a working class ethos that recalls Billy Bragg.
The group toured across Canada in the fall of 2017 and are touring Europe in May/June 2018
