Introducing: A Mix of New Irish Artists #8

Here's a little round-up of artists that have entered my social network in the last number of weeks! If you're impressed by what you hear make sure to befriend or 'like' the artist!

Sarah Red

First up is Dubliner Sarah Red. I love the sound of Sarah Red. Her style of alternative folk brings to mind Ani DiFranco or Janis Ian comparisons. In this song 'Misdirected Fire' I love the double bass, vocals and lyrics.

Valentino is Dead

Drogheda band Valentino is Dead are releasing their debut album this year with the lead single being this rocking track 'This City Tonight'. It's available for a limited time for free!
Karen Alice Dunbar

Cork's Karen Alice Dunbar writes sweet little radio friendly catchy songs like this piano based love song. Very impressive indeed!
Rory Bowens

Originally from Meath but now based in Galway Rory Bowens is a singer songwriter of great potential who writes quirky songs like this!

Dublin rockers Madra are in the very early stages of their career but have a pleasant indie rock sound at the moment. With a few years of gigs and a bit of work in the studio and the band could come through! Here's a good demo to listen to!
Fergal Cox

Athlone's Fergal Cox is a singer-songwriter with great passion for a good song. The following track is well written and includes some superb backing vocals and male/female harmonies.

Rebecca Gresty

Hailing from Co. Wicklow with a 10 piece band in tow Rebecca Gresty is in the process of releasing a huge sounding debut album entitled 'Mad at the Seems'. It's a sound that has it's place firmly in the mainstream!
