The Frank and Walters It’s been an eventful few years for The Frank and Walters with the release of their latest album Songs for the Walking Wounded and a European tour in celebration of the 20th anniversary of their second album Grand Parade in 2017. 2018 marked twenty five years since their UK Top 20 seminal hit After All. The track found a whole new audience following a classic television moment on the RTÉ/BBC production The Young Offenders.

Lisa O’Neill is an Irish songwriter like no other. Her roots may be sourced in folk and traditional music but her work opens up a landscape beyond any settled sense of genre. Her work is filled with tension and emotion, contextualizing themes of love, loss, heartache and sorrow today through referencing tales from the past with beauty, honesty and defiance. Junior Brother is an Irish alt folk singer playing sometimes humorous and sometimes heady tunes. Strange stories, poetic and arcane, unfold with reckless abandon upon an idiosyncratic guitar and foot tambourine accompaniment.

Macy Gray occupies a rare space in the canon of modern music. That unmistakable rasp, unshakeable grasp on soul, and funky spirit ensured her status as a 21st century icon since her arrival with the triple–platinum How Life Is in 1999. Selling over 25 million albums globally, winning a Grammy Award and two BRIT Awards, collaborating with everyone from Ariana Grande to Galactic, and enchanting fans all over the world, her voice has consistently resounded throughout pop culture. Eternally enamored and enthralled with her voice and presence, a devout fan base that transcends genres, generations, and creeds celebrates her work. She released her tenth album, Ruby last year, a bold mix of genres and collaborations. With special guests Hypnotic Brass Ensemble.
