2 million YouTube hits in a week last year for a song they arranged, SEO LINN now announce their new original single – D’Aon Ghuth Amháin!

Seo Linn D’Aon Ghuth Amháin – new original single out Nov. 14th ’14.

 

Edit_03

Keith, Stiofán, Jenny, Daithí, Kevin, Conor and Cathal (Seo Linn) are multi instrumentalists with a mission playing modern trad with a large pop/dance influence meshing strong straight forward percussion beats and dance melodies with trad instruments.

Last year they clocked in over 2 million YouTube hits in just over a week with their stunning Irish version arrangement of TG Lurgan V Avicii – Wake Me Up and a whirlwind winter of TV appearances and international tour dates

D’Aon Ghuth Amháin means Of One Voice and is Seo Linn’s new single out November 14th 2014

The song describes how thousands of voices united and singing in unison are more powerful and lasting than individual voices which stand-alone. It underscores how this coming together of people and the uniting of voices is the way which Ireland has, is, and will continue to safeguard her beautiful native language, An Ghaeilge, against extinction.

In this way An Ghaeilge, which is a fundamental part of the Irish heritage and culture, has survived through almost impossible historical circumstances, because when the times got tough the Gael have always come together ‘of one voice’ to ensure the continuity of the language. The lyrics of this song acknowledge this great Irish achievement, and tell us to continue to birth and inspire new life for our native Irish language, as we shape the future of our country and native tongue – encouraging creativity and singing together in the language shaped by the Irish landscape, culture and mindset – ag canadh, d’aon ghuth amháin.

2014 has been busy for Seo Linn with a brace of sold out shows all over the country and an album in production preceded by the single “D’Aon Ghuth Amháin”.

Seo Linn are:

Keith: Djembé and lead vocalist/harmony.

Stiofán: Guitar and lead vocalist/harmony.

Jenny: Flute/whistle and lead vocalist/harmony.

Daithí: Keyboard and mandolin and lead vocalist/harmony.

Kevin: Button accordion & Backing vocals.

Cathal: Rhythm guitar/bass

Conor: Percussion

Seo Linn D’Aon Ghuth Amháin – singil nuachumtha ar fáil ar an 14ú Samh. ’14.

Ceoltóirí il-uirlisí is ea Keith, Stiofán, Jenny, Daithí, Kevin, Conor agus Cathal (Seo Linn) a bhfuil sé mar mhisean acu ceol traidisiúnta nua-aimseartha a sheinm a bhfuil tionchar mór pop/damhsa ann, ag nascadh snagbhuillí láidre agus tiúineanna damhsa le huirlisí traidisiúnta.

Anuraidh fuair siad breis agus 2 mhilliún amas ar YouTube i mbeagán de bhreis ar sheachtain lena leagan iontach Gaeilge de TG Lurgan V Avicii – Wake Me Up, agus bhí fuadar fúthu i rith an gheimhridh ar chláir theilifíse agus ar thurais idirnáisiúnta.

Is é D’Aon Ghuth Amháin an singil nua atá ag Seo Linn agus beidh sé á sheoladh ar an 14ú Samhain 2014

Insíonn an t-amhrán go bhfuil na mílte glór, aontaithe agus ag canadh le chéile, níos cumhachtaí agus níos buaine ná glórtha aonair ag canadh astu féin. Dearbhaíonn sé gurb é an teacht le chéile seo agus aontú na nglórtha an bealach a bhí, atá agus a bheidh ag Éire lena teanga álainn dúchais Ghaeilge a chosaint ón díothú.

Ar an dóigh sin atá an Ghaeilge, ar cuid bhunúsach í d’oidhreacht agus de chultúr na hÉireann, tagtha slán trí chúinsí stairiúla a bhí beagnach dosháraithe, mar ariamh anall nuair a tháinig an crú ar an tairne tháinig na Gaeil le chéile ‘mar aon ghuth amháin, chun buaine na teanga a chinntiú. Tugann liricí an amhráin seo aitheantas don éacht Éireannach seo, agus deir siad linn leanúint orainn a bheith ag cur bunús agus beatha nua inár dteanga dhúchais Ghaeilge agus sinn ag múnlú todhchaí ár dtíre agus ár dteanga – ag spreagadh na cruthaitheachta agus ag canadh le chéile sa teanga atá cruthaithe ag tírdhreach, cultúr agus meon Éireannach – ag canadh, d’aon ghuth amháin.

Bliain chruógach ab ea 2014 do Seo Linn a raibh sraith seónna lán go doras acu ar fud na tíre agus albam á chur i dtoll a chéile acu a bhfuil an singil “D’Aon Ghuth Amháin” mar réamhtheachtaí aige.

Baill Seo Linn:

Keith: Djembé agus príomhamhránaí/armóin.

Stiofán: Giotár agus príomhamhránaí/armóin.

Jenny: Fliúit/feadóg agus príomhamhránaí/armóin.

Daithí: Méarchlár, maindilín agus príomhamhránaí/armóin.

Kevin: Cairdín & amhránaíocht chúnta.

Cathal: Giotár rithime/dord

Conor: Uirlisí Cnagtha

Eoin Glackin “Rain Finally Came” his new single out November 7th.

Eoin Glackin “Rain Finally Came” his new single out November 7th.

Eoin Glackin shows why he is Irish music’s most thrilling emerging talent with the release of his single, “Rain Finally Came” November 7th, 2014 on iTunes. Eoin regards “Rain Finally Came” as a pivotal point in his musical career – the record where he really found his path.

  • “Rain Finally Came” is the title track of Eoin’s second album, which was released in early 2013. This year he followed the album up with the release of a four-track EP “Pretty Girl” that coincided with his first UK release in September. The feedback from the UK has been all he hoped for, getting the airplay he wanted and great reviews across the country.

 

  • This year has seen Eoin sign to international publishing house Eagle I who also represent John Lennon and Yoko Ono music publishing.

 

  • Eoin was invited to play the new Coffee House sessions by Huw Stephens of the BBC in the UK. (Coffee House Sessions’ Music Advisor is BBC Radio 1’s “Introducing” host Ally McCrae.) Starting off in Bournemouth and visiting 24 UK Universities, it finishes in the beautiful campus of St. Andrews in Scotland. His hard graft has picked up a substantial student following from this and Eoin will head back again in November for more shows in the UK.

 

  • This newfound audience has helped Eoin’s video for “Rain Finally Came” reach over 100,000 views on YouTube. The single was originally released in 2013 and is being re-released as Eoin now has an army of new fans and admirers, many of whom have seen the relentless tourer who “lives to play live”.

 

  • Eoin‘s music has earned him shows at Ireland’s biggest festivals and support slots for the likes of the legendary Joan Armatrading. In July this year Waterboy Steve Wickham joined Eoin at Sea Sessions, which was one tick off the bucket list!

 

  • Growing up on Dublin’s northside, the young Eoin became infatuated with the art of passing on stories through music; a passion that led him to the songbooks of Dylan, Springsteen, The Beatles and many more of folk and rock’s great ones, much to the amusement of his classmates, who were wrapped up… in the ever divisive “Oasis or Blur” argument.

 

  • Self-taught on the piano and later the guitar, he began songwriting and busking at the age of 15, dipping in and out of various school bands.

A storyteller at heart, his first album dealt with hope (and fear), his second looked at resilience (and adversity), the album carries on the theme of the human condition, in the style of contemporary folk tales with a rock edge.

Eoin will head to Europe early 2015 where he will release the album “Rain Finally Came” with H’ART in Germany, Austria and Sweden followed then by a tour.

Gabby Young and Other Animals announce one off show at the John Field Room, National Concert Hall Dublin, Monday November 24th 2014

Gabby Young and Other Animals announce one off show at the John Field Room, National Concert Hall Dublin, Monday November 24th 2014.

Gabby Young and Other Animals returns as part of her ‘Fear of Flying Tour’. Following a triumphant 2013 concert at the Dublin Fringe Festival, Gabby performs her first concert of 2014 in Ireland. This concert will feature the Gabby Young Trio performing a unique arrangement of Gabbys songs, stripped back for the intimate surroundings of the John Field Room.

Gabby Young and Other Animals are an eccentric eight piece British pop band, bringing together gypsy, folk, rock and jazz. Fronted by flame-haired eccentric English singer/songwriter, Gabby Young, the band brings a fresh new perspective to music that has crowds in Europe, the USA, Japan and Australia jumping for joy and now brings her back to Ireland.

The official video for their new single “Fear of Flying”, it’s pretty beautiful… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DFGhOZQ0ugo&list=UUqXZBP_Kqu5DF9PdVeUXvJw

Early Life

Gabby Young was born in Bath, and spent her early life in Wiltshire, surrounded by the lush countryside surrounded by the Marlborough Downs. Her imagination was able to run riot, and she and her sister were fond of hosting impromptu plays and concerts from a very young age. She was on track to become an opera singer until Jeff Buckley and the jazz greats inspired her to switch teams.

Thyroid Cancer
Gabby’s unique perspective of the world around her is inspired as much by imagination as real events, but when thyroid cancer threatened to take her classically trained voice at the age of 22, she got serious about recording her stories. Using her recovery time to pen her melodies, Gabby took in global influences to fuel her heartfelt emotion, which shines through her beautifully haunting songs. ‘I feel blessed rather than afflicted,’ she says simply.

The Other Animals

Gabby then formed her existing band, who complete the magical musical fairground we know today, using a wide range of instruments, most notably trumpet, violin, trombone, piano and accordion. Young’s avant-garde fusion of globally-influenced folk combines Balkan brass, jazz and swing in an aural antiques shop from the future to produce what has been affectionately dubbed Circus Swing by those who realised there was no existing genre to encompass Young’s sound.

Albums

‘One Foot In Front of The Other’ (Gift of the Gab Records) released in the UK on 2 June 2014, is the follow up to the critically acclaimed 2012 album, ‘The Band Called Out For More.’ It has already gathered a great collection of 4-star reviews from the likes of The Guardian, Financial Times, Daily Mirror and numerous music publications.

Fashion and Crowdfunding
Her ‘if I can balance it on my head, I’ll rock it’ approach to dressing-up inspired Stylist and Artrocker to hail her as a fashion icon. It’s all part of the same DIY, fan-engaging ethos that saw GYOA fund her releases through crowdfunding sites. Most recently she raised an amazing £9,000 in just four weeks to help record the latest album. In style and business, as in music, Young is one of life’s collectors and upcyclers.
