Hyland and Brunnock
Niamh Hyland and Michael Brunnock met on a date five years ago and the rest is history.…Well, actually they met when Niamh was introduced to Michael by her date.
Both Irish, both singer/songwriters living in New York City for a decade, performing on the Lower East Side on a regular basis, how could they not know each other? It was a lively first meeting in a Brooklyn beer garden. Needless to say the poor lad Niamh was on a date with didn’t get a word in…
A few days later, they decided to give writing together a whirl. Their first attempt, "Live To Love” has become the title track of their new release. Singing harmonies and tight unison melodies came naturally to them and are the hallmark of their new material - a collection of songs, that were fueled by copious quantities of Barry’s Tea and McVitie’s Hobnobs.
On October 25th, 2018 Hyland and Brunnock released their debut album "Live to Love, a six-song collection that covers topics from the #metoo movement to environmental issues, to love in all its capacities. Produced by David Hopkins (former band member of LiR) in Las Vegas. David has also produced Mark Stoermer of The Killers and The Brummies in the last year.Recorded and mixed by Robert Root (The Killers) at Battleborn studios in Las Vegas.
Niamh Hyland, originally from County Leitrim, Ireland, released her first album as the lead singer of the rock band Lily Sparks (2009). She is the Co-Founder of Artists Without Walls, an organization encouraging collaboration and support of Artists across disciplines. She is also a TEDx veteran, with an inspiring talk on why we must keep “Resurrecting Your Dreams”.
Michael Brunnock, originally from County Meath, Ireland, recorded with Little Palace and has several solo albums under his belt. Michael was awarded the Di Donatello award (an Italian Oscar) for his performance of David Byrne and Will Oldham's songs including ‘If It Falls, It Falls” for the movie, This Must Be The Place (2012). He continues to tour, write and perform music for film and theatre.
Both Niamh and Michael currently live in NYC and plan to perform through 2019 in the U.S. and Europe.
