Dublin-born Róisín O is one of the most promising new artists to emerge from the competitive Irish music scene in recent times. In a relatively short timespan she has shared both stage and studio with some of Ireland’s leading artists, showing an expressive voice full of warmth and depth, and proved that combining a unique songwriting style with a commitment to hard work is still the best way to progress.
Róisín O released her debut album ‘The Secret Life of Blue’ in September 2012, and went straight into the Irish Official Album charts at number 21.
‘The Secret Life of Blue’ was recorded in the Studio Black Box in France with Grammy Award-winning producer David Odlum (The Frames, Gemma Hayes, Josh Ritter).
Josh Hoke is a Midwestern man of origin, the son of a preacher, singing songs like sweet tea on a Sunday afternoon. With guitar in hand and more than a touch of soul, his voice invites you into the sacred, rustic space of tired hope, or along the crisp precipice of wailing anticipation. Gritty and fresh as the day you were born, and calming as a kindly breeze over fields of new mown hay on a warm summer night. He remains a man of hopeful honesty, acquainted with grief, fervently singing into that guttural longing for good life and luster. He currently spins a honey web of sweet melody in Portland, Oregon.
Josh's new album, Ghosts and Glory, is a debut collection of his songs and invitation to join in the same longful gaze. The passion and visceral experience of his live performance has been captured in the studio in a more concentrated, focused delivery. Songs of heartbreak, hope, love found, and love lost, weave a rich tapestry in which you will find solace and a space in which to both take a break from all your worries and contemplate the varied nuance of life.
