I Draw Slow
Dublin roots band, I Draw Slow, has been garnering praise around the globe since the release of their Top 10 selling album, Redhills in 2012. Now their new album, White Wave Chapel, is all the buzz at home and overseas with their unique sound, bringing together Irish tradition with modern Americana while staying rooted in the old time style of Appalachia. Their impact abroad is redrawing the map for these Irish/Americana songwriters.
The UK press describes I Draw Slow as “American top league equivalents,” destined “to blow the opposition away,” drawing favorable comparisons with Gillian Welch and Alison Krauss. While filling the airwaves on tastemaker stations at home and abroad, the band has been winning fans on both sides of the Atlantic, playing legendary festivals such as Celtic Connections, MerleFest, Pickathon, RockyGrass, Grey Fox, Wintergrass and more.
I Draw Slow is a five-piece outfit comprising vocals, guitar, fiddle, banjo, and double bass. Holden siblings Dave (guitar) and Louise (vocals) have been writing together for two decades. In 2008 the pair teamed up with violinist Adrian Hart, clawhammer banjo player Colin Derham, and double bassist Konrad Liddy to form I Draw Slow.
“With White Wave Chapel, their best album to date, under their belt, it seems a matter of time before I Draw Slow will dominate the global folk scene.”
–Peter McGuire, Huffington Post UK
"For an all-acoustic group, I Draw Slow sure do have a fully realized sound. May we recommend "Valentine," "Grand Hotel" and "Don't She Run."- The Bluegrass Situation
"It’s as gritty as it is beautiful" CMT Edge
“Their lyrics are evocative and imaginative, yet remarkably in an entirely American idiom and vernacular – no Gaelic transposed to fit the hills and hollers. Songs like “Bread & Butter” and “Hide & Seek” resonate rhythmically and lyrically…”
“Their writing is skilled, rich and wonderfully mature…the album is a delight…”
“I Draw Slow is a high-powered bluegrass band from Ireland, who discovered the genre while busking in Australia. Perfect for an all-American musical mish-mash of Appalachian Mountain music, blues, jazz and traditional country! Hear for yourself on White Wave Chapel.” FOLK ALLEY
