Description

Kevin Fowley writes in the third person and is only delirah to announce his upcoming debut release Oh, Mongrel.

To release the hound he is putting on an intimate show in The Cobblestone with the help of some very sound heads.

Support comes in the form of O T W A K (Once There Was A King), a trio that are creating some of the most mesmeric and enveloping music in Ireland today. They are lush and lovely and you can listen to them here

K E V I N   F O W L E Y

Kevin Fowley is a Franco-Irish finger-picker, word-mumbler, singer-songwriter and hyphen-enthusiast.

Having developed a style of guitar playing influenced and informed by folk music, he began performing as a solo act in 2017.

During a hiccuping of appearances at Irish festivals, including the Arbutus Yarns stage at Body & Soul, and a number of performances in his native Dublin, Fowley impressed listeners with his dexterous guitar style and literary lyrics that tiptoe along the line between poetry and prose, inciting comparisons to Nick Drake and John Martyn.

T H E   E P   C A L L E D   O H ,  M O N G R E L 

Oh, Mongrel was recorded in Dublin in 2015. Ross Chaney (Subplots) produced and arranged the record, as well as playing a variety of instruments on the tracks, which features Patrick Cummins-Tripodi on basses, Sam Comerford (Thunderblender, Insufficient Funs, Umbra) on alto sax and clarinet, Anna Clock on cello, and Frank Fowley (Da) on fiddle.

Tadhg Lipton recorded and engineered the record at Tuff Lip studios in Dublin.

Oh, Mongrel is turbulent and tender, structured and circular, ordered and stormy.

The songs on this record are about skin and kin and burning trees; about duality, duplicity and indecision, maybe.

O T W A K (Once There Was A King)

Once There Was A King is John Flynn (voice/guitar/flute), Ultan O’Brien (fiddle) and Patrick Cummins (banjo). The trio began playing together whilst touring as part of the larger seven-piece outfit, Skipper’s Alley. Collectively, the members of the trio share a line of thinking that has led them to a creative process that is spontaneous and improvisatory by nature. They carve out their own experimental and imperfect path guided by the traditional tunes and songs they play. There is always an element of chance in the creative process. There is no over-arching, wordy theory binding the music; it is spontaneous, moment-music.

Look at them make music and begin to fancy all three of them simultaneously over here.
