Cult Called Man – Make It Easy (Official Video) – 1976

Cult Called Man have begun a three-part campaign of retro music videos by taking a step back to the 70’s for ‘Make it Easy’, the first single off their debut album Cult Fiction. The video was shot entirely on Super 8 Film in December of 2016.

In a world where the conventional wants to look like Bieber; Cult Called Man feel that the mainstream attained its perfect image with the likes of Taxi Driver in 1976.

BRIAN KENNEDY ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE OF HIS ESSENTIAL COLLECTION.

brian kennedyBelfast singer-songwriter Brian Kennedy has announced the release of his Double album “The Essential Collection” on Friday, September 30th, 2016. The album is filled with all of Brian’s most beloved songs, re-recorded for a new era of Brian’s career by Irish producer Billy Farrell. 2016 is a challenging year full of positivity for Brian. Not only will he celebrate his 50th birthday but also the 20th anniversary of the original release of “A Better Man” album and regaining full health following his recent battle with Cancer. The album will be available on CD, iTunes plus available on Spotify and streaming services. “Life, Love and Happiness 2016”, the lead single, will be at radio to support the release and get the celebrations started.

Having regained ownership of his back catalogue, Brian set about re-recording many of his most popular songs. Quite a number of songs on “The Essential Collection” are taken from his album “A Better Man”. It’s hard to believe, listening to the songs, that they originally were released in 1996, they sound so fresh with their new 2016 sound. “A Better Man” was certified 3 X Platinum in Ireland, held the #1 slot in the Irish charts for weeks and led to numerous sell out tours of Ireland including a run of 6 nights at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre, then 2 sold out shows at the then Point Theatre now called the 3Arena.

Brian also celebrates his 50th birthday in October and he will celebrate in style with a show at Dublin’s Vicar Street (October 13th) where he will perform the entire “A Better Man” album from start to finish, marking the 20th anniversary of its release. This will be some party; Brian has lots to celebrate!

Brian brings his legions of fans, 32 brand new versions of his songs they love so much:

Róisín O – Better This Way


Róisín O has just unveiled the video for her latest single “Better This Way”, Set for release on Friday 21 October.

Recorded in Iceland, the video was directed by John Broe and filmed by Dara Munnis. It sees Róisín journeying through the awe-inspiring, yet harsh, Icelandic landscapes, mirroring the tone of the song.

Recorded in Eastcote Studios, London, the track was composed by Róisín O, John Broe (Miracle Bell) and CC Brez (Republic of Loose) and produced by John Broe and Eliot James (Two Door Cinema Club, Kaiser Chiefs, Noah and the Whale) with mixing by Ciaran Bradshaw (Cathy Davey, Fionn Regan, Miracle Bell).

The single is part of the studio sessions for Róisín’s much anticipated second record, which will be released in early 2017. With its foreboding lyrics, ominous melodies and haunting blues guitar riffs ‘Better This Way’ seems to be a culmination of the talents of this writing trio.

Speaking about the track O explains; “‘’Better This Way’ is a bit of a departure for me, it’s a step away from the pop vibes of my last single ‘Give It Up’. In a way it’s a throwback to my folk roots but with a lot more darkness and grit than anything I’ve released before.”

This October Róisín O is stepping away from the studio to embark on her limited run ‘Studio Sessions Tour‘ which will see her present songs in more intimate environments across Ireland; “We have been working hard over the past few months developing the new record and I think it’s important to road test the new songs in venues where we can really feel the audiences reaction”. Róisín is taking the studio on the road and the shows will be recorded live in front of a small audience. The tour will showcase never before heard songs from her eagerly anticipated second album as well as reimagined versions of favourites from ‘The Secret Life of Blue.’

‘The Studio Sessions Tour’ will be Róisín’s final performances of 2016 and will cap off a year that has seen her tour Australia, Europe and America, including stand out performances on RTE’s Centenary Programme and JJ Abrams Oscars Party in LA where she shared the stage with Snow Patrol to perform for Steven Spielberg, James Cordon and more, as well as releasing chart hits ‘Give It Up‘ and ‘If You Got Love‘.
