Friday, September 3: LAUREN ANN
Following the release of 'Don't Take It Out On Me' and 'How It Works' in 2020, Lauren Ann returned with 'Angel Eyes' earlier this year. Although she's just 18-years-old, the Northern Ireland artist draws inspiration from the likes of Nirvana, Pixies, No Doubt and Suede – allowing her to craft a sound that feels both fresh and nostalgic. Following her lauded set at Stendhal Festival last month, Lauren has firmly established herself as a remarkable rising star.
Saturday, September 4: ROBBIE MONAGHAN
After kicking off his career at just 12 years old, busking on the streets of Galway, Robbie Monaghan is rapidly earning a reputation as a star-in-the-making. In 2019, the young singer-songwriter made it to the semi-finals of X Factor: The Band, where Nicole Scherzinger joined him on stage for his rendition of The Pussycat Dolls' 'Don't Cha'. The video of the performance has since clocked up over 1.4 million views on YouTube. His Y&E Series set coincides with the release of his new single, 'Replaying The Moments'.
Monday, September 6: SKY ATLAS
Unafraid to push at the boundaries of their musical horizons, Sky Atlas have marked themselves as one of the most original emerging acts in the country, with a string of lauded singles. The hotly tipped band is made up of recent BIMM graduates Lughaidh Armstrong-Mayock, Louis Younge, Danilo Ward and Ryan McClelland. Ahead of the release of their highly anticipated debut EP, they've offered a promising taste of what to expect with 'Stone' and 'Threads'.
Wednesday, September 8: CURTIS WALSH
Having clocked up over 15 million streams of his debut EP, Breathe, Curtis Walsh is a serious star-in-the-making. Increasingly drawing creative inspiration from the likes of Bon Iver and Jon Hopkins, the Dublin artist continues to expand his approach to songwriting and production – as showcased on his latest single 'Picture Perfect'. Stay tuned for more music on the way later this year...
Thursday, September 9: MATTHEW HARRIS
After establishing himself as a remarkable force in Irish music through collaborations with Malaki, Matthew Harris has stepped into the spotlight as a solo artist this year. Drawing influence from the likes of James Blake, Brockhampton and Arlo Parks, the Dublin-based artist also releases his production-based work under the moniker CHAMELEON – including a recent collaboration with Lucy McWilliams on 'YOU KNOW'.
Friday, September 10: JESSICA HAMMOND
Fast becoming one of the most promising new voices in Irish music, Jessica Hammond has enjoyed a major few months – with the release of two solo singles, 'Champagne' and 'Video Call', as well as a collaboration with Kyle Meehan, 'Guilty Of Your Love', which has already clocked up nearly 1.8 million streams on Spotify alone. The Belfast-based artist has also worked alongside some of the UK's top producers and writers, and has earned a coveted spot on the Paragon Records roster.
Saturday, September 11: CARRIE BAXTER
Waterford's Carrie Baxter has been widely tipped as one of the most thrilling emerging forces in Irish music, following the release of her soulful debut EP, Placebo, last year. Now, after a selection of acclaimed singles and collaborations, the London-based rising star is set to return with her follow-up EP, What Now, on October 22. 'Something In The Water', the first single from the eagerly anticipated anticipated project, is out now.
