In 2020, Jake Hurley – AKA Local Boy – was tipped as one of the Hot Press Hot for 2020 Irish Acts. Described as "fusing elements of laidback hip-hop, R&B and smooth funk with off-kilter indie sensibilities", this is an exciting artist to watch.
The rising musician's music has been featured on works like the Normal People television series and a number of official Spotify playlists. With over 12,700 monthly listeners on the Spotify platform and shows coming up at Workman's Cellar this September, fans have a lot to look forward to.
Ahead of the release of his next single, 'Get Up (Out The Bed)' tomorrow, listen to Local Boy's most recent track: 'Crazy Stupid Love'.
