The teenage frontman of fledgling Dublin act INHALER might have a world famous rock star for a father, but Eli Hewson and the band are fully determined to go their own way.
Sitting over free pint glasses of iced water in a quiet corner of a Dublin hotel bar, Eli Hewson (second from left) and Josh Jenkinson (far right) of Dublin rock foursome Inhaler are trying to work out how many gigs they’ve played since first forming at school in 2016.
Coincidentally, today marks the first anniversary of the release of their debut single ‘I Want You’, but the fresh-faced teens still don’t have a huge amount of live experience.
“We haven’t really done that many gigs,” Eli admits. He extends his hand. “Hold on – let’s count. We’ve done three in the Grand Social, two in the Button Factory and one in the Workman’s.”
