Three of Ireland's most promising songwriters are set to perform in Dublin next week.
Blaithin Carney, Our Cousin Paula and Cat Lundy are set to headline Trio – a special night at Lost Lane, Dublin on Friday, January 17, showcasing the high calibre of female songwriters on offer in Ireland.
Each artist will perform their own headline set, backed by a session band featuring Robbie Malone on bass (David Gray), Jake Curran on guitar (Niall Horan), Dave Hingerty on drums (The Frames, Kila) and Cian Boylan on keys (Sinéad O'Connor).
The unique gig brings together three artists on the cusp of greatness, sharing equal billing – with running order decided by a draw of straws five minutes before showtime.
Over the last year-and-a-half, Blaithin Carney has been making waves with her relatable brand of indie-pop – featuring emotionally raw lyrics that explore the complexities of modern life. Recent successes include four Top 5 hits in the Irish singer-songwriter charts, with her debut single 'Rome entering at No.1.
Taking inspiration from '60s pop and blues, Cat Lundy released her debut album, 9 Lives, last year. Influenced by love and heartbreak, the project was produced by Ger McDonnell, who has worked with the likes of U2, Kasabian, The Cure and Martha Wainwright.
Dubliner Our Cousin Paula, meanwhile, has impressed the likes of Andrea Corr, Bill Whelan and legendary producer David Foster with her quietly intense vocals and genre-defying sound.
Doors for the Trio gig open at 7.45pm. Tickets are €15, and are available from lostlane.ie and at the door on the night.
