The new edition of the Hot Press Lockdown Sessions' Y&E Series continues tonight – supported by the Department of Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht.
Following a powerful set from Joshua Burnside last night on the Hot Press Lockdown Sessions' Y&E Series, we're delighted to present JC Stewart as our next act – going live on the Hot Press Instagram at the later-than-usual time of 9pm tonight!
With two million monthly listeners on Spotify, an appearance on Good Morning America, and co-writing credits for Lewis Capaldi under his belt, JC Stewart has rapidly become one of Ireland's most exciting pop exports of recent memory. He has continued to build his growing momentum during lockdown – with the release of his new single 'I Need You To Hate Me'.
The new edition of the Y&E Series continues to shine a light on some of the best new and emerging talent that Ireland has to offer in 2020. Following the success of the previous edition of the series, you can once again expect 40 brilliant acts to join Hot Press on Instagram for special live-streamed performances, thanks to the support of the Department of Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht.
With the immediate future of the live music industry remaining uncertain in the face of the global Covid-19 pandemic, the Y&E Series aims to support Ireland's remarkable new generation of artists by delivering 40 paid gigs to 40 acts over 40 days.
Watch JC Stewart tonight, September 10, as part of the Hot Press Lockdown Sessions' The Y&E Series, supported by the Department of Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht – live on the Hot Press Instagram (@hotpressmagazine) at 9pm.
Take a look at the upcoming line-up below:
September 11: NATHAN MAC
A compelling new presence on the homegrown indie-pop scene, former circus performer Nathan Mac has launched his career with the first two instalments of his Start Of Something Blue project – which is set to feature over 24 collaborators, including musicians, photographers, illustrators, directors, performers and more.
September 12: EVANS JUNIOR
Tipped as one of our 'Hot For 2019' acts, Nigerian-born artist Evans Junior has emerged as one of the most compelling talents in the Irish hip-hop boom. Following the release of his acclaimed Organised Mess project in 2019, he continues to build up his ever-growing following with 'Know Better', 'Party' and 'Long Run'.
September 13: CHERYM
Since bursting onto the scene with their 2018 release 'Take It Back', Derry pop-punk trio Cherym have won fans everywhere from Belfast to Berlin. As well as plenty of airplay from the BBC and RTÉ, the band picked up the Oh Yeah Contender Award at the NI Music Prize last year.
