Pia Dunne has been receiving positive attention of late from prominant performers and musos alike. Comments such as;
“The girl is a talented songwriter with a timeless voice, reminds me at times of Tracey Thorne from Everything But The Girl. Definitely one to watch!” ~ Jerry Fish
“Pia Dunne’s EP is a wonderful collection of soulful, blues and folk songs.
From the 60s-tinged vibe of “Place of no returning” to the heart-felt
vocals of “Crows”, Pia’s persuasive songwriting shows she has the
potential to become a major voice in the Irish music scene.” ~www.dublinjazz.ie
Pia has a such a soulful voice and the musicians and arrangements are second to none! Can’t find anything to criticise !! “
~Lorcan Ennis (Verge Management)
‘Pia Dunne’s new EP is a delight to my ears. With Pia’s smooth voice and original melodies she delivers a beautifully crafted EP. Looking forward to hearing the full album.’
~ Ciara Buckley RTÉ Pulse
The songs are an eclectic mix of soul, jazz and alternative pop, which echoes Pia’s musical backround. With a degree in Jazz Performance, a decade of experience as a songwriter and as front woman of World Fusion band Que Pezon! (Hailed by the Irish Times as “an exciting Dublin based band”) Pia has regularly toured the festival circuit including Electric Picnic, Body and Soul and the Life Festival. She has performed in Vicar street, The Button Factory, The Sugar Club, Wheelans, The Village, Bewleys Theatre, The Bleu Note, Le Circ/Sweeney Mongrel’s to name but a few, but is proud to return to The Workman’s Club for the launch of this very special debut EP.
Never afraid to challenge and bend genres in her songwriting and singing styles, this performance will bring you on a rollercoaster ride from heartbreaking ballads, cheeky reggae and funk to feel good acoustic pop. Pia Dunne and The Eleusians are not to be missed!
Support on the evening will be by Dayo and the Swingfolk, a Dublin based outfit currently promoting their debut album “For whom do you do?”. As their name suggests, their foot-tapping, rhythmic, ‘Rootsie’ style will guarantee a great night’s music. For more information see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8OM1swcrbg
