Corner Boy to Release ‘Moira (Under The Pale Moonlight)’

Winter 2012 in the railway town of Lennoxville, two hours east of Montreal, Canada. Mick D’Arcy sits down guitar in hand & begins to explore the process of emigration from his native Ireland. A collection of songs are born forming the early identity of Corner Boy’s folk/roots rock sound. Travel & live shows across North America ensue but time catches up. D’Arcy returns home to his native Wexford in the South East of Ireland, songbook in hand.

Attracting the attention of local musicians; Cian McGovern (Accordion, piano), Michael Sutherland (Drums), Matthew O Brien (Banjo, guitar) and Corner Boy is formed

Touring extensively in; Ireland, UK, Europe, North America, Asia and the Middle East their music receives widespread national/international radio and television acclaim. All 4 of their early singles (‘Ghost Town City’, ‘True North’, ‘Morning, Morning’ and ‘Untie The Noose’) reach #1 in the Irish iTunes folk charts with their single ‘Morning, Morning’ also charting at #1 in the Dutch world music iTunes charts. They feature at Ireland’s largest music festivals including; Sea Sessions, Indiependence, Hard Working Class Heroes, Knockanstockan, Electric Picnic.

Their latest single, ‘Moira (Under The Pale Moonlight) was recorded at Grouse Lodge Studios, Co. Westmeath in September 2017 by Grammy Award winning producer Ted Hutt (Old Crow Medicine Show, Dropkick Murphy’s). Released on Friday 21st September, ‘Moira (Under The Pale Moonlight)’ is an anthem of fallen love.
