“Woe!” is the debut single from Dublin singer/songwriter Billy Treacy. Billy is well known around Dublin’s Temple Bar as the lead singer in the Ha’Penny Heads who have had a residency for the past three years in The Ha’Penny Bridge Inn. Brought up over a pub in Dublin’s Inner City, Billy served his music apprenticeship listening to a vast array of music and songs played and performed in the pub.
It was later in Chicago that he first started playing guitar, writing songs and opening for various different Irish acts like Sharon Shannon and Stockton’s Wing on tour there.
“I feel so strongly about the message in “Woe!”. I begged and borrowed to get the song recorded and released. I wrote it in a couple of hours one day this summer as a way of venting my anger, frustration and helplessness at all that is happening in Ireland at the moment. I know that there are thousands of proud people out there who feel the same way and I hope they will identify with my song.” Billy Treacy
“Woe” will be available for download from iTunes from this Friday, 16th August.
