Dublin singer Fiach Moriarty returns with his second album “The Revolution” which was released April 17th 2015. Lauded by the likes of Chris White of The Zombies “I was rendered speechless by his voice and songwriting. There was nothing I could say to this artist. Lyrically and musically he is one of the best singer/songwriters around.” Paul Brady has said: “Fiach Moriarty is one of Ireland’s most talented singer-songwriters with a musical sophistication rare in the genre”. The time is now for the revolution to begin and Fiach Moriarty to claim his place as one of Ireland’s most impressive singers and songwriters.
Fiach’s second album, ‘The Revolution’ was heavily influenced by his childhood memories of taking to the streets of Dublin to march for various causes in the 80’s together with his family. The result is an album that tackles subjects such as The 1916 Easter Rising, World War 1 and Los San Patricios (the Irish brigade in the 19th century Mexican Army) yet is filled with a wide breadth of catchy hooks, clever lyrics and beautifully crafted songs.
Since the release of his debut record “So I”, Fiach Moriarty has toured through countless venues in his home country of Ireland, as well as Europe, Australia and North America. This heavy duty work ethic has paid off, garnering praise from a host of musical heroes of his such as Gilbert O’Sullivan and sharing the stage with Ray Davies of The Kinks and Fairground Attraction chanteuse Eddi Reader. The record was produced by former Edwyn Collins collaborators Simon Quigley and Peter Meighan and features a guest appearance from Meteor award winner Wallis Bird.
