Described as a band within a band, hailing from Ireland and fronted by the Wexford born songwriter, the group is a force for Creane’s vision of modern Americana/Folk-Country with a traditional Irish influence lending to its unique brand.
The core of the band is made up of Creane (acoustic gtr and vox), long term friend and producer Donal Byrne (mandolin) and Byrne’s two brothers Lorcan (drums) and Cillian (bass). Outside of this, the band has friends or “honorary members” who come in and out depending on, or to suit the occasion. This extended musical family of eclectic instrumentalists includes violin, trumpet, dobro, banjo, and bazouki and it is for this reason the band has chosen to represent itself with the name “The Changing Band” with each tour offering a different perspective on the music.
In 2011 the band recorded their first album, entitled “Tommy Black and the Twelve Days of Lucy” and spent the next year touring their native Ireland along with Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands. The band received an honorary mention in the finals of the International Unsigned Song writing Contest for their single “All For You Baby”, which received national airplay in Ireland, and were included in the “Sounds of Ireland” CD Compilation in UK Music Week Magazine.
