Barry Jay HughesSinger songwriter Barry Jay Hughes is back with his new EP “This Way Up”.  The new release from the Carrickmacross based musician was recorded and mixed in Westland Studios Dublin in the last few months with the help of engineer Alwyn Walker. Westland Studios has seen its fair share of famous faces down through the years, with Def Leppard, Bryan Adams, Hozier, Sinead O’Connor and Thin Lizzy among the names on their client list.

“This Way Up” is a collection of songs penned by Barry himself along with a cover of Georgie Boy, a song that was written and released by Jack L back in 1999. Another track which found its roots back in 1999 is “Judgement Day” which features on the new EP and Barry is delighted to have recorded after writing it almost 16 years ago. The EP is predominantly pop/rock in sound with subtle elements of traditional and folk music.

The EP will be launched at Iontas Theatre, Castleblayney on 10th April. Support on the night comes from Sinead McNally and special guests. Tickets €12.50 (€10 concession). Show starts at 8:30pm.
