Our Little Secrets, the Dublin-based band whose debut album was released on 7th May, are the collective efforts of chief composer Rhob Cunningham and a merry band of like-minded cohorts.
Rhob Cunningham has spent the last few years playing songs and breaking E strings in every venue imaginable in Ireland, to anyone who'd listen. This incessant touring has led to supporting roles including Lisa Hannigan, Bell X1, Cathy Davey, Mundy, Mick Flannery and the late John Martyn, as well as backing vocal duties on Hannigan's debut album 'Sea Sew'.
Rhob, along with a selection of truly musical humans, ensconced themselves in to various studios, basements, attics and kitchens in Wicklow and Kildare, not leaving until the basis for a full length album was in the bag. So now, some moons later, it's all ready to go and time to set it loose on some fresh pairs of ears.
The album features the strumming, hitting and plucking of Cormac Curran (Villagers/Cathy Davey), Ross Turner (Jape/I Am The Cosmos), Shane Holly (Jennifer Evans & The Ripe Intent) as well as sporting the considerable talents of the likes of Lisa Hannigan, Cathy Davey and Jenny Lindfors and assorted family and friends. Produced by Gavin Glass and mixed by Keith Farrell (The Duckworth Lewis Method) and mastered in the late Liam Clancy's studio in Dungarvan.
Our Little Secrets will be supporting The Villagers on their tour in May, followed by their own national tour in June.
