Your host on the evening is Keiron Campbell-Black from ‘The Amazing Few’, resident American ambassador. Expect surprises with special guests and great music, of course.

Gin N’Juice
– Ireland’s first Hip-hop covers band fronted by the powerhouse Jess Kav. They’ve been ripping up venues all over town since they formed last year. Lauryn Hill, Missy Elliot, N.E.R.D, nothing is off limits.

Mob Fandango
– The original Dublin 9 piece Mob Fandango are back after a year of pursuing side projects. Winners of Dublin City Soul Festival’s prestigious Rising Stars 2009, the Mob are fresh from recording in Windmill Lane with new material following 2010’s critically acclaimed ‘Dig’ E.P.

Rebecca Sinnamon
– Rebecca Sinnamon is a rising star on the jazz scene in Ireland. She holds a BA in Jazz Performance from Newpark School of Music and has studied under Ronan Guilfoyle, Jay Clayton, Dorothy Murphy and Norma Winstone among others. Rebecca recently did a tribute to Chet Baker in a packed NCH. Expect standards sung expertly and effortlessly, backed up by some of Ireland’s finest jazz musicians

Raven Aflakete
– Hailing from San Francisco, California, Raven is plying his trade in Dublin and is one of the leading names on the Irish spoken word scene. Whether fronting Hip-Hop crew Mixtapes From the Underground or providing thought-provoking beat poetry (think Gil Scott-Heron in 2013), Raven is guaranteed to shock, make you cry and then laugh, but most importantly, make you think. No description will do him justice. Give this man a microphone

New Single from Cat Dowling | “Come On”

Cat DowlingCat Dowling releases her new single, “Come On”, on 19th April. The single is the first from Cat’s forthcoming album, “The Believer”, due for release in early May.

Cat previously fronted alphastates, pioneers in guitar-heavy electronica who released two critically acclaimed albums, “Made from Sand” and “Human Nature”.  In 2010 she wanted to write and record following her own lead and knew the moment had arrived to create and perform under her solo guise. This departure led to Cat recently signed an international and US publishing deal.

“Come On” is a mournful pop song tinged with haunting melancholia that all the while manages to animate and uplift. The animation video was directed by award-winning Irish animator Marc Corrigan.  (Benny Smiles “Moonlight”, Ham Sandwich “Ants”)

You can catch Cat live at The Grand Social, Dublin this Friday 22nd March.
