She Shook Me – €1.00 EP

Hello!

To celebrate a great year (which included our marriage in October) we’ve decided to sell our She Shook Me EP (5 tracks) for €1.00 on our Bandcamp page – www.barryfinnimore.bandcamp.com 

We’d be delighted if you’d download a copy, consider it our wedding present!!

We recorded it at Orphan Studios in Dublin, with Gavin Glass producing.

We were/are immensely proud of our work on it and it paid off with lots of airplay and good reviews, particularly for the title track, She Shook Me.

Pure M awards – Best Male Solo nomination

Good evening!

Things are still quiet chez moi as I have the lurgy of all lurgies, but a bit of news: Barry has been nominated for a Pure M award – Best Male Solo Act.

Tis a long list, in fairness, but it’s nice to see his name up there, first award nomination.

Whoop 🙂

She Shook Me

Hi guys,

It’s been a while since I posted, but I’m happy to report that our EP, She Shook Me is now available online at itunes and bandcamp.

We’ve been lucky to have gained some great support. The track has been played by the BBC on their Introducing show, the Irish Times gave us a mention, TXFM have given us a few spins, as have Dublin South FM and 8 Radio.

We’re really grateful for everyone who’s playing, listening and buying tracks.

If you’d like to support us, please do!

Woop!!

Picture This is one of my favourite sites and Facebook pages and when they said they were looking for bands/musicians to feature, my hand shot straight up.

They very kindly wrote a lovely feature about us on their site –

Hello Chaps

Hello,

After a bit of a hiatus, here’s a round-up of what’s been going on…

Recording:

Barry and I went in to Gavin Glass’s Orphan Recording Studio at the start of March to record our 2nd EP, She Shook Me.

My sister came in to help out on piano and we had a very productive 2 days of recording and have 5 songs that we can’t wait to share with you.

Recording was a blast, we felt more confident this time round and had a better idea of what we were at. Gavin was wonderful too, his input was invaluable and he had a great attitude… and patience!

We’re hoping to release the EP in June and we’re lining up gigs and other fun stuff.

St. Patrick’s Day:

Also, Barry and I were volunteers at this year’s St Patrick’s Festival, on Sunday we were assistants at the Big Day Out on Merrion Square. The highlight of my day was the Imaginary Menagerie, captained by Dr Longitude, it was great fun and so creative.

On Monday we took part in the parade!! We carried Discover Ireland banners in front of the Macnas pageant. It was so much fun and great to be involved in, I’d recommend it and will definitely sign up next year. 🙂
