Austra @ The Button Factory

Austra @ The Button Factory November 22nd with Support Diana.

“Austra have a knack of picking nifty support acts for their tours. Grimes was one before she got as big as Eircom ads and now Diana are in place, still fresh in our ears from Iceland Airwaves. The majority of the crowd are in early enough to see them and the newer, smaller Button Factory really makes things more intimate, even without the sold out crowd all in the door. ” – Simon Roche – State.ie

Laura Mvula @ The Olympia

What an absolute pleasure to shoot the sold out Laura Mvula gig @ The Olympia last weekend, one truly amazing show.

“She chats, giggles and even manages to sing with a wide smile during the more uptempo tracks sitting behind her red keyboard. Earlier tracks like ‘The Morning Dew’ and new track ‘Let Me Fall’ are both received well by the crowd. The latter consisting of live violin, double bass and keys with a sound inspired by African rhythms – Karen Lawler – State.ie

Alt – J ∆ at The Olympia Theatre

Photos from Alt – J’s ∆ SOLD OUT gig at The Olympia Theatre on May 3rd.

“We are just a little shy of 12 months since Alt-J last played in Dublin’s fair city. Back then the likely lads from Leeds were in the Academy 2 and pimping their debut long player, An Awesome Wave. Now the boys are back in town doing a victory lap, the aforementioned album having won the Mercury Prize and topped many end-of-year polls (including State’s). This time round sees the venue elevated to the hallowed environs of Dame Street’s finest Victorian Music Hall, the Olympia. This was a highly anticipated show, having sold out long ago and the originally generously priced tickets were being offered for two to three times their face value by unscrupulous touts on the t’internet.” – Philip Dunne (state.ie) Read the full review here.

Photoshoot : Unwinding Cables

I had the pleasure of shooting the awesome Unwinding Cables in Cork on a cold frosty morning earlier this year. They are an Irish Afro-Punk band formed by frontman Zelen and drummer Ovi  with the former’s twin brother Zen completing the line-up. Last night the boys released their EP in The Pavilion Cork, They’ll also be playing in Camden Crawl this year, 3rd-5th May.

One of my photos of the band were featured in State’s Faces of 2013 Magazine and Digital Combination. View the gallery and read the magazine below.
