Welcome to the May issue of Unsigned And Independent. We have an incredible issue that is jam packed with some of the best up and coming artists around. Our cover features one of the most promising bands on the Irish music scene – The North Sea. We caught up with their frontman Eoin Kenny ahead of the band’s eagerly awaited debut album. Speaking of albums, we also have the band who have recently topped the Irish album charts – HamsandwicH. We caught up with Niamh and Podge from the band ahead of their upcoming gig in The Olympia Theatre at the end of this month. We also have interviews with Grounds For Invasion, Wozniak and the third part of ‘Our Friends In The North’ sees us sit down and talk with Paul Cox about CavanTV. This month Dave Beech talks with False Advertising for The Manc Tank. There are two interviews with Joe Loftus as this month The Scouse House talks with The Sundowners and The Lockstocks.
Bringing everything back home Scene & Heard sees us catch a number of fine acts on the live circuit in Dublin with Saucy Sundays and The Ruby Sessions making up the content for us in that regard. Our co-op network has recommended our usual high standard of artists in the form of albums, EP and singles for review and we also have an excellent 4X4 with our editor’s selection this month.
We would also like to officially welcome Marky Edison to the team. He is an excellent addition to an already fine roster and he will be taking over the SONAR column each month.
