with Lavengro |DK |Neptune M |Arbuckle & McCormick
Lavengro are a 5-piece from Derry. They’ve been making waves nationally with their energetic, synthy and melodic live pop performances described as a fusion of Ed Sheeran and Maroon 5. Appearances at festivals such as Electric Picnic, Sea Sessions and Youbloom have won over fans across the country with their brand new single ‘Think’ playlisted and played regularly on iRadio, 2FM and Today FM
D.K. is a rapper/singer/songwriter who first caught our eye with a rousing performance at our Hucksters Ball bash on Boxing Night last. He’s been writing music for 15 years and is soon to release his new EP ‘Life and Pain’ with a second album ‘Medicine Man’ also in the works.
We first saw Neptune M. perform on the undercard of Joel Harkin’s EP launch here at The Balor in February and it’s no exaggeration to say that she blew us away. An original artist from Letterkenny her influences include Jeff Buckley, Nina Simone and Bjork. Her voice – at once sweet, intimate and angelic, then powerful and impassioned – demands attention while the soft electric guitar that typically accompanies it provides a perfect foil. She is currently working on her debut EP due for release later this year.
From Derry comes an exciting new Folk duo Arbuckle & McCormick – Robert Arbuckle (guitar/vocals) and Emily McCormick (keys/guitar/vocals/). Although only forming the project in December 2017 the duo have already have made a lasting impression in the local scene, augmenting a number of live gigs with the recent release of their live session with Dunno Films ‘Live at the Boho Barn’.
