Thewlis | Michael Gillespie | Radio Houston Project

Thewlis are a duo comprising Lifford native Danny McElhinney and Dubliner Cormac Curtis – rekindling a musical relationship first formed with ‘90’s indie rock band The Mahogany Men.
Taking their name from renowned English actor David Thewlis their musical style encompasses alternative rock, punk, folk, and dark-toned country They have released 5 dingles to streaming services. The Boy Behind Bowie, County Level, A One Day Summer, The Manslaughter Ballad, and The One Before The One have been well-received by critics and have enjoyed enthusiastic radio play both at home and abroad.

This Ghostlight appearance will be their first ever live gig outside of Dublin and represents a homecoming of sorts for Danny McElhinney. His first ever musical performance was in the old Balor Theatre in the mid ‘80’s where he also acted for a number of years and he was a member of Ballybofey band Certain Elements in the late ‘80’s.

Donegal born and raised, Singer Songwriter, Michael Gillepsie is a busy man. In addition to his solo output you’ll often find him on Double Bass and Vocal duties for the wildly successful 13 piece Seeger Seesions Revival band

His original material has been described as ‘Midnight Music’ gliding along with touches of Elliot Smith’s finger picked style and early Tom Waits’ forlorn but hopeful lyrical musings interwoven with an engaging story telling touch. His first 2024 release, Red Door, is set for early March.

Radio Houston Project is the experimental solo moniker of singer/songwriter Dylan Robinson (ex-The Heathen Choir & Gorilla Warfare), combining the sounds of space rock and electronic music to create an otherworldly sound inspired by science fiction films.

Dylan is currently hard at work recording Radio Houston Project’s debut single, scheduled to be released this Spring. His Ghostlight debut will consist of both stripped-back acoustic anthems and hard-hitting minimal techno, with a few surprises along the way.
