“Absolutely brilliant” – Darren Cleary, In Colour, 2XM

Sonically speaking Regina Spektor has dinner with Amy Winehouse and they all grab a cuppa with Frank Zappa on the way home. Great White Lies sound resides in the alley on the way back. Choral music, jazz, and funky soul permeate through their inventive sound, peppered with surreal imagery.

An irish band of jazzers, & soulful voices. Their highlights include performances at Gúth gafa International Film Festival, headlining Galway Fringe Festival, Stendhal Festival of Art, Allingham Arts Festival, a nomination from Pure M magazine for "Best Ep" and winning VAI Song of the Year, 2015, international tours include Canada and Los Angeles and national tv coverage on RTE 1 for Bloom Live.
