One such song 'Mount Street Bridge' tells the story of a young English soldier marching to meet his maker in inner city Dublin while 'Confession' provides us with a mirror imager, giving us an insight into an Irish Volunteer preparing for battle.
Having spent the last few years homing his craft on the live circuit in Ireland, Eoin Martin has been called Ireland's answer to Newton Faulkner andPureM have nominated him for the Best Male Solo Act Award.
"As far as guitars go, nothing beats the acoustic guitar when it’s played expertly. Eoin Martin, from Offaly, is such an expert. He plays so beautifully that he cannot fail to impress. His riffs would rival Metallica and his use of harmonics is exquisite but restrained – it would be easy to overdo it. Martin is clearly a master of the instrument. He also impresses with that other instrument, the voice. Put simply, he sings his heart out. The lyrics are intelligent and well crafted and they round off what is a gorgeous collection of songs. It will be interesting to see where Eoin Martin goes from here. Whatever he chooses to do you get the feeling that he’s sure to succeed. An exciting prospect. Verdict 6/6" – MRU Magazine

While homeless himself, Tommy KD has also raised money for the Dublin Simon Community via the release of his rap ‘Homeless’.
As a teenager Evelyn sang and played the Dublin music circuit in places like Toners and The Baggot Inn with contemporaries such as Leo O'Kelly of Tir na Nog and Freddie White, No Buckets & Sleepless Knights. For a short while she sang backing vocals for Sonny Condell also of Tir na Nog. She diverted into Fashion for a time but in recent years returned to the stage when she began to sing with Mia Pasons as 'Soulong Sister'. Good crowd reactions to her own songs encouraged Evelyn to write more and she has built an increasing repertoire of original songs.
Evelyn's original collection of songs in the album OVERDUE REVIEW cover a diverse range of topics that mix socio-political commentary with reflective insights into the emotional merry-go-round we experience in our lives. The music does a bit of genre-jumping, mixing country and traditional influences with contemporary folk rock that blend to keep the sound fresh and unique.
