This Weeks News March 18

eileenGogan_holding_bigEileen Gogan is launching her debut album this week after spending years fronting and guesting for many Dublin pop bands. – The launch is Thursday March 24 in the Grand Social

Her powerful, unaffected singing style has been compared with Sandy Denny and Kirsty McColl but her sound – a blend of glistening guitar and vintage keyboards – draws on a range of influences such as Richard and Linda Thompson, Neil Young, Can, Patti Smith and Yo La Tengo.

Her song writing blends astute observations with razor sharp lyrics and a highly attuned pop sensibility. This collection is an enthralling and winningly confident debut from a songwriter who is in full control of her craft, Eileen has sung for some of Irelands finest bands, (The Would Be’s, The Revenants, The Drays).

The Spirit of Oberlin is the first ever collection of songs penned by Eileen herself.
