    SLOW SKIES & OVERHEAD THE ALBATROS – LIVE FROM STUDIO 8 – CAMDEN CRAWL DUBLIN PREVIEW

    Slow Skies is a project beginning in Karen's head, produced by Conal Herron. Slow Skies live is Karen Sheridan, Conal Herron, Patrick O'Laoghaire. Their new EP 'Close' is ready for release on May 4th - 'On the Shore', first single was unleashed on April 1st. Karen sings, acoustic guitar, bass, harmonium. Conal sings, electric guitar, bass, production. Patrick sings, electric guitar, piano.

    Frantic, melodic, epic – three very descriptions that all in some way describe the music of Overhead, The Albatross. They’ve been working on their debut album, so this live session, and their performance at the Camden Crawl Dublin will give us an idea of what to expect from this.

    STEVE MASON – BACK & FORTH

    Once the lead vocalist with the much-loved Beta Band, Steve Mason has managed to blend experimentation with pop hooks. Through his time in The Beta Band, performing under guises such as King Biscuit and Black Affair, Mason is one of modern day music’s unsung heroes. Dan will feature music from various stages of his career in this week’s Back & Forth.
