Ben Shannon, Doc Millar, Keenan O'Meara

Doc Millar--Dublin IR   

Over the past two decades Seán AKA Doctor Millar has released a series of critically lauded Albums, earning him over and again the title of “Irelands greatest songwriter.”  His latest work combines his love of American music with contemporary world sounds and transcendent harmonies.  Sean has in the past, been nominated for Solo performer of the year at the Heineken/Hotpress (Irish “Rolling Stone”) awards, alongside Van Morrison and Paul Brady.

 

Keenan O'Meara--NYC

Keenan O’Meara creates a narrative for moments that are often overlooked in a sonic weave of affliction and melancholy. With a voice that feels like eternity, O’Meara speaks from a place of vanquished emotion, while guitar strings pick at harsh realities.
