Event Details

Willie J Healy – Nothing much happens in Willie J Healey’s songs, most of which document his everyday life and dreams, but his debut album is rarely dull. Partly that’s because of the 22-year-old singer-songwriter’s vocal range – one minute he sounds feral, the next half asleep – and partly it’s because of his pithy turn of phrase. “The people that you like the least are the ones who love you most,” he sings on Somewhere in Between, one of the standouts, a languid, ragged blues track with a lovely sax solo. When his way with words deserts him, Healey’s appeal wanes, but his frisky lo-fi rock has a homespun charm. – Guardian

whenyoung – whenyoung are Aoife Power (Vocals/Bass), Niall Burns (Guitar) and Andrew Flood (Drums) who originate from Limerick in Ireland but are currently based in London.
First meeting as teenagers, sneaking into the only indie bar of their city in Ireland, they bonded over cheap vodka and The Velvet Underground. Soon after, Niall moved to London, with Andrew and Aoife quickly following, and here they began writing songs together.
