Dublin singer-songwriter Fiach Moriarty released his debut record So i in 2010 to great acclaim leading Hot Press to state that "instrumentally as well as vocally, So i is exceptionally resonant and richly textured with strings bringing a sense of the sublime to several tracks. Wonderful!" The album was immediately named Album of the Week on Ireland's national broadcaster, RTÉ Radio 1. Upon the release of his debut record, the young Dubliner immediately went on the road with artists of the ilk of Ray Davies (The Kinks), Declan O'Rourke and even appeared as a guest guitarist with Fairground Attraction chanteuse Eddi Reader for her appearance on The Late Late Show. Fiach's record and performances also garnered praise from a host of his musical heroes, including Gilbert O'Sullivan and Paul Brady.
Róisín O is singer-songwriter hailing from Kimmage, Dublin. She released her critically-acclaimed debut album The Secret Life of Blue in 2012, which entered the Irish charts at #21 and has toured with the likes of Lionel Ritchie and Mary Black. In addition, the striking songstress performed in a special Saint Patrick's Day 2013 concert from Áras an Uachtaráin for President Michael D Higgins, alongside performers such as Bono, Glen Hansard, The Script and Lisa Hannigan.
