BRIAN DEADY has been declared Ireland's "soul star" by The Irish Times; "our favourite act in Ireland” by Nile Rodgers of Chic; while The Guardian has called his music as "stirring blues and gospel".

Deady first came to attention with his single 'Clap Both My Hands', which became one of the most played Irish songs of 2016, and made No 1 in both the Irish r'n'b singles charts and the Spotify UK Viral charts. The Corkonian has since released two albums - Interview and Non Fiction.

Earlier this year, he released the EP, About Last Weekend, created over the course of a weekend. "I set myself the challenge of writing and recording an EP from scratch with the intent of releasing on Monday," he said. "It really pushed me to get out of my own way and let creativity happen. Somehow I managed to pull it off. Written and recorded on my own, with my dog Lucas, in my cave house in the high desert plains of Southern Spain."

Brian Deady plays the Róisín Dubh on Sunday November 24 at 8pm. Tickets are from www.roisindubh.net, the Ticket Desk at OMG Zhivago, Shop Street, and The Róisín Dubh.
