CRY MONSTER CRY, the folk-rock duo of Richie and Jamie Martin, are on tour to promote their debut album Rhythm Of Dawn, including a show upstairs in the Róisín Dubh tomorrow.
Inspired by the music of Bob Dylan, The Everly Brothers, Van Morrison, Ray Charles, and Simon and Garfunkel, as well as Irish folklore and storytelling, the brothers are also eclectic in their choice of instruments, using banjos, mandolins, acoustic guitar, synthesisers, electric guitars, African percussion, and chamber orchestras.
Speaking about the new album, Richie says: “Recording a debut album is a dream we have both always had and we wanted to do it on our own terms. We ended up with a theme running throughout the whole album and we treat it like a cyclical piece of work. You are supposed to have come full circle by the time you reach the end.”
The album was recorded at Studio 2, Malahide, and was mixed by Abbey Road veteran engineer Guy Massey (The Beatles, Ed Sheeran, Manic Street Preachers ).
Doors are at 9pm. Admission is €10. See www.roisindubh.net
