First up we’ve got six-piece indie-folk band Runabay
With uplifting melodies, beautiful harmonies, and complex instrumentation, their music will appeal to fans of artists like José Gonzalez and Fleet Foxes.
Runabay are a six-piece indie-folk band from the Glens of Antrim and Belfast. They have been writing, recording and performing music together since 2014, creating a soundscape rooted in place and shaped by the beautiful local landscape and coastline.
Through the means of atmospheric melody and beautiful harmonics, Runabay bring their ‘Snowpatrol-esque’ style of folk roaring forward.
Their music is the kind to reflect upon!

Second up we’ve got the wonderful and extensively talented Ryan O’Shaughnessy.
Hot off his very successful Eurovision endeavour, with self penned track ‘Together’, Ryan is about the embark on his first ever Irish nationwide tour with AMA music agency. The tour begins this September and will continue right up until the end of 2018.
With this, Ryan will also release his much anticipated brand new track ‘Civil War’ which touches on the many heartfelt nuances and the effects that wartime can have on the ordinary people of a society.
This release is set to be accompanied by some very vivid video content and is intended to work alongside humanitarian group ‘Amnesty International’.
Watch this space for more details for both tour dates and upcoming releases this Autumn.
Last but by no means least we’ve got rising star - Irish born - LA based, Rap-R&B artist SEAMUS.
SEAMUS is no stranger to the artistry and craft that is writing, with an extensive background in poetry and with influence direct from the writings of famous Irish writers such as W. B. Yeats.
He is eloquent in projection and quite the showman in his own right. He plans to continue to mix the raw style of indie rap with a flare of commercial finesse. If you like full on creativity and a sweet beat you’ll want to pay attention to this young man as he aims to brings his unique mix of American Rap flow and Irish connection to a venue near you.
We tip him to make a big impact over the coming years and we agree his track ‘Poise’ is a great place to start.
