Live Loud Music Irish Autumn Tour 2017
Independent label Live Loud Music announces an Irish tour of their artists Nally, Shane Hynes, Peco and Thermal And A Quarter including special guests from Friday 27th October to Sunday 5th November 2017
Performing live again after a three year hiatus, Nally a.k.a Sinead McNally is looking forward to getting back out on the road for this inaugural label tour.
Her debut EP release ’10 000’ in 2011, resulted in national TV and radio appearances and a special performance at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, due to the success of her single release ‘Green Eyed Monster’.
Nally is highly regarded for her credible ability of writing jingles many of which include the Irish tours and transport company ‘Matthews’ and her most recent accolade; winner of the Fresh Supermacs Jingle Competition.
The Dundalk native loves the challenges that song writing can bring and she has used this to her advantage many times. Her first ever entry to a competition in 2004 saw her narrowly missing out on representing Ireland in the Eurovision that year.
She has also penned the seasonal track ‘Nearly Christmas’ that has garnered her a worldwide fan base as the track is performed at Christmas events and used as a background VT track, both here and abroad every year.
Next year sees the release of a new EP and Nally will be performing tracks from this yet untitled EP alongside her impressive back catalogue.
Music industry terms such as ‘rising star’ and ‘one to watch’ would certainly apply to Offaly based, multi-instrumentalist Shane Hynes.
To describe him only as a singer-songwriter may not actually do him justice as he’s in a very different league.
He delivered his rock/pop/country self-titled debut EP in July of this year and he’s fast becoming a firm favourite on the live circuit around the midlands.
Shane’s musical background started in childhood and he has continued to nurture this into the full-time artist he is today.
His unique guitar playing style (a right-handed guitar upside down with the strings in reverse order) has garnered him a big interest and an increase of fans to his gigs.
In 2016, Shane was the recipient of the ‘Best Male Newcomer’ award at ‘The Leinster Entertainment Awards’ in Kilashee House in Naas. To win the award and perform on the night has added a significant boost to his profile and he is reaping the rewards of this achievement on his musical journey to date.
Shane carries an impressive catalogue of tracks and musical styles to please any set of ears.

From Valentine Black front man to reputable solo artist, folk man Peco is no stranger to the live Irish and UK music scene.
Described by many as a poet and a melody maker, his style also veers into rock, pop and Americana, much to the appreciation of his audiences, old and new.
He is releasing his debut EP ‘And So I Arrived At The Start’ on Friday 20th October.
The first two single releases from this EP ‘Safe Haven’ and ‘Self Help – A Beginner’s Guide’ have received valid praise from both industry insiders and fans.
Performing at home and abroad in his own right or as part of a festival line-up, Peco’s profile has gained great momentum the last few years.
The Kildare native has been a finalist in the prestigious ‘USA Songwriting’ competition and ‘The International Acoustic Music Awards’.
Having established himself as one of the contenders for best Irish male artist, he continues to receive regional and national airplay on stations here in Ireland and further afield.
Not many bands can say they’ve been together over twenty years, but then not all bands are Thermal And A Quarter; a trail-blazing rock unit from Bangalore, India.
Band members include Rajeev Rajagopal, Leslie Charles, and Tony Jason Das with award winning Bruce Lee Mani at the helm.
They describe their music as ‘Bangalore Rock’; an eclectic mix of genres with a sensibility that is uniquely global while retaining the essence of this South Indian city that is now firmly on the world map of culture and technology.
With seven albums and multiple award victories to boot, they’re on their way back to Ireland to join forces with their fellow label artists for this inaugural tour.
Throughout the last decade they have toured all over their native India, Asia, USA, Europe, UAE, The UK, Ireland, the Maldives and back again.
They’ve opened for some of rock’s biggest acts like Greg Howe, Megadeth, Machine Head, Wayne Krantz, Slash, Guns N’ Roses, Deep Purple and Jethro Tull and have won several awards for individual musicianship as well as overall contribution to Indian Rock.
Front man Bruce Lee Mani has an impressive list of accolades for his accomplishments as a singer and a musician. These include twice winning the Rolling Stone Magazine ‘Guitar Player of the Year’ Award in 2009 and 2012 and Leon Ireland ‘Vocalist of the Year’ Award in 2011.
As a live collective, TAAQ deliver an unforgettable, immersive musical experience.
From sold out clubs to arena-size venues, TAAQ’s stellar musicianship, hard-hitting lyrics, and fluid improvised style make every gig unique and make them an unstoppable force to be reckoned with.
