The Fynches

An unnamed project began over a decade ago in Ireland by young, budding songwriter and actor Ferdia Walsh-Peelo (Pistol, Sing Street, Here Are The Young Men) and now renowned session guitarist Josh Hackett (Tadhg Griffin, David San Clair) as a busking act in Wicklow paying homage to the likes of The Rolling Stones and the Lennon & McCartney duo. Fuelled by a great love of the country and blues sounds, songwriting the melodic anthems of the late 60’s was nothing short of natural to them as they shifted their focus to original music. In late 2019, drummer Cam Teehan of Dublin based band “of all living things” (Any Other City Records) began jamming with the group .

The Fynches were formed. A brand new act with something everyone can enjoy from their favourite time in music. Offering skilful multi-instrumentalists, memorable melodies, and a small peek into the past with a sound that’ll leave the listener wanting more.

Billy Wylder

From the front-lines at Standing Rock to the archaic streets of Jerusalem, the Sahel Desert to Carnegie Hall, music has been the source of strength for Billy Wylder. The band features Avi Salloway (Bombino/Hey Mama) who has performed across five continents including concerts at Coachella, Newport Folk Festival, New Orleans Jazz Fest, Montreal Jazz Fest.

The music weaves together American folk and rock with sensibilities from the Sahara Desert, exploring new musical space akin to Devendra Banhart, Beck, and Tinariwen. Salloway’s lyrics flow with inspiration from mythical songwriting hero Leonard Cohen, while threading together more abstract imagery reminiscent of Thom Yorke.

Billy Wylder has toured extensively, performing and collaborating with renowned artists including Jack Johnson, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Bombino, The Low Anthem, and Pete Seeger.


Leevy

Leevy (Amhlaoibh McSweeney) is an Irish Songwriter/Producer from the Cork Gaeltacht. His punk-infused Folk style began taking shape in his early teens, when he first sat in as a session guitarist for Cork Folk group The Thirsty Scholars, while in the meantime playing in local punk bands with his friends.

While attending a Music Technology course, he performed to hundreds nightly as frontman to a session band. He continued to write and produce throughout college.This culminated with him producing renowned Cork songwriter Ger Wolfe’s 2020 release The Morning Star, working with artists Les Salamandas and Rosi Lalor, and releasing his debut ingle Set Me Sailing in March 2020. His latest release, On the Wall of a Friend Buried in an Avalanche, is set to be released on the 23rd of July to all streaming platforms.

Dreambeam

From diverse backgrounds with an eclectic blend of influences, DreamBeam’s Margaret Kennedy/flute and Stephen Housden/guitar take us on an exciting journey in sound with an original repertoire that includes Celtic influenced melodies, acoustic funk, Latin rhythms and so much more.

Stephen ,who toured the world for many years as a member of Little River Band, and Margaret first met a few years ago at an informal music session in a West Cork pub. Realising they had a great musical chemistry they decided to work on some original tunes to record. Since they have developed a unique style and have released six tracks as DreamBeam and another three in collaboration with Stephen's band, Kings of Kudos. Their new single is an energetic Celtic Fusion track called Jiggin’ Boogie.
