Description

Paul Noonan – multi instrumentalist and well known as lead singer of Bell X1, brings his unique sound to Drumcondra in a special solo gig for New Sounds In An Old Place on Friday April 26th. Paul, one of Ireland's most respected songmakers is always creatively making things new. Noonan returns with a new single ‘Beautiful Phones’, a stirring pop song. “This is not a game, this is not a misunderstanding, I will not atone for the sins of another,” he proclaims. It was produced in collaboration with the Gloaming’s Thomas Bartlett and recorded between Dublin and New York. Noonan says: “While it’s not an overtly political song, it was triggered by an early pearl of wisdom from Donald Trump’s White House adventure, in which he gushed that the West Wing had some ‘beautiful phones’.”

Toward the end of last year Paul released ‘Moth To Your Flame’ and before that the Side 4 Collective released ‘The Flood’, a song penned by Paul. Also last year, he teamed up with Daithi on the atmospheric ‘Jesus, Take The Wheel’. One of Ireland’s most respected songwriters, Paul has also released music under the Printer Clips handle as well as co-curating shows such as Starboard Home and the Imagining Ireland - 21St Century Song at the NCH and Barbican.

We can't wait to hear what he will do next. Don't miss this intimate solo gig in the magical athmosphere of St John the Baptist Church where you'll hear well loved songs and newly minted solos from across Paul's output.

The Venue

We are privileged to be able to use Drumcondra Church of Ireland as a venue. An 18th century heritage building hidden off the main Drumcondra Road, St John the Baptist Church of Ireland on Church Avenue has many stories to tell. Rebuilt in 1743 in memory of the wonderfully named Marmaduke Coghill, who lived first across the road in Belvedere House on what is now the St Patrick’s Campus and, when that was deemed too small, in a newly built Drumcondra House on what is now the All Hallows campus of DCU. There are memorials to notable figures in the graveyard. The architect James Gandon, the Jameson Family (of Whiskey fame) crypt and Patrick Heeney (who composed the music of the Irish national anthem) are among the notables found in this graveyard. The Church is still in active use with regular services and is part of the diocese of Dublin: Parish of Drumcondra, North Strand and St Barnabas.
