Eamon McGrath never sleeps. He’s toured and recorded more songs than most artists do in a career.
Culled from 18 home-recorded albums, comes 13 Songs of Whiskey and Light, an introduction to a great talent well beyond his 21 years.
Folk, soul and blues music is filtered through a think, layer of psychedelic and raw garage punk rock. His music has been compared to that of both Neil Young and Black Flag; Tom Waits, Robert Johnson, Ryan Adams: a punk rock songwriter, with the smell of Saturday night on his wrists, and an amp capable of shaking the rafter on the roof.
13 Songs of Whiskey and Light will be released on White Whale Records on 24th May.
Eamon McGrath will be touring Europe with label-mates, The Mohawk Lodge who release their third full-length, Crimes, this summer. Overseen by producer Darryl Neudorf (Neko Case, New Pornographers), their song writing owes as much to Springsteen as to Smog, while their playing manages to bridge the gap between Fleetwood Mac and the Constantines.
