Junior Brother Interview

Junior Brother is an alternative folk singer/ songwriter from Kilcummin, Co. Kerry, playing slightly unhinged, sometimes heady tunes.

His music is unique, experimental and distinctly Irish, being heavily influenced by his upbringing in rural Ireland, attempting through the songs’ sounds and atmospheres to recreate the archaic, weird and beautiful nature which surrounds his family home. Currently based in Dublin, Junior Brother’s played the annual Whelan’s Ones to Watch festival the last two years, and has played support for acts such as the Hot House Flowers, R.S.A.G. and Mark Geary.

He has three EP’s; a demo collection called “The Slane is Gone”, the “Sleeping at the Bottom of the Sea” EP, which has gotten some rotation on RTE Lyric Fm’s Blue of the Night programme, and a new EP called “Fuck Off I Love You” recorded over a year in his family dining room. Influences include Planxty, Richard Dawson, Pentangle and Richie Kavanagh, the harp playing of Derek Bell and Alan Stivell, and the vocals of Dessie O’Halloran and Joanna Newsom.
