We’d been collaborating on musical projects since 2012 but only did our first ‘proper’ gig together in June 2014 at the Empire Belfast. We then set out on the current journey last September, at one stage a trio including Dermot Reynolds was successfully road tested but other demands on Dermot saw us progress as a Duo since January 2015. Alternating regular gigs between Dublin & Belfast (and Holywood in the Summer) we feel our own distinctive style and sound has evolved. There has been no time for a full studio album so we popped into Ram Alley, between gigs, played some tracks live and ran them off, practically no post production, just us playing and singing, we hope you like the result – Rhiannah & Tony.
Recorded & mixed by Conor of Ram Alley Studios Belfast.
CD version coming shortly.
