AMAZING APPLES

plus guests

OKIS WAGON

Galway band ‘Amazing Apples’ are launching their brand new single ‘Slipping By’ on March 14th. Over the last few months, they have been in studio working on their new album, to be released later this year. This folk rock band has fast become legendary for their high-energy live performances and extensive original playlist, each song, an instant hit with their growing fan base.

Often described as a new style ‘Waterboys’ meets ‘Mumford and Sons’, the Apples have drawn comparisons to dynamic live bands while blazing their own original trail. All band members are talented songwriters and multi-instrumentalists (incorporating bouzouki, mandolin and fiddle for their live show).

Amazing Apples emerged on the music scene in 2012 with inventive unique covers and an original EP, which reached number 1 in the iTunes downloads charts. They then spent the following year developing their unique sound, writing material and building their invigorating live show. They were also chosen twice as ‘Play Irish’ artist of the month. In 2013 they played on the Salty Dog Stage at Electric Picnic, headlined their first festival at Currafest and played a great set at Helium Festival (alongside The Stunning, Kila and Mick Flannery).

Oki’s Wagon are a Dublin-based band whose distinctive sound is infused with a bluesy folk sensibility but informed by their collective influences and personalities.

An Oki’s Wagon gig offers everything from raucous, foot-stomping numbers to subtle jazzy arrangements and this rich musical tapestry is completed by singer Audrey Gleeson, whose evocative vocal talents have drawn comparisons to Patsy Cline and Linda Ronstadt.

Country, blues, jazz and trad may seem like unlikely musical reference points for a folk band but their sound is more than just the sum of their individual influences. The six-piece combines to produce music that is underpinned by memorable melodies and intelligent compositions but invested with the energy of an impromptu jam.

“A country and folk-tinged six-piece destined for greater things” – The Irish Star

“A steadfast composure that manages to dazzle and impress” – U&I Music Magazine
