Eastbound Dublin proudly presents Smoothboi Ezra live at Whelan’s, 2nd February 2022. Tickets €15.00 are available now from

Earlier this year, Smoothboi Ezra celebrated the release of their new EP ‘Stuck’, which was picked up in publications such as NME, Consequence of Sound, DIY, Dork. Locally, Smoothboi Ezra was crowned RTÉ 2FM Track of the Week, South South West Track of the Week, named as ‘Rising Stars for 2021’ in Irish Times, Hot Press ‘Hot for 2020’, and many more.

From their poster-covered bedroom-meets-recording studio in sleepy Greystones, a small coastal town in Ireland, Smoothboi Ezra has developed a world class flair for emotive songwriting. Their songs are catchy but subtle; self-deprecating but never sombre; always utterly charming. They offer an often overlooked take on emotional relationships, as Ezra is writing as a person who is gender non-binary and on the autism spectrum. They are moving the needle on what it means to write a love song.

About Smoothboi Ezra:
Smoothboi Ezra is a 19-year-old songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer. Their recent single ‘My Own Person’ garnered widespread acclaim from the likes of BBC Radio 1, NME and The Irish Times. Their musical influences range from contemporaries like Phoebe Bridgers and Mitski, to legends like Elliott Smith and Kate Bush. In their short career, they have amassed over 17 million streams, despite releasing their music independently. They have supported Orville Peck at Dublin’s Grand Social and also sold out their first headline show at Whelan’s, Dublin in late 2019.

The ‘Stuck’ EP is out today, featuring the below tracks. Stream here.
