All-female Dublin band Hvmmingbyrd release debut album

Hvmmingbyrd are very proud to announce the official launch date of thier debut album ‘Hvmmingbyrd’ in Whelan’s on Thursday, November 13th 2014! Copies of the album will be on sale on the night for €10 and will also be available on iTunes & Spotify.

Check out our brand new single ‘The One I Love’ here on Spotify:


Hvmmingbyrd attribute their indie folk, harmony-soaked sound to a range of modern and classic influences including Bon Iver, The Staves, Simon and Garfunkel and Joni Mitchell. Made up of Deborah Byrne (lead vocals/guitar), Becca Carroll (vocals/keys), Dolores Fogarty (flute/melodica/vocals), Helen Lane (drums/percussion/sax) and Catriona Mitchel (bass/double bass), this fivesome debuted in style on Culture Night 2013 at the Hugh Lane Gallery. Since then, they have charmed audiences with their delicate mix of melodic folk ballads, smooth blues and feelgood soul at a number of venues and festivals. They launch their debut self-titled album ‘Hvmmingbyrd’ on November 13th in Whelans – an event not to be missed!’

“One of my favourite bands to see live, Hvmmingbyrd’s sound ranges from delicate, harmony-soaked ballads, to feelgood reggae and funk, all held together by strong vocal arrangements and an infectious charm.” – Liam ‘Funzo’ McDermott
