PREACHERS SON – “JERICHO” EP LAUNCH
New EP: Jericho. Release October 23rd. To celebrate the release of their new EP Jericho Preachers Son are throwing a free Launch party with some live music, some munchies and drinks. Come join them and wet the baby’s head.
Preachers Son is the brainchild of Dubliner Brian Hogan. Grit-glam, roots-rock featuring powerful vocals, slammin’ guitars and a driving rhythm section, the music drips with drama and raw musicality, travelling the decades with its influences.
At home the band have performed at numerous festivals, including Ocean Volvo Race Festival, Vantastival, Festival Of The Fires, The Hot Press Jaigermeister ‘summer’ Freezer Sessions and Electric Picnic amongst others. Internationally they have performed in Italy, UK, Canada and the USA.
Playing in bands since the age on ten, notable highlights of Brian’s career to date include Glastonbury, Reading, Cambridge Folk Festival, the Electric Picnic, Womad festivals worldwide and the Montreaux Jazz Festival. He has enjoyed playing with George Hamilton IV, Bono, U2, Ronnie Wood, Sinéad O Connor, The Dubliners, Paul Brady, Donal Lunny, Liam O Maonlaoí, Glenn Hansard and The Cheeky Girls amongst others.
In Ireland Brian is probably best known for his work, playing bass guitar and co-writing, with renowned Irish contemporary trad band Kíla. However with his solo project Preachers Son (the name referring to his father Larry Hogan who spent his life preaching and singing) growing steadily, Brian has returned to his bluesy rock ‘n roll roots.
In essence Brian’s love of music crosses many genres and Preachers Son encapsulates this passion, pure & simple.
