The Original Rudeboys biography
The Original Rudeboys kick off their 2012 campaign with the release of a brand new single. ‘Travelling Man’ was co-written and produced by the hotter-than-hot Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran) and gives fans a tantalizing taste of the on-the-horizon Original Rudeboys debut album.

The Original Rudeboys had an extraordinary first year, breaking out of nowhere as a quartet of cool YouTube clips propelled them to cult status among Irish teens. Viewing figures on their YouTube channel are now well in excess of 1 Million , not bad for a band who didn’t release a record until November of last year.
Original Rudeboys
The band’s debut single – ‘Stars In My Eyes’ – peaked at # 2 on iTunes, and earned them new fans both online and in the media. On the live scene, the band go from strength to strength. Having played at Oxegen last summer, the band headlined sell out shows of The Academy2, The Sugar Club and The Workman’s Club; and recently enjoyed stellar support slots with The Game, Olly Murs, Sinead O’Connor, Damien Dempsey & 50 Cent

‘Travelling Man’ is supported by a superb A To B remix, plus two brand new non album tracks: another Jake Gosling collaboration ‘Feel The Same’ and the acoustic heartbreaker ‘The Last Goodbye’. 4 top drawer tracks for 3 quid, real life music at a real life price.

The Original Rudeboys are: Rob: the singing and the guitar, Neddy: the rhymes
