Train Room is the brainchild of Balla songwriter, musician and producer Joe Monaghan. Train Room’s first gig, at Dublin’s showcase Hard Working Class Heroes Festival last October, and debut EP Delicate Bones, brought the band’s distinctive sound to general attention and significant interest. Joe, who has been honing his musical skills recording demos for the past seven or eight years (in his studio in Balla), cites musical influences as broad as Wilco, Whipping Boy, Kate Bush, Neil Young and Nina Simone. But listen to Delicate Bones, and you’ll hear that Train Room makes music that is very much its own. A band on the ascendant, and one to watch.
