Celebrating the release of their debut EP, We Raise Bears bring their distinct sound to Whelans. A band noted for “standout live performances” (The Last Mixed Tape) and a poignant and political lyricism, We Raise Bears have become a rising name on the Irish live music scene. They have joined the line-ups of festivals that include Other Voices, Hard Working Class Heroes, Electric Picnic and Ones To Watch, while also headlining venues around the country and supporting top Irish acts like We Cut Corners.

Alongside their debut EP in which the band “manage to create a new sound that is thoroughly their own” (Dee Reddy, TXFM), a developing live sound showcases dynamic arrangements and a distinctive approach to songcraft.

“Rich and powerful voice, stunning lyrics… I was actually mesmerised by everything happening on stage” –

“My first thought was how compelling and rich Conor Miley’s voice is, my second was to double check that this is a debut EP” – Dee Reddy, TXFM
