Julie Feeney (MMT) is a singer, orchestrator, songwriter and producer Julie Feeney is winner of the Choice Music Prize for ‘Irish Album of the Year' (Ireland's equivalent of the Mercury Music Prize) for her self-produced debut album on which she played most of the instruments herself. She combines her “mesmerizing stage presence and eccentric pop genius” (Hot Press) with her unquestionably original sound, and her innovative, avant-garde approach, while rooted in classical music, straddles both the pop and theatrical worlds. For her recent sell-out 10 show run in New York City at IAC, the New York Times said of Julie, “…intricate, articulate…draws on sources across centuries…Ms. Feeney's songs don't shout. They tease, ponder, reminisce, philosophize and invent parables, and she sings them in a plush, changeable mezzo-soprano that usually holds a kindly twinkle”. The New York Times concluded, “…a brainy adventurous songwriter lives within the flamboyant theatricality…with songs that set character studies and philosophical musings in elaborate musical confections, often with long, internally rhymed lines… Theatrical on the shell, intricate at the core”. Sharp witted, unpretentious and fiercely passionate, Julie Feeney is a genuine artist and a hugely enjoyable performer.

Our aim is to provide a platform for music that maximises the expressive potential of sound, instruments and voices either through physical or electronic means, whether composed, constructed or improvised."

Sonnamble

Sonnamble, now based in London, was formed in 2009 by Conor Curran (MMT) and Peter Marsh to explore the possibilities of live improvisational playing and real time digital processing. Two albums were released featuring Marsh’s stringed instruments (lap steel guitar, double bass and bass guitar) fed through Curran’s custom software routines. These received some critical acclaim and airplay on both the BBC and RTE, drawing comparisons with the likes of Christian Fennesz.
