JAMES OR's earnest songwriting and sound -tinged with a range of indie pop influences- have been praised for their authenticity.
Earning him plaudits like a place on Hotpress’s ‘Ones to Watch’ listings. In addition to reaching over 200,000 listeners on Irish & UK radio, James’s music has featured on An Irishman Abroad with Jarlath Regan.
His upcoming album, All the Beds We’ve Been in, was completed only weeks before the world first shut down in March 2020. Staying connected with his audience through his weekly ‘At Home Again, Naturally” live streams, James opted to wait for surer times to release his debut LP into the world. And in the intervening years, the album’s themes of relationships, romantic and platonic, loneliness, grief, acceptance, recovery, and growth feel, if anything, more relevant now than ever.
Returning to Cork for the first time since his last sold out show in 2019, James will be joined by a full band to play the songs from All the Beds We've Been in, and preview some new music live for the first time.
MADAM is the artistic vessel for the folktronica music of Cork norrie, Irishman, singer, performer and songwriter Adam O Donovan.
After performing and writing collaboratively with acts such as Atlantis Fire Department and Cassidy Club, Adam decided to go the recording cave in 2019 and emerged in 2022 with music, born out of a need to satisfy both acoustic and digital songwriting mediums and inspired by challenges with motivation, mental health and overcoming procrastination.
With two single releases in 2022 already, MADAM’s latest single “Doubt it” is out on June 9th, which is to be followed soon after by the much awaited release of “Come In” which is featured on the Cork based podcast “The Langer and Gowl”.
First gracing the stage at Coughlans singing alongside his friend Aengus supporting Mark Geary in 2013, MADAM is looking forward to returning to the venue playing live to you for the first time, as MADAM
