Biography

On vocals, guitar and piano Mick Scullion leads the band with his melodic warbling - touching the wonders of modern life, love and loss and occasionally entering into the surreal, painting images with thought provoking lyrics. This, when intertwined with the delicate fret board wizardry of new addition Kevin Gormley and dynamic rhythm section of Karl Zilizi on Bass and JP Donnelly on drums, combines to produce the signature Rass sound.

Performances recently as part of BBC Music Live and gigs in various venues on the local/National scene [ Mandella Hall, Speakeasy, limelight, Frontpage, Square Peg etc ] have seen the band go from strength to strength. Following the release of their debut EP Brothers and Fools.

Over the past 6 months, Cuckoo Rass have played 2 largely recognised showcases for Irish Music and have provided Support at the Galway Festival for The Revs.
