“Flawlessly melodic yet imbued with an understated menace, Fiach’s slow-burning ballads probe the dark spaces at the edges of the singer-songwriter formula. He turns clichés on their head, investing familiar themes with a sense of creeping unease” - Metro ; “Supreme performer…” - Hot Press ; “For those who remain profoundly troubled by the knowledge that there will never be another Jeff Buckley album, praise probably doesn’t come any higher” - Metro _____________________________________________________ “Fiach (pronounced Fee-Ock) is a 25 year old Dubliner, well respected and loved within the Irish music scene for his beautiful songwriting, exceptional voice and fantastic guitar playing. He is fondly known as the ‘Hardest Working Artist in Ireland’, but it was his talent that found him sharing the stage with the cream of Irish artists such as Damien Dempsey, Kila, Freddie White, Declan O’ Rourke, Finbar Furey, Mundy, Damien Rice, BellX1, Luka Bloom and Paddy Casey, who coincidentally said that Fiach’s song ‘Dignity’ was the best song he heard in 2005. Fiach is known for his humourous and honest live shows and his raw approach to his music, often bringing guests on stage to openly jam; but it’s his voice that really hits home…it is full with expression and control, some times hard and coarse to direct his agression on political and social issues, then suddenly wrapped around you with soft lyrics and breathy tones in his seeringly confessional lyrics. His concerts are where this young artist shines, always unpredictable, and always a very special event. Up to now, Fiach has been steady on the gig circuit, playing festivals in France, Holland, New York and Scotland as well as gracing every top venue in Ireland, so it is only a matter of time before he is playing at a venue near you…so check out a gig and see what the Dublin music scene has been quietly hiding, and what it soon will be able to hide no more.” —> Wallis Bird.
