Dublin based Songwriter / Composer / Singer / Guitarist Hugh Doolan has performed and recorded all over Europe; most recently though, particularly through the interactivity of Soundcloud, and with some notable film work under the belt, his musical output has exploded! A number of albums are available on iTunes and Bandcamp and many more new tracks get their first airing on Soundcloud where there’s a strong following. Styles vary from acoustic songs to soundscapes to electronic remixes and film soundtrack material. Everything is self-produced and includes collaborations with a host of other musicians around the planet; think earthy & atmospheric guitars fused with assorted live and sampled instruments. A distinctive voice tinged with folk soul velvetness and sharp everyday/poetic lyrics.
