New music in Ireland this week
Dublin based Fianna Fáil Cllr Trevor Gilligan is releasing 3 summer tracks
From Clondalkin, Gilligan is a self-thought songwriter & musician
He recorded the music at home using a PC & a digital keyboard. Using the Internet, Gilligan enlisted the help of vocalists and engineers from LA, Texas and London.
The EP consists of 3 tracks.
"When I heard the vocals for the 1st track 'No Need', I was floored by the quality out there. The Internet makes it easier for the small guy to create music. I think the songs are colourful, well produced & composed & a little different than what’s currently out there."
The video for ‘No Need’ was shot in the UK.
"I wrote the 2nd song 'Summer Sun' after watching an episode of 'A place in the sun’. The synth intro to ‘Addicted 2 U’ has a summery Calvin Harris vibe to it. I've been playing & making music since my early teens, so I should have done this a lot sooner. I suppose the fear of failure held me back, which is strange considering I have ran for election 3 times since I was 20."
