AMORIC are an award winning four-piece rock band from Bulgaria who are now based in Dublin, Ireland. They released their self-titled debut EP digitally in 2009. Recorded in Dublin's Temple Lane Studios with Grammy nominated US producer Bruce Sugar, the EP helped AMORIC gain a large online fanbase. Their follow-up EP ‘Keep Up’, self-produced and released for download in 2010, saw the band pushing their music to a brighter soundscape. They shot two videos for the EP tracks 'Keep Up' and '7 a.m.', generating over 100 000 views on You Tube. With new material set for release in 2013, AMORIC will be hitting the stage in venues around Ireland and the UK.
The Eskies formed not so much as a band but as a gentleman’s
club-come-minor social movement in Germany in late 2006. Known then as
Die Bierin Coolers, they passed the long days in the feverish German
summer heat herding tourists on and off coaches and each night would
retire to their private quarters for often intense rounds of
children’s game “Candyland”. Since then, The Eskies have brought their
unique brand of contemporary country-folk (often segwaying into
Poe-esque Gothic lament or sea shanty) and swaggering stage spectacle
to several venues around Dublin and beyond including performances at
last year's Knockanstockan, Salty Dog at Electric Picnic and Jack of
Diamonds Rhythm and Roots Festival. They launched their EP “Sherry Go
Round” in November 2012 to a sold out crowd at the Grand Social.
