Irish Mythen

Irish Mythen

Irish was born in Ireland and now resides in Charlottetown Prince Edward Island Canada. This Island creates music and musicians, art and artists. I found a shift to take things more seriously when I moved here. And she did just that.

Her latest release, the self titled Irish Mythen, gained her recognition round the globe with nominations and wins coming from Music PEI, East Coast Music Association, Folk Alliance International and Socan.

Write-ups in Australian Guitar Magazine, Rolling Stone and a plethora of online publications world wide have helped plant Irish firmly on the map of 'Must See Artists'.

Irish has three full-length albums and two EPs to her name.

"I had no idea what to expect when this five foot nothing lady took the stage, all smiles and twinkling eyes and guitar. Then, she opened her mouth and out flew a voice that came straight from the Heavens with all the power and the glory and the truth of someone destined to be a singer. I've been blessed with seeing and hearing a lot of talented musicians in my life, but I have never experienced anyone quite like Irish Mythen. She is a force of nature and a gift from Almighty Herself."

(Lisa Schwartz, Philadelphia Folk Festival)

Nick Lowe's Quality Rock & Roll Revue starring Los Straitjackets

Nick Lowe's Quality Rock & Roll Revue starring Los Straitjackets

Nick Lowe has made his mark as a producer (Elvis Costello-Graham Parker-Pretenders-The Damned), songwriter of at least three songs you know by heart, short-lived career as a pop star, and a lengthy term as a musicians’ musician. But in his current ‘second act’ as a silver-haired, tender-hearted but sharp-tongued singer-songwriter, he has no equal.

Starting with 1995?s ‘The Impossible Bird’ through to 2011?s ‘The Old Magic,’ Nick has turned out a fantastic string of albums, each one devised in his West London home, and recorded with a core of musicians who possess the same veteran savvy. Lowe brings wit and understated excellence to every performance, leading Ben Ratliff of the New York Times to describe his live show as “elegant and nearly devastating.”

His new 4 song EP “Tokyo Bay” features Los Straitjackets as his backing band.
