Homebeat & Nialler9 in association with O’Hara’s Irish Craft Beer proudly present Future Proof – a new series of events showcasing essential emerging and established acts who are weaving themselves into the present and future fabric of the Irish music scene.
After a very full Bello on a wet Wednesday night enjoyed Come On Live Long, Proper Micro NV and Buffalo Woman, we’re back in the in the warm cosy surroundings of Bello Bar on Wednesday April 19th. Future Proof #2 features three of the most vibrant acts performing on these shores at this moment.
I wrote ‘Halfway’ about two years ago during a time when I wasn’t paying attention to my own needs and health, and I compromised my happiness for other people and their excessive expectations. Writing ‘Halfway’ was my way of pushing past this. It stands as a very important stage in my life and even though, in a way, I’m scared as fuck to release it, I’m so grateful that I can share it with people.
The song was made with producer Seán Behan (A Place Called Kai Studios).
Galway artist Laoise Ní Nualláin came to my attention with a downbeat electro pop cover of Nirvana’s Come As You Are earlier this year.
Laoise’s debut EP Halfway is coming in January and ‘You’ the first single ‘You’ mixes Laoise’s flighty vocals with a brooding electronic pop low-end and touches of R&B and pop.
Ní Nualláin grew up in Galway playing violin and piano before teaching herself the guitar at the age of 11. She started writing music at age 15.
Her debut EP was written when she felt she was halfway through working out mental and physical difficulties. She worked with producer Seán Behan (A Place Called Kai Studios). The Halfway EP is out in January.
