Music supervision / licensing

Niall is available to suggest music for use in projects including digital media, ads, TV, films, in-flight entertainment etc with an emphasis on emerging Irish music. Full info on this page.

I endeavour to listen to everything I get sent but due to the high volume of emails coming in, it is now impossible to listen to everything. Please don’t chase up after you’ve sent an email – I will read the first one even if it takes me a few weeks. If I don’t get in touch, please don’t take it personally.

Promos, streams, track links, tips & releases:

[email protected] to send tracks, releases, EPs. Please consult my Band Tips guide to contacting bloggers at First Music Contact or my more recent Irish Times contribution on the same subject before you get in touch. Please try and give as much advance of the release as possible as it often takes me a few weeks to get through everything sent in.


[email protected] – if you want to advertise on Nialler9, get in touch with the ad team.

Gig listings, festival press releases & live info

[email protected]. I only feature stuff of interest to the site and its audience in Dublin in the weekly Gig Guide so please don’t be offended if I don’t feature you. Festivals and really special non-regular events I want to hear from you.

If you are sending music. I prefer it sent in this order: Soundcloud, Bandcamp, direct link to MP3s hosted on your site, Youtube or other hosted service. You should only send email attachments if requested. Public or private streams are good.

If you’re looking for feedback on your songs, I’ll try but it may take a few weeks or more. Again, apologies in advance if I don’t reply – I also have a life and that life will be very upset with me if all I did with it was reply to emails.
