The IMRO Podcast at Other Voices
Last weekend at the 21st birthday celebrations of Other Voices in Dingle, host Tony Clayton Lea sat down with three of the five acts that took to the stage for this year's IMRO Other Room.
How did they get on? Listen in to hear from Galway-born hip-hop/rap artist Celaviedmai, Dingle-native and ex-Walking on Cars frontman Pa Sheehy, and Corey & Fatboy of Ballymun's very-own neo-soul, R&B, jazz, & hip-hop group Bricknasty.
In this month's episode of The IMRO Podcast, Zara Hedderman sits down with Conor O'Brien of Villagers. Over a cup of tea, they spoke about everything from the last twelve years and five albums of his career - including the evolution of his song-writing and artistry as a whole.
In this episode of The IMRO Podcast, host Zara Hedderman speaks to Ronan Kealy a.k.a. alternative folk artist Junior Brother about his brilliant second album, The Great Irish Famine, which came out earlier this month.
True crime has become one of the most popular genres across film, TV, podcasting... however, there aren't many albums that come to mind that take the details of an unsolved murder and transform them to music.
In this episode of The IMRO Podcast, Dublin-based musician and songwriter Keeley Moss joins our host Zara Hedderman to share her passion for all things music - biopics, books, as well as the key influences that inspires her work as lyricist, lead-vocalist and guitarist with her band Keeley.
On this episode of The IMRO Podcast, host Zara Hedderman joins the wonderful Paul Noonan (Bell X1, HousePlants, Printer Clips) to chat all things life, career, inspirations and most importantly, favourite desserts.
