Hailing from Donegal/Derry, Ireland, One Man Town has been building excitement around the release of debut, self-titled E.P ‘Cutthroat Desire’.
Lead singer, Graham Maree began his journey as a solo artist, but as the music grew so did the line-up, recruiting well-known local musicians including Stephen Mc Cool (guitar/piano), and Robert Arbuckle (bass). Despite coming from various backgrounds, their musical influences have merged skilfully to create the perfect amalgamation of sounds that is One Man Town.
One Man Town invites audiences to hear impassioned melodic vocals alongside a very authentic kind of blues\modern guitar, effectually showcasing the band’s aptitude to invoke a melancholy atmosphere without resorting to unnecessary layering and over the top production.
“A fantastic debut release, the track’s use every ounce of Maree’s powerful voice which is complimented by strong catchy riffs resulting in a beautiful big mash of Blues, Rock and Folk. Type of Band you know would grab the audience by the mojitos when performing live . Since releasing their debut self-titled E.P in August, the local band has built a reputation for their high energy performances. Their creative take for the first single and music video ‘Cutthroat Desire’ has seen the video hit over 10,000 views on YouTube since its release in September. With another record in the works and tours of Ireland and the UK this year, this band are set to take 2017 by storm.” – The Derry Live List.
