ABC Music’s brand new label FOUR | FOUR is fast building a reputation with Timber and Steel staff as a bastion of quality music in this country. Their signings so far have included the likes of Tim Rogers, The Snowdroppers, The Tiger & Me and Boy In A Box – all very impressive artists in their own right. And their latest signing just adds more clout to that reputation with none other than Irish singer-songwriter Damien Dempsey coming on board.
Damien Dempsey is somewhat of a legend in his native Dublin probably down to the fact he sings with his thick Dublin accent and his songs are always filled with passion. And he’s managed to build quite a following in Australia as well having toured here a few times, even headlining Sydney Opera House as part of Brian Eno’s Luminous Festival in 2009.
Along with signing to FOUR | FOUR Dempsey has also announced the upcoming release of his upcoming album Almighty Love. Due on the 5th October Almighty Love also features collaborations with some amazing artists such as Sinead O’Connor, Justin Adams, Caroline Dale, Marco Pirroni and Clare Kenny.
It sounds like it’s going to be an absolute ripper of an album and who knows, maybe we’ll see Damien Dempsey back on our shores before too long.
