Ginger Twice are an Irish country pop acoustic duo band that consists of two friends named Amie O’Hanlon and Sarah Daly. Ginger Twice is influenced by Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, The Beatles and Picture This. Bothers Me is the band’s first single and was produced by Viscose. It is a country pop song written by Sarah Daly and Amie O’Hanlon. The artwork for Bothers Me was drawn by Eileen Rattigan. Bothers Me gained over 14k streams on Spotify in just three weeks which is incredible for a new band such as Ginger Twice. They were also selected as track of the week from the RTÉ2fm radio show with Ciara and Chris. The support that Ginger Twice got was incredible.
Ginger Twice has a new single out that is completely different from their first single. It’s called Burning and it’s about being rejected by someone you really like. It’s a folk pop acoustic song and it’s very emotional and it’s very sincere. It was produced by Viscose who is an amazing producer and it was written by Sarah Daly. The artwork was drawn by Eileen Rattigan who is an amazing artist. 
Ginger Twice wants to bring back the acoustic music into the music industry as they feel that there is a lot of songs out there that has too much production in their songs. Ginger Twice believe that less is more when it comes to music.

Pastiche- Chasing Down The Fame🥁

Dublin-based singer/songwriter Pastiche is set to release her debut single, “Chasing Down the Fame” on November 20th.

The explosive electro-pop song features driving synths, energetic drums, and powerful vocals from Pastiche. The engaging production and layered vocals create a dynamic track that establishes Pastiche as a force to be reckoned with in the Dublin pop scene. 

About the song, Pastiche says, “The song addresses the idea of achieving fame as a subjective journey; it almost never looks the same. I also think there’s a difference between fame and significance. Fame is usually an accident, but you can claim your own significance. I think this track is me doing that: showcasing my sound and trying to prove myself.”

She goes on to say, “I wanted to address not only where I hope to go but also where I came from. The line “I’ll show them what they made of me” is about all the rejections and “no’s” that have led me to where I am, developing thick skin, and needing to rely on my own self-belief.” 

On the Irish pop scene, Pastiche says, “Pop in Ireland always seems to be imported. There’s very few successful female Irish pop artists. The scene isn’t here – so we have to create it. Radio stations are playing Dua Lipa every five minutes- so why can’t we have Irish pop instead? I want to help break that barrier.” 

Though Pastiche performs with a live band, this track was completed remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic with producer Fergal Mullen (Jupiter Parks). The vocals were tracked at Beardfire Music. 

Pastiche’s sound combines dark pop, electronic pop, a rebellious club kid sound, and theatrical influences. She started stage school and musical theatre at a young age, and performed all over Ireland. Her love for music developed in school, and she studied vocals at BIMM Dublin, where she spent four years learning about the industry and honing her craft. She has already received attention for her writing ability, receiving the runner up prize in the Hotpress Now We’re Talking songwriting competition 2019. She is now in the process of recording and releasing her original music.

0Stella- Fire💿

0Stella [oh-Stella] is the project of Edmonton-based, Irish-Canadian artist Liz
Pomeroy. Reminiscent of Garbage, The Beaches and The Waterboys, ‘Fire’ is an
anthemic declaration of imperfection. Callistan has taken 0Stella’s alt-rock Irish
fusion and reimagined it as an infectious feel-good dance track.

Callistan is an Irish multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, producer. Previously of bands
Janey Mac, Fierce Mild and most recently ELM who showcased at Canadian Music
Week. The two Dubliners met in 2005 when 0Stella joined House Of Cosy Cushions,
Callistan’s first signing to his record label, SeaDog Records. This will be Callistan’s
first solo release under his new moniker.

On the artists’ long-standing friendship: “I managed to catch up with Callistan last
year when I was on tour in Ireland. I had just released the ‘LYLK’ EP and ‘Fire’ was
the stand-out track for him. We discovered a lot of similarities to our stories spanning
the decade since we’d last seen each other. This EP deals with some heavy
subjects, so it was really fun to reimagine this track with a lighter vibe.”

“I’ve always loved Callistan’s energy and outlook on the world. We’ve both struggled
with identity – he as a trans man and me as an Irish immigrant and dealing with
steroetypes of drinking that come along with that. I had difficulty detaching myself
from it. While ‘Fire’ touches on the darker side of substance abuse, Callistan’s
treatment gives that brazen song a sense of self-forgiveness that transforms it into a dance anthem.”

IN THEIR OWN WORDS
0Stella
“As an Irish immigrant in Canada, I’ve often struggled to find my own identity. We can all feel
pressured to live up to a stereotype. ‘Fire’ is a brazen declaration of your own imperfections.
When Callistan and I reconnected and discovered so many similarities in our stories, it felt right to
reimagine ‘Fire’ in a lighter, more upbeat way. It takes courage to find out who you really are. The
process can be messy and ugly, so you might as well lighten up and have a dance”

Callistan
“I love the origins of the song; a “declaration of imperfection”. Everyone has their own struggle with
that. As a Trans man, I’ve struggled silently for most of my life with that.
I try to remind myself constantly that imperfection is something that can be prized. It can be what
gives us empathy or keeps us human. In that sense, I feel that the reimagining of the song celebrates the imperfection we all feel and brings us a bit closer in doing so”

Recorded right before the lockdown, Cowboy is the first track of 2020 from Independent artist Elise.

Cowboy is a dreamy folk/pop track that emits a sense of nostalgia. It’s a song that journeys through childhood memories. Memories of running around the garden with cowboy hats, cap guns and being with the people who cared for you the most. The song touches off the feeling of regret and guilt from growing up and not being around those who were there for you in the past. Cowboy ultimately is about how time is the biggest healer, and helps reconnect you to your roots. 

Cowboy was recorded in Sun Studios, Temple bar at the end of February this year and was mastered by grammy award winner Joe LaPorta known for mastering artists such as Solange, Shawn Mendes and David Bowie. The track will be released October 16 on all music platforms. 

Elise is a singer-songwriter from Kilkenny. In October 2019, Elise released her Debut EP These Thoughts. As part of launching the EP, with her band, Elise played three successful nights in the Set Theatre Kilkenny, Bello Bar Dublin and Crane Lane Cork having cork band Jordan Run support and Dublin’s ELKAE.Elise has received attention from radio stations including KCLR and Dublin City FM. She is featured in many Irish playlists such as Golden Plec’s – Under The Influence, Mnásome – Antidote and Vamp & Fade’s – Irish Indie.

Elise began 2020 on a high note as a headline act upstairs at Whelan’s Ones To Watch. Elise has been recently featured in the new We’ve Only Just Begun Directory alongside hundreds of Irelands female and non-binary musicians. 

After her cancelled, May 2020, UK and Irish tour, with singer-songwriter Gary O’Neill, Elise focused on the release of her next single Cowboy.

Bristol🇬🇧

Over a year ago, I visited Bristol with my Mom. My aunt won two flight tickets on the radio and gave them to us. Bristol is somewhere I would never think of going otherwise, so it was hard to know what to expect. We stayed for 3 nights in a lovely hotel close to the centre. One of the days we went to Bath, which was an hour bus journey. It was worth the trip to this pretty town. Highlights in Bath included The Roman Baths and a Fashion museum. There are lots of shops in Bristol and one of the main attractions was Clifton Suspension Bridge. We also did a river cruise.
