The Script

The band's debut album, The Script, is released today March 17!

The Script is an Irish band, with a very unusual Irish flare. They take classic Celtic music and mash it up with soul, R&B and amazing lyrics. The boys in the band all hail from Dublin but the trio didn't team up until they were all working for other bands in L.A.!

The Answer

The Answer is a bad-boy hard rock band that originated in Ireland. They've created buzz as the opening act for AC/DC and their debut album, Everyday Demons, is set to hit the United States on March 31st. This album has already been released in Europe, to rave reviews.

Lisa Hannigan

Lisa Hannigan is a woman to watch. Her sweet and edgy sound will remind you of Sinead---minus the picture of the pope tearing drama! Definitely worth checking out her album, Sea Sew.
