DUBLIN BASED SINGER/SONGWRITER
Following a brilliant summer playing John Kennedy’s Radio X Summer Party with Mystery Jets, APRE and Calva Louise; Reading & Leeds Festivals; as well as Electric Picnic, Irish-born, indie artist, Somebody’s Child returns with arguably his best track to date, the brilliant Jungle.
Using his music as a platform to maintain a conversation on mental health, Somebody’s Child frequently finds solace in songwriting and is not afraid to address, and share his personal aperture.
In just nine months as an act, he’s gathered quite the collection of accolades. His debut Make You Alright and follow up single Toes saw national Irish radio play across a multitude of stations garnering a total of 7.3 million listener impacts, with his follow up single Distance landing over 5 million listener impacts as well as Song of the Week on Irish radio station, RTE 2fm. Further afield, all three tracks have gained momentum at BBC Introducing, as well as Make You Alright picking up traction on Radio X, which led to Somebody’s Child respectively playing the BBC Introducing stage at Reading and Leeds Festivals, and John Kennedy’s Radio X Summer Party this summer.
He’s also made a considerable impression online, with flattering reviews from such tastemaking blogs as Clash, EARMILK, Atwood Magazine and many others, reaching No. 1 on Hype Machine chart, landing numerous Tracks of the Day, and earning placements on the coveted Spotify editorial playlists ‘Hot New Bands’ and ‘A Breath of Fresh Eire’.
Now performing accompanied by a band, Somebody’s Child will be supporting band, All Tvvins during their Irish tour in October [tickets here], as well as playing Irish Music Week in Dublin on 4 October.
Jungle will be available on all digital platforms on 3 October.
