MYLES MANLEY
FRIDAY 3rd FEB

8pm
€10 venue pass (includes Oose, Wastefellow and Le Boom)

Myles Manley is a folk singer from Sligo Ireland, performing at The Quarter Block Party with Solamh Kelly (drums) and Chris Barry (guitar/bass). The trio are playing rhythmic songs, written and arranged with acoustic guitar and a sampler, which when played with this more traditional setup make for jubilant and bizarre protest pop music.
The band are in favour of humour, generosity, vanity and good looks as tools of musical expression.

Clash Magazine (clashmusic.com)“[Pay Me What I’m Worth] is an anthem for anyone who works below middle management… a gem.” Phil Taggart, BBC Radio 1“an eye and ear for the twisted pop nugget … adventurous live shows … audacious ambition … already showing a very impressive set of heels”
Jim Carroll, Irish Times“completely one-of-a-kind artist … hugely accomplished … a brilliant and unconventional poetic mind”
The Thin Air (thethinair.net)“when Manley wants, he can knock out a classic pop ear worm with the best of them”
