Line Up

Kaviani has announced the release of his debut single, ‘Don’t Let The Bombs Drop, Daddy,’ on April 29th 2019.

Produced by Phil Da Costa, ‘Don’t Let The Bombs Drop, Daddy,’ is the lead single from his forthcoming EP to be released in October 2019.

Referencing influences such as Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Neil Young and Thin Lizzy, Kaviani says of his debut single, ‘I wanted to write a song when the UK & US invaded Iraq in 2003 but I had only just started to write songs then. Having seen the recent atrocities in Syria, Palestine and Ukraine to name just three countries, I felt now was the time to approach the issue and it all came out one night in this song.’

It’s been a busy time for Kaviani, who has spent the last few years as a session guitarist, touring with multi-platinum artists Joe Lynn Turner (Deep Purple/Rainbow) and Eric Martin (Mr Big) as well as touring with Damon Johnson & Ricky Warwick (Thin Lizzy/Alice Cooper/Black Star Riders).

Kaviani was also recently asked to cover for Sebastian Bach/Taylor Hawkins guitarist Brent Woods on Tara Lynch’s support tour for UFO, on their 22-date sold out farewell tour of the UK & IRL.

Now taking his skills to his own craft, Kaviani has spent time writing and recording in London and Nashville, writing with multi-platinum producers Phil Da Costa (Sir Tom Jones/Mick Fleetwood) and Pete Woodroffe (Def Leppard).

EJ O'Reilly’s music stems from a childhood growing up in Ireland’s countryside paired with a far too much American television. Combined with time spent living in Belfast, Glasgow and London, the resulting music takes a look at modern life in an aged Folk/Americana sound.
