Biography

Emmet Scanlan & What the Good Thought are an Independent music act from Ireland whose music veers away from the usual yet is embraced by all of those who hear it.

'a debut that makes considerable virtue of its scattergun song book….they sink deep beneath the skin of a song' The Irish Times on the band's 2009 release, 'Hands'

The band formed in 2004 in Ireland and over the past few years the band have had some significant successes -

They have played numerous prestigious festivals worldwide : The Wickerman Festival (Scotland), The Electric Picnic (Ireland) and The International Folk Alliance (USA). The list of artists is diverse in style and includes Femi Kuti, Badly Drawn Boy and The Saw Doctors.

Emmet also provided the soundtrack to the shoot film 'Without Words', which has been awarded a Cannes Festival award by Spike Lee and viewed over 500,000 on-line.

Emmet and the band have been based in London for the last year and 2014 saw the release of their new EP, From the Inside Out. They are releasing their latest EP, These are the dreams, This is the life, November 2016.

Brand new soul/pop duo based in London. They’re sound is balanced between strong sounds of acoustic guitar and dark vocals. Usually performing in small intimate venues to get all listeners hypnotized with the story they’re about to tell. They’re at the beginning of their music path by playing open mics and occasional gigs.

Mungo Parker is a singer-songwriter from South-West London. He has just finished writing his solo EP 'Golden Hours' and is gaining a large fanbase whilst playing this new material.

Hailing from the small, seaside town of Gourock on the West coast of Scotland (& currently living in Doha), Scott has travelled well, playing his original music. Personal triumphs include two nights at the world-famous Whisky A Go-Go in West Hollywood (supporting 60’s rockers Iron Butterfly), The Cavern Club in Liverpool & several television appearances in the UK.

Drawing on influences from Lennon/McCartney to Bowie, Scott’s music has a classic feel, with an experimental sonic twist. Growing up, his father (a self-confessed Beatles fanatic) exposed him to the music of the “Fab 4” & since then, Scott has wanted to little else. Despite having picked up a guitar at the age of 4 and trying to play along with his favourite records, it wasn’t until his teenage years that he truly immersed himself in The Beatles’ experimental album “Revolver” & subsequently more psychedelic music from the 1960’s & 70’s – which has shaped his sound in so many ways since.

It was also around this time that Scott began to experiment with recording. Being able to play drums, guitar, bass & keyboard meant that he could record a full-band track by himself & didn’t have to teach anyone else the parts to his songs – something that he has continued to do ever since.

Always experimenting, it’s exciting to hear just what musical ground this man will cover next…
