Fionn Regan

Ah, there’s so much that could be said about Fionn Regan… but I don’t feel like saying any of it, so I took this from Last.fm:

“The Irish singer-songwriter who hails from Bray, Co Wicklow enjoyed a warm response from the media and general public alike with the release of his ‘Hotel Room’ EP in 2004, which highlighted the captivating rawness of both his songs and his performance in a way that was both refreshing and inspiring. Better still, Regan has repeatedly proved that he can better his records when he plays live.

Citing his musical influences as Leadbelly, Howling Wolf, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Neil Young, The Velvet Underground, The Pixies and Nirvana, Regan has drawn comparisons to Young, Woody Guthrie and John Lennon. He has supported the likes of American Music Club, John Prine, Turin Brakes and rising newcomers Joanna Newsom and Willy Mason, to name but a few. Turin Brakes’ Olly Knights has said that Regan’s “ability to paint weighty and sublime imagery with words is untouchable and very rare, yet it’s combined with a sweet charm that renders all cynicism impotent.”

With his debut album, “The End Of History”, Fionn has taken a DIY approach to the sessions, using analogue equipment and recording in houses, a shed and a barn to try and capture a live sound.

On February 15th, 2010 Fionn Regan swept all expectations with the release of his sophomore effort, the more rock influenced “The Shadow Of An Empire.”

He’s one of my favorite artists — The End Of History is my most played album (according to Last.fm). Great songwriting, intricate guitar, and great music overall. Give him a shot, he deserves far more recognition than he gets (his newest album isn’t even being released in the US, for now). I’d say more, but I am le tired.

    Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested
    to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can
    be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has
    83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
