About this Event

Four acoustic artists and one stand up comedian, join us for another gig in E3!

____

Fergus

Fergus writes songs according to his mood, often choosing to embrace the melancholy, and through it finding a place of healing, beauty, and serenity. His formative years were spent singing and touring professionally with choirs, and playing ‘cello with orchestras. When this period of his life - a half, up to that point - came to an end he found himself burnt out, without a sense of identity. Seeking self-discovery, he rebelled. After a time adrift, his love of making music returned for good. Fergus turned his ability to blend into a strength, achieving harmony with his guitar and himself.

Emma O'Reilly

Emma O'Reilly is a Dublin based singer-songwriter from Galway, speciailising in dramatic alternative pop.

From an early age, Emma has been singing and performing in a range of styles and contexts, going on to study music at Trinity College Dublin. Since graduating, she has been gigging all over the country and abroad with a variety of different groups, and collaborating with different artists like Stu Daly, Discovery Gospel Choir, Loah, Trinity Orchestra, Tonnta and the Irish Youth Chamber Choir. She also recorded and produced several EPs and stand alone singles herself before stepping into the studio in 2014 to create PURGE, a short collection of songs with a huge orchestral sound, which saw her be compared to the likes of Kate Bush, I Have a Tribe, Tori Amos and Cathy Davey..

FRACTURES is her second independently produced studio EP, recorded by mixing live and multi-track processes. It explores a sound much closer to her live shows, and digs into her alternative rock influences. The result is alternately introspective and ferocious, vulnerable and dramatic, intricate and engaging.

"Emma's vocals soar beautifully... There's also a hint of Beatles and Paul McCartney." -Gary White, Totally Irish, 98FM

"Songwriting masterclass would seem to be O'Reilly's specialty...[her] songwriting skills are nothing short of genius." - Julie Bell, Pure M Magazine

Nominated Best Female Solo Act - Pure M awards, 2015

Nominated Best EP for PURGE - Pure M awards, 2015

Zack Van

Having relocated to Germany in 2018, Zack is making a brief return to London...

Zack has been writing and performing his own music in different continents for the last ten years. After starting to learn classical guitar as a young boy, and realising that it bored the hell out of him, he stopped the classes, much to the approval of his frustrated teacher and began teaching himself. He soon discovered the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Mark Knopfler, Rodríguez, Mike Batt and other artists and started developing his own style of playing.

With subtle blues tones and apparent folk influence, Zack has captivated audiences from China to Spain to New a York to the UK.
