“Train Room has a quiet poignancy that immediately brings to mind a great Hemingway novel. Irish singer-songwriter Joe Monaghan has the ability to paint haunting vivid stories with his crafted lyrics and compelling voice. It’s always gratifying when I stumble upon an artist like Train Room and equally gratifying sharing the discovery with others. Listen to the songs “Horizon” and “The Lives of Others ” … I think you’ll agree”. Sheryl Zelikson ( Former Senior Music Producer for The Late Show )
