Junior Brother is an experimental alternative folk singer/ songwriter from Co. Kerry, Ireland, playing sometimes humorous, sometimes heady tunes. Strange stories, poetic and arcane, unfold with reckless abandon upon an idiosyncratic Guitar and Foot Tambourine accompaniment, taking musical influence from his upbringing in rural Ireland.


Chosen as one of RTÉ’s Rising Irish Stars of 2018, Junior Brother has been steadily building a fanbase in his current base of Dublin, and around the country, winning followers with his unique and powerful live shows. He has played the annual Whelan’s Ones to Watch festival the last two years, turning heads also in the Spirit Store (Dundalk), The Islington (London), The Duncairn (Belfast), Dolan’s (Limerick), among many other venues country-wide. He has played support for a variety of like-minded acts such as the Hot House Flowers, The Spook of the Thirteenth Lock, Seamus Fogarty, Paddy Hanna and David Keenan.

JB has taken his striking live performance style to stations such as 98fm and Radio Nova, and has seen his songs aired on such national broadcasters as 2fm and Lyric FM, also being featured on Myles O’Reilly and Donal Dineen’s groundbreaking music series This Ain’t No Disco. He is currently recording his debut album, to be released early 2019.

The new album hits stores this Friday May 24th. Be sure to pick up a copy
