Track of the Day: Waterford based artist Shane Barry, returns with a new single ‘Get the Love’

Having had previous success with the soul/indie influenced Shane Barry & the Distractions, Shane has spent the last few years obtaining a PhD, raising a family, and playing other people’s songs to finance this new solo project.

The pause in performance opportunities in 2020 led to a rediscovery of enjoying music and writing songs.

Track of the Day: Waterford-based multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer, Shane Barry, returns with a new single ‘Get the Love’

In discussions with regular collaborator, mixing engineer and former O Emperor drummer, Brendan Fennessy, enough basic equipment was purchased to self-engineer his upcoming album, ‘Songs from the Silver South’.

Away from the time and financial pressures of the studio, the album was recorded in bedrooms, hallways and practice rooms over 2021 and 2022, while toddlers slept and neighbours mowed lawns.

The album aims to infuse ambient soundscapes with Beatles-inspired pop, to create a setting for the characters and places in each of the songs.
