The best kept secret in music


"First Cuts"

"An ultra-soft voice shows obvious influences from Josh Ritter and Nick Drake all under-pinned by excellent guitar picking. For a first attempt this is a truly worthy effort and augurs well for the future."

"The vocals recall Simon and Garfunkel at their peak. 'The Tin Man's Lament' scores for its brevity and its ability to get to the point."

Feeling a bit camera shy


Alan Tully from Dublin began to play gigs while living in Lyon, France in 2004 at Johnny Walsh's Irish Pub. There he played covers of traditional Irish tunes and contemporary hits along with Californian jazz guitarist Vince Courtroy. He had a residency there for six months and was advised by Adrian Walsh, the owner, to ring people up and sing into their answerphones to cheaply record himself. Instead, upon returning to Ireland Alan bought a home recording studio and set about writing his own material.

Since then he has produced a number of demos which have been featured in Hotpress magazine and has also been interviewed and received airplay on Dublin's FM104. Alan has been playing around Dublin since the August 2005 with gigs in places ranging from UCD, Slatterys of Capel Street, Pravda and Bia Bar to the Sugar Club, Whelans and Bewleys Cafe Theatre. In the last year he has supported Colm Quearney, Tadhg Cooke, Matt Lunson and Cousin Elias and has been on bills with Paul Wilkes, Will Varley the Maladies and the Star Department. A recent addition to the live act was guitarist Eamonn Bolger.
