Music

Press


Bill Coleman has taken the crown from fellow Cork man Rory Gallagher as the nicest man in the Irish Music Industry. Coleman's tenderness of voice and catchy turn of phrase have built the musician a solid fan base, appearing on radio & TV shows, playing festivals and gigs all over the country.

The beautiful "Offer Up the Hope" can be described in no other way. Coleman has managed to capture that elusive zeitgeist on his recordings again and again. A melodic swarf washes over the listener and in this place we can bathe in the gentle beats; relaxing, uncaring - a momentarily free-of-inhibitions sing-along.

The EP is available from Coleman's website www.bcoleman.com. We eagerly await more. - Connected Magazine


Originally from Cork but now based in Dublin Bill Coleman's live shows have been described as "gorgeous, intimate and not to be missed" You can catch him with full band at the forthcoming Castlepalooza Festival.

Bill Coleman began playing the guitar when he was sixteen and has perfected his addictive sound through experience. Originally from Cobh in Co. Cork, he came to Dublin for college, adventure and new musical opportunities. The energetic cohesiveness of light harmonies and suave rock in his music has ensured he is finding a niche in the singer-songwriter arena. He is planning to release his debut Single later this year.

Bio

BILL COLEMAN is a musician from Cork , Ireland.

His music has been compared to Elvis Costello and the Cure amongst others. Finger plucked guitars abound, allied with two-fingered keyboard riffs, melodic vocal lines, a catchy turn of phrase and a refreshingly positive attitude. First released by Mango Music on their “For Your Machine” compilation (both Josh Ritter & Neosupervital were other notable contributors) he went on to release his debut EP on his own label in 2003.

Since adopted by Irish "No Disco" website irishmusiccentral.com as one to watch for the future, this year has seen him being highlighted by Tom Dunne on his "Pet Sounds" radio show as a Rising Artist, and fitting TV & festival appearances and constant gigging into an increasingly busy schedule.

Bill is currently putting the finishing touches to his debut album “I’ll Tear My Own Walls Down” and preparing a single release and national tour for October.
