BandRockNew Age

Ebo create music that catches attention through dynamic contrast and carefully crafted melodies. Their reputation for intense, lively and exciting live shows can only spread further with the help of the Paper Planes single due for release later this year.


Formed in 2006, Ebo stand out from the current Irish scene.
Musically they embrace a wide range of influences and their original distinct style cannot be confined to one genre.

In the short time the band have been together they have gained a wealth of experience, playing support slots to many of Ireland’s high profile acts, such as Pilotlight, The Coronas, Mainline and Subplots (formerly Envelope) in addition to headlining numerous shows in top Dublin venues like Whelan’s and The Temple Bar Music Centre.

This year has already seen the band reach the finals of TG4’s Battle of the Bands, “Deis Roc”, (to be held in late March) and received glowing praise from the 3 judges, with Ebo being singled out by the entire panel as their vote to go forward to the Semi-Final.

Last year saw the group concentrate much of their efforts towards the completion of their eponymously titled debut EP, which is to be launched in Crawdaddy, Dublin, on Friday 28th March 2008.

The four members; Dan Forde, Cathal Mac an Bheatha, Mikey O’Connor and John Singleton, are currently studying at university. Juggling college and band life has proven to be a challenging yet rewarding task.

Ebo create intelligent, diverse music. Their melodic subtlety, explosive dynamic contrast and powerful live performances capture an audience’s attention; while lush three-part harmonies provide lasting respite from the cinematic ‘soundscape’ of their music.
