"Press Cuts"

As well as supporting major national and international artists and performing on a European tour in the summer of 2008, Junah have also been stirring interest, and drawing an increasingly larger audience in Dublin. Junah are currently involved in the post-production of their debut album, which was recorded in Dublin's well known Sun Studios. They will be making their much anticipated return to the national live circuit very soon.

"Junah are a five piece who are on the cusp of greatness….Junah is a rock band with massive potential to be huge". Ruby Tuesday Feature - 2008

"Junah have created an inventive brand of harmonic folk rock with tinges of the Irish ballad tradition...... 'Margin Walking' is more reflective, brimful of restrained emotion and is nothing less than breathtakingly beautiful." Jackie Hayden - Hotpress Magazine - 2009

"...because at this moment in time I can't think of any band making the kind of melodic folk rock sound that Junah makes. As singles go this is great and nods to an excellent debut on the horizon!" 2 U I Bestow - 2009

"I can honestly say that these are some of the most accomplished musicians you’re likely to see in any Irish band......they have that all-important knack for writing a great melody.......I’ve seen them win over all kinds of audiences with their tunes." kDamo Wordpress - 2009 - Many

"Low La Day Single Review"

Pick Of The Fortnight: Junah

Dublin-based five piece Junah have created an inventive brand of harmonic folk rock with tinges of the Irish ballad tradition. 'Low La Day' is all delicious harmonies and jangly guitars while also packing a meaty punch within its velvet gloves. 'Bring It Down' has an attractive medieval feel, a solid rock beat and a haunting depth that you want to dive into and bathe in. It builds magnificently to a stunning climax. 'Margin Walking' is more reflective, brimful of restrained emotion and is nothing less then breathtakingly beautiful. - Jackie Hayden - Hotpress Magazine

We thought about getting someone to write a really creative biography that would depict junah as the "next big thing", with all the imagination and sophistication that one would expect from a modern day band biog. We even have a few flattering quotes lying around somewhere to add that "Industry recognition" type glitter.

But to be quite honest, it’s not really what Junah is about. To put it in context, we've had some good times and some rather frustrating times. Like most bands, we have played some great gigs, some awful gigs and we have made a few recordings along the way.

We are Junah; Mick Smyth, Graham Smyth, Tony Jones, Robert Gray & Loik Moisan. The band has been around for a while but really only got started in 2007. With a single released in 2009 and an album on the way there is a lot to look forward to. Without sounding to pretentious, we feel the music we make deserves an unbiased description, which is not something that we can add ourselves. So with that in mind, have a listen, keep an open mind and we hope to see you at our next gig.

Thanks for listening, Junah.
