Bio

Recorded and produced by Niall and Gareth Mannix
(Republic of Loose, Delorentos) over the past year, Lines & Space (release date Oct 2008) is Niall’s first solo project after two critically acclaimed albums with the band Salthouse. Playing many of the instruments on these new tracks himself, Niall has honed a distinctive style; a hushed confidence of melody and groove, inside disco, rock and sometimes even folk. Not afraid to admit where his inspiration comes from, he says it’s everything from love, loss, to the history of life. You’ll find street scenes in one song, ancient maps in another.

Niall’s songs come across as honest explorations of everyday feelings without the smaltz. He hits a characteristic groove in each song, which just continues on through, hooking you in. Together, the songs leave an impression of subtlety, individualism and toe-tapping rhythm, with lyrics that creep on up and get you thinking.

Niall has recently supported such acts as Simple Kid, The House of Love and Uh huh her, as well as touring the country with a full band line-up.

Lines & Space, Niall’s forthcoming album, will include After all that’s happened, Dawnin’ and Flames Away. And with Lennart Breternitz on bass and Barry J Smullen on drums, Lines & Space is set to offer more quietly brilliant gems.
