The Draft are a five piece Dublin based rock band who have played extensively in Dublin with gigs at venues like Whelans, Crawdaddy, The Hub & The Sugar Club and are building an ever increasing following and a reputation as a superb live group.

Old school friends Karl McHugh and Lucan local John Lynagh (bass) played together in several bands before forming The Draft. Lynagh was given the job of "rounding up" the rest of the group members - Ian O'Connor (drums), Dave Kilcline (guitar) and Lewis Brien (keyboards).

Speaking of the band's line-up, Karl says: "I think we're all good musicians. I think we're original; we're not stuck to any one style..."

"There's just a very wide variety of tastes in the band and because we're all involved in writing songs...everybody gets to bring a little bit to the finished sound."

Their first demo received airplay on Today FM, 2FM and local radio as well as numerous press reviews. They have recently finished recording their debut EP, V.2.6, which was launched in February to a packed house in Crawdaddy, Dublin. They look forward to recording a debut single in the near future.
