The Ralphs

BandAlternativePop

The Ralphs make energetic and catchy rock n'roll songs. That's the simple ethos of the four members, each of which possess differing and various musical tastes. The band draws influence from the many bands it calls friends in both Galway and Dublin as well as anything else that sounds good!

Biography

The Ralphs make energetic and catchy rock n'roll songs. They formed in November 2008 and since then have been priviliged to share the stage with the likes of Delorentos, The Saw Doctors, The Flaws, Ham Sandwich, FRED and Funeral Suits. 2009 has seen The Ralphs grow into a supurb live act, with nationwide appearances at venues such as Roisin Dubh, Whelans, TF Royal Theatre, Dolans Warehouse, Academy2, Twisted Pepper, Baker Place.
A debut E.P '21st Century Window' has just been released (September 2010) featuring a dirty garage rock sound. The Ralphs hope this release will help them take a step towards the next level, and become a household nationwide known act.

The band is made up of two sibings in Jamie and Leigh Ralph, both of whom are joined by their cousin Conor on lead guitar. Childhood friend Brian Ruane completes the line-up.

2010 has started well for the boys with January seeing them enter the running for Meteor's Most Promising Artist of 2010 Award.
