Bio: Eoin Glackin was born in Dublin in 1986, and has been singing and playing guitar in bands since he was 15. His first single was 'Brian Murphy', a song that dealt with the subject of a young man's death after a street fight. Released independantly, it was banned from most Irish Radio, it's subject matter deemed too controversial for the airwaves! Hacked off at the worlds failure to recognise talent when it heard it, a then 21 year old Eoin headed for London and the rock n roll dream. He kept himself alive with a succesion of jobs ranging from the mundane (barman) to the mad (indoor boomerang demonstrator), before a combination of luck and "being a pushy wee shite" (his words) found him introduced to producer John Reynolds (Sinead O'Conner, Damien Dempsey, U2). This resulted in the recording and release of his first internationally released single 'Still', and brought him to the attention of IRL.
Eoin then embarked on an intensive round of writing, rehearsing and touring with his band throughout Ireland and the UK. Support slots with acts such as Damien Dempsey, The Coronas, the Blizzards and legendary Texan songwriter Sam Baker started to garner a following, and late last year Eoin felt the time was right to go back into the studio. He recorded his debut album with renowned producer Ian Grimble (Manic Street Preachers, Travis, Texas) in the famous Church Studios in London's Crouch End. The album captures Eoins straight ahead yet unique commentary on life, the universe and everything, and strives to maintain a long tradition of great celtic songwriters.
