Eoin Glackin releases self-titled album in the UK
‘You can’t stay at home and be a songwriter.’ Kris Kristofferson knows a thing or two about being successful in the music business and it’s insight such as this which encouraged Eoin Glackin to leave his native Dublin at 21 years old and head to London to pursue his dream.
After coming to the attention of record executives, Eoin recorded his debut album ‘Not Lost’ which released in Ireland in 2011. His follow up album ‘Rain Finally Came’ released in Ireland a couple of years later and since then, through hard work, lots of radio play and by supporting artists such as Joan Armatrading, Shovels & Rope, Beth Orton and The Darkness, Eoin has firmly established himself as one of Ireland’s most promising singer songwriters.
Eoin is often described as possessing wisdom beyond his years and his new album delivers insightful, thought-provoking songs delivered with boyish charm, Irish wit and an unparalleled knack for storytelling. There’s a Waterboys vibe to his music, which I really like. It’s instantly likeable stuff and I really respect guys like Eoin who get off their backsides, work hard and earn success.
So, have a look at Eoin’s video for ‘Hello Caroline’ as a little taster of what to expect. And yes the new album is available on iTunes, so you know where to head next!
