Ned Doheny

Connolly’s of Leap presents… Ned Doheny Friday, July 26th Tickets €10 + booking fee _____________________________________________ A key member of the California soft rock scene in the 70’s, Ned Doheny reached cult status thanks to his 1976 album Hard Candy which featured anthemic numbers such as ‘Get It Up For Love’, ‘To Prove My Love’ and ‘A Love Of Your Own’. Ned Doheny is an American singer, songwriter and guitarist from Malibu, California who has recorded five albums as well as performed on many albums by other artists including Don Henley and Glenn Frey of the Eagles, J.D. Souther, Linda Ronstadt, and Jackson Browne, with whom he was once in a band. Ned Doheny now lives in Silverlake, California. One of his earliest compositions, “On and On,” was recorded by Dave Mason in 1971.[3] Doheny, Mason and Cass Elliott were in a trio for a time. Doheny was the first artist signed to David Geffen’s Asylum label, which produced his first album Ned Doheny in 1972. His label mates included Jackson Browne, Joni Mitchell, David Blue and other West Coast musicians of the day. Doheny toured multiple times with a band made up of several studio musicians. His second album Hard Candy was released by CBS in 1976. It included the composition “A Love of Your Own,” which was covered by the Average White Band. Chaka Khan also had a hit with a Doheny composition, “What Cha’ Gonna Do For Me.” Other Doheny songs such as “I’ve Got Your Number”, “Get It Up For Love” and “To Prove My Love” have all charted in the US as well as the UK and Japan. His third CBS album Prone was recorded in 1977. Doheny’s next album, Life After Romance, was released in Japan in 1988 due to his popularity there. Between April…

Mick Flannery

Connolly’s of Leap proudly presents.. Mick Flannery Sunday, July 28th Doors : 7pm Tickets : €23 inc booking fee ________________________________________ MICK FLANNERY A cliché has it that you have to beware of the quiet ones, because most of the time their voices speak sharper and with more range than the loudmouths. Every cliché, however, has a grain of truth in it, and so it’s fair to say that while County Cork singer-songwriter Mick Flannery is outwardly reserved, his songs are fluent in expressing layered aspects of the human condition, its flaws, triumphs, and general uncertainty. An award-winning, double-platinum selling artist, Mick Flannery is on the brink of releasing not only his self-titled sixth album, but also overseeing the worldwide premiere of the stage musical, Evening Train (so named after his 2007 debut album). He began to write songs as a teenager in his home of Blarney, County Cork. As musical influences from albums by the likes of Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Joni Mitchell and Tom Waits seeped into his creative DNA, Mick absorbed, learned and honed the craft that would send him on his way into the world. The path was smoothed somewhat when, at the age of 19, he became the first Irish songwriter to win the Nashville-based International Songwriting Competition. By the time he turned 21, he had signed to a major label and released his debut album. With his latest release, Mick touches on loose themes of ambition and the search for a meaningful life in the context of a musician’s sometimes feckless and dysfunctional lifestyle. The central character, he reveals, is someone like him, “although this person achieves more notoriety than I have. He is properly famous, and he has to deal with that.” The loose theme is just that, however. “I’m not going to hammer…

Brian Deady

Connolly’s of Leap proudly presents… Brian Deady Sunday, August 18th Tickets : €23 + booking fee ____________________________________ Brian Deady had been something of a well kept secret at home in Ireland until his song Clap Both My Hands became one of the most played Irish songs of 2016 and reached No.1 in the Spotify UK Viral charts . His recent single ‘Get on My Knees’ has also featured in the hit American TV show ‘Lucifer’. Conjuring up strong gospel influences, at times the Irishman sounds more like he was raised in the Deep South than as one of 10 kids in Cork and his rich, soulful voice comes with a contemporary R&B edge. Here is an artist you can believe in and connect with. In a world where authenticity counts for so much, you’ll hear that Brian means and feels every word.
