Sonically speaking Regina Spektor has dinner with Portishead; Great White Lies sound resides in the alley on the way back. Jazz and dark funky soul, permeate through their inventive sound.
From the release of their critically acclaimed debut ep, winning VAI Song of The Year, Great White Lies have grown from strength to strength. Their music has taken them across Ireland, LA & Canada. Gig highlights; Stendhal, YouBloom, supporting Hannah Peel and Feeder with appearances on RTE and BBC television and radio.
The debut album “Chrysalis” is an exploration of creator Siobhán Shiels’ psyche and her interpretation of the world around her. Her music combines her activism, love of jazz, soul and pop and a sprinkling of madness. She introduces a ‘Crankie’, (an old Appalachian storytelling art form, a long illustrated scroll is wound onto two spools. The spools are placed in a box with a viewing screen. The scroll is hand-cranked depicting images and a narrative to the music) alongside some beautiful light installations this promises to be an audible and visual feast.
