NOTIFY are a six-piece Irish-based contemporary instrumental ensemble. The band were formed in 2014 following the success of their debut 2013 album of the same
name. The band consists of Pádraig Rynne (Concertina), Tara Breen (Fiddle), Davie Ryan (Drums), Rory McCarthy (Piano & Rhodes), Adam Taylor (Electric Bass) and
Hugh Dillon (Acoustic & Electric Guitars).
NOTIFY seamlessly fuses a deep knowledge and respect for musical tradition with forward-thinking innovation in a tasteful way that connects with audiences worldwide. The formation of musicians with backgrounds in Traditional Irish music, Jazz, Folk and Popular music has naturally established a system of balance that instantly draws
listeners to their music.
To date they have released two full length albums and one EP. NOTIFY was released in 2013 as a solo project by Pádraig Rynne and it debuted at No 20 in the iTunes World music charts upon its release. Such was its popularity that a band was created to tour the album which has now grown into the six current members over time. In 2015, NOTIFY signed with world-famous American jazz label Ropeadope. The band’s second album, released in 2016, premiered at the No. 1 spot in the iTunes jazz charts and at No. 9 in the mainstream iTunes charts.
Well known for their High-Profile collaborations, NOTIFY has invited guests such as Seamus and Caoimhe Uí Fhlatharta, Mark Lettieri & Jason Thomas (4 time Grammy award winners with Snarky Puppy), Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh and Kris Drever to perform and tour with them in recent years.
The band delivers an evocative repertoire of original compositions produced with sensitive electronic overlays and inventive arrangements that are “cinematic in
scope” (New York Echo).
At the crossroads of a new movement in Irish music, “NOTIFY breathes new life into their music, with a musical tapestry that ranges from soft melodies to crashing crescendos” (The Irish Times).
With a new album entitled “Arineán” due for release in February 2024 and upcoming high profile collaborations with The Irish Concertina Orchestra, Bill Whelan, Cormac McCarthy and the MGCE Concert Orchestra, the bands star continues to rise and their constant musical evolution puts them at the fore of exploration into Irish music
