Scullion has always been a coming together of different musical strands and traditions. The mainstay of the band was and is Sonny Condell. Sonny writes music and songs that are powerful, poetic and soulful. He is one of Ireland’s most enduring creative artists and along with guitarist Robbie Overson and vocalist Philip King, creates the signature sound of Scullion.
Philip King of Scullion says, “Songs shift, change shape and come alive in magical ways when shared live. The electricity generated is palpable and energising. To head out on the road with these songs this Autumn, bring them to life and share them with audiences around the country is going to be a real delight. Can’t wait.”
Formed in the mid-1970’s, Scullion are revered and feted as one of Ireland’s most innovative, original and brilliant live bands. Their upcoming new record emphasises the band’s musical curiosity; like all of the band records, it breaks new ground.
“Scullion are an unusual collective: a trio of remarkable musicians who marry their keen appetites for pithy rhymes, unlikely melodic arcs and rhythmic complexity to exceedingly fine effect”– The Ticket, The Irish Times.
“Sell-out concerts confirm Scullion’s legendary status” – Siobhan Long, The Irish Times.
“Sonny Condell has had a prolific, if understated musical history, concerned more with his craft than career” – Tony Clayton Lea.
