As part of a promotional tour in support of his new self-produced album, The Shadow Of An Empire, the successful young singer-songwriter plays two local dates during the coming week. This latest offering is the much anticipated follow up to his Mercury Prize and Choice Music Prize nominated debut album, The End Of History. If the Irish singer’s debut was the sound of the countryside, this record is the sound of towns; heartfelt and with a louder and more ragged edge. Perhaps not surprising, as it was written whilst touring worldwide for two years, and in particular across America, and as Fionn puts it “seeing the world, the bone structure, the pulp as a writer you hold up a mirror, its reflections become the work”.
