Irish Acts Set to Thrill at SXSW


2003 proved to be an incredible year internationally for emerging Irish acts and it is already looking like 2004 will eclipse that.

Major breakthroughs in the US for The Thrills, Damien Rice (US Shortlist Music Prize 2003), The Frames and Gemma Hayes (UK Mercury Prize Nominee 2002) has firmly put Ireland in the spotlight as the source of some of the best international newcomers.

The South By Southwest Music Festival (SXSW) is the largest music industry exhibition in the US and takes place in March each year, attracting hundreds of performers from around the globe all seeking to make their mark on the American music market.

The SXSW festival will provide each of the Irish acts attending with a golden opportunity to showcase to some of the most influential decision makers in the global music industry.

To help raise the profile of the Irish artists attending The Irish Music Rights Organisation (IMRO) will present an Irish Showcase at Maggie Mae’s on Austin’s famous 6th Street, on Thursday 18th March. The showcase will feature some of Ireland’s finest emerging songwriting and performing artists: Bellx1, Turn, Stars of the City, David Hopkins, Mixtwitch.

“The last twelve months have been really exceptional for Irish artists internationally, and justifiably so given the current creative output and confidence levels amongst many of the acts coming through at the moment”, stated Adrian Gaffney, Chief Executive IMRO, following the announcement of the Irish Showcase this week.

With international attention rapidly focusing in on the new wave of emerging Irish acts the IMRO showcase is expected to attract a number of key players from the A&R, publishing, record label and recording communities.
