Jealous of the Birds is the project of hotly tipped Irish songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Naomi Hamilton. Her debut album Parma Violets, released in May, matches introspective indie-folk with fiery post-punk. Beautifully crafted songs have been given contrasting arrangements, veering from stripped-down acoustic guitar to full-band indie-rock anthems, all overlaid by Naomi’s compelling layered vocals. Equal parts light and shade, the songs are poignant and vulnerable, bursting with honesty and raw passion. Describing her music she has said; “My only hope is that the songs sound like a real friend talking.”
Owen Lamont and his band second outing after a successful debut Empire show back in Sept 2017. which left people gasping for more of this talented bunch of folk. Be prepared for wonderful harmonies and searing guitar solos once again.
