Grotto get good buzz in US and gigs at home

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

The Guggen­heim Grotto are a Dublin-based trio who have flexed most of their pro­mo­tional mus­cles to date in the United States.

Aside from hugely pos­i­tive re­views from the US print me­dia for their Waltz­ing Alone de­but album, the band have also en­joyed place­ments on a rake of TV shows, in­clud­ing Brothers & Sis­ters, One Tree Hill and Men in Trees.

What’s helped their cause State­side is im­por­tant ra­dio sup­port from such taste-maker shows and DJs as Nic Harcourt at KCRW’s Morn­ing Be­comes Eclec­tic on the Santa Mon­ica-based KCRW and David Dye at Philadel­phia’s WXPN.

The band re­lease their sec­ond album, Happy the Man, in Septem­ber and play Ir­ish dates through­out Septem­ber and Oc­to­ber.
