I Draw Slow get set for US tour

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - NEWS -

2013 is look­ing good for Dublin blue­grass troupe I Draw Slow. Af­ter a re­cent suc­cess­ful stint at a Nashville show­case fes­ti­val, the five­piece have had their sec­ond al­bum, Red­hills, picked up by US la­bel Pinecas­tle Records, af­ter its CEO spot­ted the video to their song Gold­mine this year. They’ve also signed a man­age­ment deal to co­or­di­nate an ex­ten­sive US tour next sum­mer, and have been in­vited by Cul­ture Ire­land to be part of the Ir­ish del­e­ga­tion at New York’s APAP pro­mot­ers’ con­fer­ence next month, along­side Spook of the Thir­teenth Lock and Young Folk.

“The night we signed the con­tracts at the kitchen ta­ble in my house was just sur­real – it only felt real when we got to Nashville in Septem­ber and met all the record-com­pany peo­ple there and they were not, in fact, wind­ing us up,” singer Louise Holden told The Ticket.
