OUR KRYPTON SON
The folk alt-rockers
Did the local music you grew up with have any effect on your own material? Not really, to be honest! The type of stuff I write is generally influenced by different artists from all over the place. I am a fan of Neil Hannon, though. What’s your favourite thing about Derry? It’s such a musical town! It’s a great pleasure to be a part of the network of musicians, too. Your favourite venue? Sandinos back bar is a favourite. An Culturlann’s a great spot to play, and there’s a new venue at the moment called the Glassworks. It’s a beautiful old building that used to be a church, then a library, and it’s gonna host some great gigs, including Other Voices. What are your plans for 2013? We have some big gigs in mind for next year, some festivals, and maybe some interesting musical collaborations. And album number two! I reckon it’s gonna be a pretty good year.
