At the crossroads of a new movement in Irish music, NOTIFY breathes new life into their music and song, with a musical tapestry that ranges from soft melodies to crashing crescendos.
Centred around the wizardry of Concertina player and electronic sound designer Pádraig Rynne, the band is anchored by Cillian King on Guitars & Vocals, Eoin Walsh on Electric Bass, Davie Ryan on Drums and Cormac McCarthy on Piano and Keyboards. The band delivers an evocative repertoire of original melody compositions and songs, produced with sensitive electronic overlays and inventive arrangements that are cinematic in scope (New York Echo).
NOTIFY seamlessly fuses a deep knowledge and respect for musical tradition with forward thinking innovation in a tasteful way that connects with audiences worldwide. The formation of musicians from backgrounds in Jazz, Traditional Irish, Electronic, Pop and Funk music has naturally established a system of balance that instantly draws listeners to the music. NOTIFY released their debut album in late 2013. This self titled album debuted at no 20 in the iTunes World music charts upon its release. The album was well received by the media and press worldwide and resulted in a number of high profile TV and radio performances. In 2014 the band were commissioned by the Arts Council of Ireland to collaborate with well known Irish singer Pauline Scanlon on a five date Irish tour. They released a four track EP to coincide with this.
Now here's a crossroads that's not so crowded, but still bustling with intriguing
possibilities. This is a place where Irish traditional, jazz and electronica don't so much
fuse as fizz. - Siobhan Long (The Irish Times).
The group remains an incredibly forward looking and musically supple outfit that
makes music which plays at the boundaries of style and genre. - Daniel Neely (The
Irish Echo NYC).
NOTIFY's fearless approach to experimentation has produced yet another beautiful
record. In Concept effortlessly couples jazz and traditional music genres. The
possibilities offered by such musicianship and passion for music are endless. - Lynette
Fay (BBC Radio)
