After a barnstorming performance at Electric Picnic in 2012, Darragh launched his eagerly anticipated second album, “Whisper & Silent Screams”. “Whispers & Silent Screams” contains 14 songs all written, played, arranged and produced by Darragh. It was recorded by Colin Scallan at The New Room and Ivan Jackman at Silverline Studios. Mixed by Ivan Jackman and Mastered by Richard Dowling.
It's the follow up to his critically acclaimed debut “The Finish Line” which was released in 2010. That album was Pick Of The Fortnight in Hot Press and also led to Darragh being named Male Solo Artist Of The Year by Jackie Hayden in the same magazine. The Sunday Tribune called him “a talent to be reckoned with” when naming him in their Top 5 Hottest Acts for 2011.
