Maynooth, County Kildare
Formed in autumn of 2015 in Maynooth, Co. Kildare, the members of Hatchlings quickly turned friendship into a prolific creative collaboration. Hatchlings draw from their jazz, folk, R'n'B, rock and classical influences to create a fresh alternative sound. With performances ranging from lively electric sets in venues such as Whelans in Dublin, to impromptu acoustic appearances in intimate spaces like Shakespeare and Company in Paris, Hatchlings strive to deliver honest and original music to new audiences large and small. The birth of Hatchlings coincided with their founding of The Common Grounds Collective, a group dedicated to promoting a creative lifestyle and giving artists of all mediums a platform to share their work. Their involvement in Common Grounds Collective has resulted in collaborations with creatives from around the world. Hatchlings are Jamie Bishop, Conor Cunningham, Peter Kelly, Eamon Travers, and Darragh Brannigan. They are currently in the process of recording their debut EP, set to be released in 2017.
