Ross Breen released his self‐produced debut album When I Met The Devil in 2011, leading quickly to a number of hugely positive reviews:
“…one of the most accomplished albums to invade my space in a long time.” – 4.5/5 Jackie Hayden, Hot Press
“… fresh, inventive and daring… The Irish music scene’s best kept
secret? Maybe it’s time more people were told.” – 9/10 Drop-d.ie
In 2012, Ross was the winner of Ireland’s Best Unsigned Singer-Songwriter competition, as held by the Tom Dunne Show on Newstalk 106 FM. His song, Monet was chosen by a judging panel as the best entry from over a thousand submissions.
Ross’ work has been featured on a number of compilation albums. Most notably, his song Life Support was chosen as the title track for an album released by Delphi Records in aid of Pieta House, the suicide and self-harm prevention society.
Currently nearing completion of album two, titled New Born Vibrancy, the Kildare‐born songwriter has consistently impressed on the live stage, earning countless invitations as a special guest with the likes of Midlake, Bell x1, Sinead O’ Connor, Declan O’ Rourke, Damien Dempsey and Oscar‐winner Glen Hansard. As well as completing a successful east‐coast tour of the U.S. in late 2011, Ross Breen has built up a large following performing with his band at a number of Ireland’s premier festivals, including Electric Picnic, Indiependence, Hard Working Class Heroes, Life, Vantastival, Knockanstockan, No Place Like Dome, Jack of Diamonds and Spirit of Folk.
