Hi/Lo & the Tribes is a music-centered collaborative art platform based in Derry/Donegal by local artist, Míchéal McCay.
‘To engage in music-focused, creative art projects with local artists and fellow creatives in order to expose local talent to a wider audience. The platform aims to engage and inspire the local music scene while aiding in the development of successful careers for all involved.’
Hi/Lo & the Tribes started their journey last year with a halloween cover of ‘Zombie’ by Jamie T. The cover featured local musicians Míchéal McCay (Foreign Owl), Conor Hegarty (Squak) and Ruari Hegarty (No Collusion). Hi/Lo then commissioned 3 paintings from talented local artists Matthew Donnelly, Nirdosh and Siânna Lafferty which are available to view on the platform’s social media. This leads to the recent debut release, ‘Teens Don’t Write Diaries Anymore’.
