"Ireland has a new funk pop star on its hands" Stuart Clark (Hotpress)
JJ Bloom, the alias of Irish songwriter/producer Conor Mc Quaid, has spent the last four years building up his home studio and writing music to prepare for his debut release, ‘Always You’. The track was written, produced and mixed by Bloom, and mastered by Fergal Davis (Muse, Republic of Loose, The Divine Comedy). The song is balanced between Bloom’s soul, funk and RnB influences. His debut release is complimented by a retro style video which was premiered by Hotpress. It also featured in several other major music sources; including Goldenplec.
Though only 24, Bloom has already proven himself to be an experienced songwriter. Some of his co-writes include, ‘I Won’t Be Leaving’ and ‘Supernatural’ with Jake Carter, and ‘Something New’ with French artist John Linhart.
His first collaboration release, ‘Right Here Beside Me’ by VINZE feat. JJ Bloom, has been very well received in the Dance music scene.
His upcoming release 'Cool Kids' is the start of a new chapter for JJ Bloom. It is the first single from his upcoming EP 'Floating', and an introduction to his new RnB/Soul sound.
