Leevy

Folk // Ballyvourney, Cork

Leevy (Amhlaoibh McSweeney) is a Songwriter/Multi-Instrumentalist/Producer from the Cork Gaeltacht.

"Blending folk instrumentation, electronic beats and touches and an uncompromising vocal delivery On the Wall of a Friend Buried in an Avalanche is an EP that demands repeated listens – one of the most interesting Irish releases of the year so far." - Not Bad.ie

His punk-infused Folk style began taking shape in his early teens, sitting in with Ballad groups in Cork City and playing self-penned punk songs in his garage with his peers. Throughout college he performed to hundreds nightly as a frontman/guitarist with session bands and original outfits, which allowed him to hone his performative presence, as he continued to produce his solo material.
