Master & Dog
Belfast, County Antrim
The Belfast 5 piece have just finished work on their second studio album. They've been lucky enough to have Ken Nelson (producer to the likes of Coldplay, Badly Drawn Boy and Gomez) involved in the project which is due for release in August 2012.
Having toured Ireland extensively, the band are now looking to carry their success to the mainland UK.
Their debut album 'Dinosaur', released in 2010, has received rave reviews from national publications, declaring the band as 'BRILLIANT.. Dazzling' (Irish Independent), ‘Sublime’ (Irish Mirror), “Effortlessly monumental’ (AU Magazine)…& destined for greatness… it was also hotly tipped for a Choice Music Prize Nominationby Irish Music Journalist Tony Clayton Lea of The Irish Times who wrote: “an exceptional grasp of texture, tone and theme. A shoe-in for next year’s Choice Music Prize nominations list?”.
On the lead up to their debut album launch, they performed on Ireland's biggest and most well-known TV show: THE LATE LATE SHOW, achieving quite an accomplishment for an unsigned band doing it on their own.
They performed the song live, to over 20,000 spectators in the RDS arena, which was a high moment for the band in their short career to date and featured on an exclusive live web stream on Muzu.TV featuring Top talent in Ireland.
Their new single Canada has been making waves with plays on BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio Ulster and was chosen as single of the week on Phantom fm's ICON show.
