The Lost Gecko
Cork, County Cork
THE LOST GECKO The Lost Gecko are a band hailing from Cork, Ireland, formed in 2006 by Scottish-born singer-songwriter Malcolm Urquhart. Having recorded 9 EPs, with cellist Elaine McCarthy and percussionist John O'Connor, The Lost Gecko have released a new album, 'Solasta', meaning 'Luminous' in Scots-Gael. They are currently recording their next album 'The Ghost That Minds the Crows', to be released in Spring 2019 at Claycastle Studios in Youghal with John Burke. Between Malcolm's soaring vocals, intense lyrics, vibrant guitar playing, Elaine's emotive cello lines and John's atmospheric and enriching use of percussion, The Lost Gecko's music is outside the box; an intricate weaving of sound, melody and rhythms with spontaneous bursts of exploratory improvisation. The Lost Gecko performed in the Landjuweel festival, Amsterdam 2018, as well as venues in Finland and Ireland as part of their summer tour. They have performed in Irish Festivals Bare in the Woods, Vantastival, Live on Air, It Takes a Village, Hillfest, First Fortnight. They were featured on the Irish Radio show Arena on RTE 1 and on Dutch live TV/radio in Leeurwarden. The new single Race Day was released on Jan 31st accompanied by the video the following day and performance on 96fm Radio 'The Art's House' Sunday 3rd Feb.
