Here at Indie Music we love a full length album that brings us on a story throughout. Tony Tyrrell’s conviction delivers this and more on his debut, so much so that we give it an 8/10 due to it’s diverse range of styles and introspective lyricism. More info below!
Not very often does an artist cut through the noise, but Dublin’s own Tony Tyrrell has shown that following your heart, always pays off. As he closes in on the release of his debut album conviction on the 12th of August, he reflects on how he got to this point and the adventure ahead. He has had a varied musical career, including classical, big band jazz, folk, and indie-folk music. But now, as a singer-songwriter, he’s carrying the weight on his own.
Including singles such as Mocking Bird, and Another Day, the debut LP conviction is already making an impact on the Irish scene with recent support from RTE Entertainment. Recorded and produced by the notable Tommy McLaughlin (SOAK, Villagers, Pillow Queens) in Attica Studios, Tyrrell is already drawing comparisons to Dire Straits, The National, and even Leonard Cohen, beautifully marrying their respective strengths into a carefully crafted group of songs, weaving between genres and keeping the listener engaged throughout as he walks us down the road of life, filled with love.
Speaking of the album and his experience, Tony says:
“This album is the realisation of a promise I made to myself a while back to get some of the many songs I’ve written out of my head and into the ‘wild’”.
