JINX LENNON
Part Poet, Part Punk… All Genius! Jinx Lennon aka Free State Nova sinks teeth into the nitty gritty of existence with slices of piercing life enhancing sound to excavate under your epidermis and marinate your apathy filled brain cells.
Dundalk man Jinx is a prolific writer and performer who delivers masterpieces of gothic social commentary underpinned by droning acoustic guitars and stabbing electronica.

In an RTE Arts Lives special feature about Jinx Lennon, he was described as "timeless in the way Dylan is timeless' by Monaghan writer Pat McCabe, whilst Jack L said he was "One of the great artists". Anyone who has witnessed his life affirming highly charged live shows will surely agree.

ELEPHANT
"Irish Times Release of the Week" - Nialler9

"As natural and honest an album as we're likely to hear this year...Elephant's debut is something very special indeed." 9/10 - The Last Mixed Tape

"..with HyperGiant, Shane Clarke has given the tail end of 2015 an incredible and very welcome shot in the arm." 4/5 - State.ie

"What a little gem of an album." 10/10 - Unsigned & Independent Magazine

"...an exemplary landmark Irish recording" Remys Music & Film

Elephant, the musical vehicle of Dundalk based multi-instrumentalist Shane Clarke has, of late, taken a turn from the quiet looping soloist into a full band foray. Showcasing a dynamic retelling of the debut album that can get a little to a lot louder than what Elephant listeners might be used to while still retaining the nuance and intimacy of the solo set.
Songs wander from an instantaneous summery folk pop reminiscent of Badly Drawn Boy and Elliot Smith, to more mature meandering pieces with a deliberate deconstructed nature, akin to say... Broken Social Scene, Justin Vernon or Joanna Newsom. Elephant has rightly garnered much praise on the live front with his earnest vocal delivery and unique lyrical style capturing audiences and securing him performances with Martha Wainwright, BC Camplight and slots at most of the country's top festivals including Electric Picnic and Body & Soul and two trips to Dingles Other Voices music trail.
On the back of his critically lauded debut album "HyperGiant", Shane is already working on the follow-up, with the first single expected to be released this summer.
