Two exciting new acts team up for a double headline show upstairs in Whelans on the 11th of September!

In The Willows is set to release their album ‘Before Everybody Disappears’ in September.

Their EP and album were recorded under the watchful eye of Martin Murray in Ashville Studios. The sound created by In The Willows, sees the group blurring the lines between folk, alternative, pop and rock to create their own heart warming and aurally fulfilling sound.


HAWK which comprises of Julie, Matt, Chris, and Sam hail from various corners of the UK and Ireland. Their sound has been described by Subba Culture as a “fusion of ambience and power; fronted by a soaring, crackling vocal” Lead singer Julie, has been described as “a bit of the Bjork side of brilliant bonkers” (Artrocker), began collaborating with Matt Harris, as a solo project in 2012.

After a year of garnering plaudits on the acoustic scene, the band gained support from DJs such as Steve Lamacq and Tom Robinson (BBC6Music). The pair joined with Sam and Chris to form HAWK, adding new edge and expansion to their sound, while retaining the detail and delicacy of their acoustic roots. HAWK released their debut single ‘Take Off Your Suit’ in July 2013, to positive press.
