Roisin Ni Leathlobhair
These showcase events led to Roisin opening for many other indie acts in Dublin and Mullngar. In 2003 - 2004 these included The Aftermath (then called Cronin),Sean Needham,Nina Hynes,Ollie Cole,Alphastates and The Guggenheim Grotto. In late 2004 Roisin formed the band Oubliette with Conor Mc Cauley (Arrow In The Sky) and Daniel O'Brien (formerly of The Watchmen).Oubliette highlights include a support slot with Alphastates in The Stables,Mullingar in August 2005 and two gigs in Hughes,Mullingar (now Halifax) with local acts Triega and Cronin (now The Aftermath). Local journalist Ronan Casey wrote in the summer of 2005 that the band were an "impressive local outfit" and an "exciting prospect". Oubliette recorded a two track demo in 2005 entitled The Last Leaf.The band split soon after.
They remain in close contact,however,and occasionally still collaborate with each other on various projects. Roisin then spent the year living in Leipzig studying at the university there and writing many songs some of which will appear on her debut album (forecasted release date: September 2009.) On April 26th 2008 Roisin released her Debut E.P. - Maps Buried In Pockets which is now sold out. Roisin is currently working with a newly formed band - Roisin and The Beards. The live line up is as follows; Danny Lambert: percussion. Mark Noonan: lead guitar.
Danny Reilly: bass. Roisin:vox/rhythm guitar. Roisin and The Beards are currently gigging approximately once a month with the events team at Dublin Underground. A live highlight thus far being a 30 minute slot at Whelans of Wexford Street on July 26th 2008. Right now Roisin and The Beards are mainly focused on rehearsing and demoing new material in preparation for the recording of a new 5 track E.P which is expected to be released in March 2009.
A newly recorded version of their song 'Travels' (recorded by Andrew Rooney at Red Lab Studios) is due for promotional release in the UK and Ireland in November 2008 on a 10 track white label compilation.
