Ross Breen released his self‐produced debut album When I Met The Devil in 2011, leading to a number of hugely positive reviews:
“…one of the most accomplished albums to invade my space in a long time.”
– 4.5/5 Jackie Hayden, Hot Press
“… fresh, inventive and daring… The Irish music scene’s best kept secret? Maybe it’s time more people were told.”
– 9/10 Drop-d.ie
More recognition arrived in 2012 when, from over a thousand submissions, Ross was awarded the title of Ireland’s Best Unsigned Singer-Songwriter by Newstalk FM’s the Tom Dunne Show. Shortly thereafter, his song Life Support was chosen as the title track on a compilation album released nationally by Delphi Records in aid of Pieta House, a suicide and self-harm prevention society.
His second album, New Born Vibrancy, is now completed and due for release in 2014. In addition to his recording achievements, the Kildare‐born songwriter has consistently impressed on the live stage, earning countless invitations as a special guest with the likes of Bell x1, Sinead O’ Connor, Declan O’ Rourke, Damien Dempsey and Oscar‐winner Glen Hansard. As well as completing a successful east‐coast tour of the U.S. in late 2011, Ross Breen has built up a large following performing with his band at a number of Ireland’s premier festivals, including Electric Picnic, Body And Soul, Indiependence and Hard Working Class Heroes.
