Dublin, Ireland’s I Draw Slow has already won the adoration of fans in their home country and North America by combining American folk and Irish storytelling traditions with close-harmony vocals, intriguing instrumentation and compelling subject matter. And on their debut with Compass Records, Turn Your Face to the Sun, released April 21, 2017, the band adds even more depth to their sound and songwriting, capturing I Draw Slow at their best — when they’re all together, separated only by air.
The band first drew attention beyond Ireland’s shores with their 2011 release, Redhills. Fueled by a prominent Spotify playlist placement and a video suggesting both 1890s bordello and 1920s speakeasy, the song “Goldmine” became the album’s breakout track. Their follow-up album, 2014’s White Wave Chapel, reached No. 2 on Ireland’s iTunes chart, driven in part by the video for “Valentine,” which featured Game of Thrones star Aidan Gillen.
In the meantime, they established themselves as festival standouts, appearing at MerleFest, Pickathon, Wintergrass, RockyGrass, Grey Fox, Red Wing, Edmonton Folk Fest and High Sierra Music Festival to name a few. They’ve also appeared on many radio shows, including the syndicated “Mountain Stage.”
“…it seems a matter of time before I Draw Slow will dominate the global folk scene.” – Peter McGuire, Huffington Post UK
“For an all-acoustic group, I Draw Slow sure do have a fully realized sound. May we recommend ‘Valentine,’ ‘Grand Hotel,’ and ‘Don’t She Run.'” – The Bluegrass Situation
“It’s as gritty as it is beautiful.” – CMT Edge
