Myles Manley Live on The Co-Present
Info: As a side project to their 'Spotlight On' series The Co-Present and Paradoxical Recordings are proud to introduce our new 'In-Session' collaboration. We will be recording one track live videos for some of our favourite Irish artists filmed at various locations around Dublin. First up the incredible Myles Manley with a live rendition of the opening tracks to his spectacular 'More Songs' EP 'Pay Me What I'm Worth' Recorded on the rooftop garden of Odessa @ Dame Court Dublin 2. The original music video for this track was directed by renowned film maker Bob Gallagher who makes a special appearance as a backing vocalist for Myles. Check it out and stay tuned for more of The Co-Present In Session videos, coming soon.
I recall the one and only time I saw Sligo musician Myles Manley live at the Jack of Diamonds festival upstairs in Whelan's a few years ago, it was some line-up that night with Manley squeezed between Eliza Flume and Cork rockers The Vincent(s). All three went on from that night to domestic success, but I was particularly taken by Flume and Manley on the night, he was solo on acoustic guitar and his set was beyond intriguing, even he seemed slightly withdrawn from himself, he had a presence that wasn't really obvious but it was special nonetheless, at least as far as I was concerned. All this reminiscing is really a lead up to sharing another Myles Manley video below, my favourite track of his, because if you haven't come across him before, you should listen and enjoy, like a food you've never tasted before, either way, it'll be a new experience!
