Single: Son of the Hound - I.O.U

Son of the Hound IOU

Son of the Hound - I.O.U

Info: 'McCullagh, from the Gaelic 'Mac Cu Ulaidh' meaning Son of The Hound of Ulster'.

Singer/songwriter Michael McCullagh is a rolling stone. Forever in motion, constantly evolving. He’s been spotted as a free-wheelin’ busker around European cities, fronting classic 60’s influenced rock bands in grubby underground bars in Belfast and playing stripped back trad sessions in the snugs of stout pubs in the west of Ireland. He’ll play with whoever is plugged in, whoever is looking a way out, or wherever there’s a listening ear. 

Omagh solo act Son of the Hound is one of those song-writers who is full of surprises and impulsively goes with whatever sound is swirling around his head at any given time. In stark contrast to his excellent previous single, 'Pilgrim', new release 'I.O.U' swaps the emotional mood of that folk-based track for a more buoyant style that incorporates a swathe of early-60's based sounds from rockabilly, honky-tonk, country and a delightful Stones' blues-rock guitar solo. Never a dull moment when the Son of the Hound is in town.
