James Vincent McMorrow - National

Info: There is less that one week until Repeal Project present Together For Yes at The Olympia. This Wednesday, 2 May a host of incredible Irish artists will gather together for one night of amazing music in order to raise funds for Together For Yes.

Acclaimed Irish band Delorentos’ determined rise has been a wonderful chaos – break-ups, labels collapsing, reformations and critical awards, worldwide tours and packed houses from Mexico City to Moscow. In a world where so much emphasis is placed on “brand new” they continue to revel in writing albums and playing live shows that are ever more passionate, raw and exciting! Their 5th studio album True Surrender is out tomorrow. 

Also joining this stellar bill are Little Green Cars. These Irish indie-rockers have made two acclaimed albums, 2012’s debut Absolute Zero, and the follow-up, Ephemera, in 2016. They are currently working on their third collection of songs. The band feature two lead singers, Faye O’Rourke and Stevie Appleby, and their songs are hallmarked with a dark lyrical essence. They have headlined concerts all over the world including a special open-air event at Iveagh Gardens.

Loah is Sallay Matu Garnett, a singer songwriter of Sierra Leonean / Irish origin who grew up between Maynooth and West Africa. Loah is an artist on the absolute rise! Her unique blend of folk and soul, which she calls ArtSoul, has been blowing audiences away. She has released three stunning singles/videos, performed at Electric Picnic, Body&Soul, Longitude, Cork Jazz Festival, Sounds From A Safe Harbour, and the Dublin Fringe Festival, amongst others. She released her debut EP This Heart last summer to critical acclaim.
