Following a sustained period of writing and collaborating in Berlin there is much anticipation ahead of Shobsy releasing his new single in March. To coincide with his new single release Shobsy will play a headline show at the Workman’s Club, Dublin on Saturday April 20th.
SHOBSY’S first two solo releases ‘Vanity’ and ‘Driven’ were received exceptionally with support given both here at home and overseas including; EARMILK, PopMatters, Nialler 9, Hot Press, Today FM and Record Of The Day amongst others.
However, a performance on Ireland’s Biggest TV Show ‘The Late Late Show’ would lead to far reaching additional attention for this Dublin based singer, songwriter and live performer. Shobsy performed a special acoustic re-working of the Jimmy Somerville classic, Smalltown Boy on the show; vocals with piano accompaniment. It was sublime in its sentiment and delivery and the audience reacted; Shobsy’s Late Late Show version of Smalltown Boy went viral and clocked up over 100k views in 12 hours.

A remarkable live performer Shobsy sold out his first solo headline shows with MCD and recorded a version of ‘Bittersweet Symphony’ with the 23 piece RTE Concert Orchestra which was one of the highlights on ‘The Main Stage’, RTE’s flagship Summer Music TV show.
Fans of The Weeknd, Kanye West & Kavinsky are in for a treat as Shobsy’s new recordings in Berlin embodies each of them through the recordings genre-hopping rhythm, crossing the boundaries of synth pop into R&B.
This Dubliner’s natural vocal ability, showmanship yet grounded charismatic personable character has already gained
him a legion of fans amongst his industry peers and many industry media platforms also in his roles as former lead
vocalist in acclaimed rock group State Lights and now as a solo artist. We are so excited not just for you to hear his
new recordings but also for us all to watch where this superb artist takes us next.
