----------------
Eamon McGrath - https://eamonmcgrath.bandcamp.com/album/tantramar

With over 300 songs written and recorded, album of the year credits, and multiple continent-spanning tours, Eamon McGrath has developed a body of work that could rival that of any artist 15 years his senior. This is the house that punk rock built: a fierce DIY attitude and constantly-changing style has guided McGrath across the globe on countless tours, stories from which have been cultivated in innumerable journal entries and song lyrics. He is based in Toronto, Ontario.

With over 100,000 kilometres of highway, railroad and sky behind him, McGrath continues to blaze an impassioned trail of music that finds a sound and voice somewhere between punk rock, country, folk and rock and roll. Taking him to locations as geographically diverse as Reykjavik, Palma de Majorca, Warsaw, and everywhere in between, McGrath and his guitar represent a new dawn of singer-songwriting that's injected with the raw, fierce energy of punk rock: not in the sense of an acoustic performer hollering at the top of his lungs to simulate the energy of a full band, but instead something more rooted in a passionate commitment to your craft and a blind and zealous determination to your vision, wrapped in a sonic texture as rough as the road itself.

PRESS HISTORY:


“There’s an openness and honesty to the lyrics that belies his tender age and he can
carry a song with the slenderest of help…he sounds around double his age and he
sounds like someone who will still be worth listening to when he is forty two.”
- Americana UK


“The teenage kick in his raw Saturday night energy is even more authentically
prodigious…his rasping Waitsian voice suggests an unlived lifetime spent in low
company in smoke-filled bars. (4 stars)”
- Uncut Magazine


"More sonically varied than 2010's Peace Maker, the record namechecks influences
both figuratively (Neil Young, the Band) and literally (Ramones, Minor Threat) while
laying bare the close ties shared by folk and punk rock."
- Exclaim!


"McGrath has cast a wide and desolate musical landscape, formed both by the vastness
of his homeland and the more ragged rock and punk heard on both sides of the
Canada-U.S. border."
- Ottawa Citizen


"Haunting and wistful, the [album]'s simple melodies are deceptively catchy, and his
powerful, rough-hewn vocals and heartfelt lyrics make it one to hold onto."
- NOW Toronto


"More than anything, Young Canadians sounds world-weary, though certainly not tired,
despite the fact that McGrath is only 24. There is a latent maturity behind his
songs that belies his young age, signalling a shift in philosophy. He channels the
width and depth of his life experience, playing [in] bands and touring since he was
a teenager, in service of songs that not just sound heavy, but feel like they have
gravitas behind them: Young Canadians is an Important Record."
-BeatRoute
 
 Mickey Hayward of the Mormon Girls and Cope will be opening the show.
