Critically acclaimed roots five piece I Draw Slow are coming back to the US to launch their fifth and most exciting album to date. The band have consistently redefined roots music over four celebrated albums: their last cut, Turn Your Face to the Sun, reached number 1 in the Irish Independent Chart.
Their songs are streamed in the millions worldwide and the band are in tour demand in the US, UK and across Europe. Their distinctive music has been licenced for film, TV and advertising and is widely covered and recorded by other artists. The band recently appeared in a major Kerrygold butter commercial which featured one of their songs, Swans.
They are also known for their high production videos featuring actors such as Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones) and award winning directors Hugh O’Conor (Three Musketeers) and Ronan Fox.
I Draw Slow is helmed by siblings Dave and Louise Holden and is signed to Nashville label Compass Records, a leading independent US label that nurtures and celebrates roots and folk music.
I Draw Slow write unique songs that inspire love and loyalty (and several tattoos). Fans regularly travel hundreds of miles to see their dynamic, emotionally-charged performances that captivate audiences with exquisite balladry, then bring them to their feet with high energy, bass heavy dance trad. Their new album moves once again into new roots territory, employing traditional string instruments to deliver contemporary themes and alt-folk grooves.
I Draw Slow have fully established themselves on the North American acoustic music scene, touring the U.S. and Canada multiple times a year and appearing regularly at some of the US’s biggest and most iconic roots festivals including Pickathon, Merlefest and Grey Fox.
Locked down for the last two years they have completed their most ambitious album to date, which was released on Compass Records on September 9 2022.
