Mellowtone Records is delighted to introduce the soulful psych-folk of Seafoam Green.

Following years of solo tours and honing his craft on both sides of the Atlantic, now Dave O’Grady steps out the shadows to take his rightful place at the centre of the stage.

The genesis of Seafoam Green followed a chance meeting with Rich Robinson during recording sessions in Nashville. After O’Grady was invited by Robinson to open his US and European tour dates, the pair began writing and recording in earnest, leading to their collaboration on the stunning debut album 'Topanga Mansion’.

Rich Robinson: "We made an interesting, lush, authentic record in a great studio with some great players. It's definitely worth checking out."

Seafoam Green continues in lineage of the great Irish storytellers, an engaging and passionate narrative style with a sound that has been described as “Ray Lamontagne fronting The Allman Brothers”. As a solo artist O’Grady’s talents have taken him around the world and back again, with a growing army of admirers in the US, Australia and Europe, not to mention his current base in Liverpool.

Now is the time for Seafoam Green present their debut opus; an international collective with an international sound. The band embark on a tour of US during September and October with the long-awaited ‘Topanga Mansion' album and UK dates to follow this November.

Dave O’Grady: "I’m really happy to wait until the age of 28 to release my debut LP. I have toured, and I have learnt some valuable lessons. Now I can finally say what I want to say. I’m not concerned with chasing, I want to lead. In this internet age, people are too often concerned with rushing around... Just because you can, doesn't mean you should."
