Seafoam Green - Martin’s Garden - LP & CD Album
Seafoam Green return with their second studio album - Martin's Garden.
Their debut was a collaboration with Rich Robinson, of the Black Crowes. Once again, Seafoam Green are collaborating with the artists residing in their own record collections - inspirations steeped in the culture of the Southern States, with their inimitable collision of Irish Roots and Southern American rock and soul.
How did these two Irish rock n’ rollers go from talking about the music they love, to playing with the musicians who made it? It all comes down to the songs they are writing. Tyler Greenwell - founding member of Grammy Award winning Tedeschi Trucks Band - got wind of Seafoam Green preparing to make their next record, and made it known that he wanted to be involved. It wasn’t long before the ensemble were out recording in Atlanta, USA.
Recent single ‘House on the Hill’ offers early indication of what can be expected - with the thumbprints of Tedeschi Trucks Band’s influence on the producer’s console, topped by the inimitable trademark vocal interplay between O’Grady and McDermott Long. A unique take on a classic sound.
"Seafoam Green are Irish songwriting duo Dave O'Grady and Muireann McDermott Long. The pair specialise in what we now call Americana. If you want blues, gospel, and folk, they’ve got it, but what they’ve actually perfected across two albums and countless live shows is the sound of a glorious rock n’ soul revival. Seafoam Green even find room for a dash of Dublinese, just to remind people where they’re coming from. Heavy hitters like Rich Robinson, Derek Trucks, and Tyler Greenwell have all chipped in, and it’s not hard to hear why, for this is thrilling, vital, and – that word again - soulful music."
