Hurricane Music Company (HMC) presents Hourricane (Live Debut). Acclaimed singer-songwriter Paul Hourican takes to the atmospheric Boys’ School stage for one night only this December. Audiences are in for a treat as Hourican debuts a lot of new material under the new moniker ‘Hourricane’; ‘I see it as a stage name with the possibility of morphing into a band with a fluid lineup overtime’. Hourican has not performed live since Christmas 2015 for a special one off event whereby all monies raised from both ticket sales and CD sales were donated by Hourican to Focus Ireland.
In the past Hourican has garnered much acclaim in particular for his songwriting talents with The Irish Times praising Paul stating; ‘here’s a guy who can pull off the delicate Damien Rice (whom Hourican has supported) stuff alongside catchy pop fare grungy guitar blues’, whilst The News of The World put it succinctly by simply stating; ‘Paul Hourican Writes Great Songs!!!!’. Music critic 2UIBestow wrote ‘‘Wishing Well’ is the best EP I’ve reviewed this year while the title track is the best song from an Irish artist I’ve heard this year’.
‘Hourricane’ marks a new chapter in Hourican’s career and with a large and diverse original catalogue it was no surprise that following a deal with Warner Music and hit singles ‘One Step Forward’ and ‘All I Ever Wanted’ that Hourican was signed to NYC’s major publishing company Round Hill Music where Hourican was based for many years.
‘Hourricane’ is a moniker for Hourican to release records and to perform live shows and will get its first unveiling, in the form of a solo live acoustic performance on Tuesday 6th December 2022 in The Smock Alley Theatre with new recordings in the works set for release in 2023.
