We’re taking a trip up to Northern Ireland and saying hello to the largest city there known as Belfast. Here, we found some awesome users, and had trouble choosing only five! So if we missed you, join the group linked at the end of the post.
Young solo musician, Rachael Boyd, never plans what she’s going to record, so what she uploads to SoundCloud is almost all improvised. Most of it’s pretty experimental but some tracks have a hint of folk and classical music in them. Hear the tracks she’s come up with thus far and give her a follow on the ‘Cloud.
Joe McGrady is a guitarist, singer, and songwriter. He first picked up a guitar when he was 8 years old and has been playing it ever since! He plays and writes many different styles of music including: rock, blues, acoustic, folk, and pop. You can hear what he’s got on SoundCloud below.
Born as a natural performer, Mama Kaz has been entertaining since her early years. She’s got talent and a lot of personality that she wants to share with you! She writes her songs herself and has a band performing along her side. You can hear these tracks at the link below or in the red player!
Put Beyond Use
Student and musician based in Belfast, Gerard Lenaghan is a very active SoundCloud member whose profile description simply states: “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.” Not entirely sure what that means but his tracks are dark and mysterious — just like his profile picture. Hear for yourself!
Andrew Wightman (EV1LR1V3R) likes to make dark music (much like Put Beyond Use above) and explore themes of unholiness. But when he has some vanilla coke, the tracks become a bit happier. So there’s a mix of happy music inspired by vanilla coke and dark music inspired by…well, darkness.
