At the beginning of this year I was picked out by the Irish Times as one of the 10 acts to watch for 2012.  You can read what Jim Carroll wrote below…

The Irish Times, 30/12/2011

“Now signed up with the Fence Collective in Scotland, who will release his debut album God Damn You Mountain in spring 2012, singer-songwriter Seamus Fogarty is a no-nonsense operator with a fine handle on strong, melodic, powerful folk, country and blues.

The Mayoman’s hook-up with the Fence crew came about through support slots with James Yorkston and appearances at the collective’s Home Game festivals, but chances are you’ve also come across the well-travelled Fogarty at a venue near you over the years. One to watch with interest in the coming months. “

Jim Carroll, Irish Times

“I can’t quite describe his music … it’s an ethereal collage of banjo, acoustic guitar, violin, shakers all thrown into a washing machine and cut up with samples and weird noises.  But much better than that description”

Johnny Lynch, Fence Records

“lilting, off-kilter loveliness
