Gaelic Storm

 Big pipes at your service and then some when it comes to this band. If you need your St. Paddy's day party started, these guys have some fun lyrics to get the party started. The band is made up of Patrick Murphy, Steve Twigger, Ryan Lacey, Pete Purvis,  and Kiana Weber. They've been playing together for at least 17 years.

“I built myself a wall, I built it stout, I built it tall,
I stacked it strong and wide, I lived there deep inside.
One heartbreak at a time, around this heart of mine,
It’s not a wall that you can see, it lives inside of me.

Every hurt became a stone till I was all alone,”

stone by stone, gaelic storm

These guys have Irish and English roots but are now making their home here in the states. But they still visit their old stomping grounds looking for places and sounds to inspire them. They've opened for the Zac Brown Band and even the Goo Goo Dolls.

"Our music is Celtic and Irish, yes, but on this album, we see just how far we can take it.” Patrick Murphy says about the band's ability. Much of their music is like old memories where they grew up. Yet, they do create a rich texture of something old making it new again in their lyrics and melodies. Also fans love Murphy's storytelling in his songs. They are rather clever and will keep you smiling.

I just saw Gaelic Storm and holy shit they were amazing. I am so in love with them. They are one of the most fun bands to see live. They ended the show by going over to the bar, singing the last chorus and taking a shot of whiskey.-Seasons in Reverse
