Train Room is the brainchild of Balla songwriter, musician
and producer Joe Monaghan. Train Room's first gig, at
Dublin's showcase Hard Working Class Heroes Festival
last October, and debut EP Delicate Bones, brought the
band's distinctive sound to general attention and significant
interest. Joe, who has been honing his musical skills
recording demos for the past seven or eight years (in
his studio in Balla), cites musical influences as broad
as Wilco, Whipping Boy, Kate Bush, Neil Young and Nina
Simone. But listen to Delicate Bones, and you'll hear
that Train Room makes music that is very much its own.
A band on the ascendant, and one to watch.

and sublime vocals

"Keep an eye out for this band
songs and arresting arrangements underpinned by his
perfectionist work ethic, convincing passion and quiet
confidence." - Ciara Moynihan, Mayo News.
