Singer-songwriter 'Stephanie Rainey is the Irish singer songwriter who made the impossible happen. With no money, no manager, no contacts and no carefully calculated social media campaign, she created a music industry stampede of epidemic proportions with just one heart-stopping song – ‘Please Don’t Go’. Within 24 hours of the song being uploaded onto Facebook, Stephanie – who had spent a decade trying to break into the music business - had more than a million hits (it quickly rose to five million views across both Facebook and YouTube), offers pouring in from US and UK record companies and world-wide media attention.' 

CIT Arts Office and CIT Students Union are delighted to welcome Stephanie Rainey for the second in the new "LIVE at the Rory Gallagher Theatre" gig series, 1pm on Wednesday 18th October.

TICKETS: €5 in advance online at NO BOOKING CHARGES

Dublin-based DELORENTOS are currently being hailed as one of Ireland’s finest and most imaginative bands.

The band drifted together in the usual fashion… inspired by boredom, creative energy, and a passion for music – obvious reference points are Pixies, The Cure, The Clash and Arcade Fire; more oblique influences slide in from most genres of music and virtually every decade from the 50s onwards. Over a period of time that saw others attempt to tie down a description of their sound, they holed up in the wilds of Portrane, Co Dublin and concentrated on writing songs, pure and simple. They had no interest in the frills and fripperies or the empty bombast that occupy other bands; for them it has always been about 4 people communing to harness honest emotion, fashion melodic hooks, and roll out infectious rhythms.

Suffice it to say the band’s self-released third album (and third consecutive Top 10 charting album in Ireland), Little Sparks (on their own Delorecords label) has been hailed as their best music to date. It is packed with a beautiful balance of gutsy, melodic guitar songs riddled with harmonies, pure pop moments, and more reflective, building soundscapes.

The Irish media greeted its release with a rake of 4 and 5 star reviews:
“The sound of a band who have found their musical and lyrical groove.” Irish Times
“One of the finest Irish releases of recent times!”
“Uniformly fabulous!”
“Last November’s EP hinted that Delorentos had some new tricks up their sleeve, but it didn’t fully prepare the listener for the quality and consistency of this hugely assured album.” Irish Independent

On the release of Little Sparks Delorentos set up a series of one-day pop-up shops in disused stores around Ireland to promote the record and meet and play acoustically to fans and newcomers alike; this on top of having self-produced a full-colour A4 magazine (themed around their favourite creative people in the arts in Ireland) to package the 4-track EP that preceded the album.

Meanwhile the band’s live shows in 2012 (both electric and acoustic) have seen them thrill crowds in Ireland, Spain and Germany with headline shows and festival appearances alike (including appearances at Electric Picnic (Ireland), Benecassim (Spain), The Reeperbahn Festival (Germany) SOS 4.8 (Spain), Santander (Spain), San Sebastian (Spain…..). And having learned a whole set of new instruments so that they could perform fully-fledged acoustic sets, the band have also continued to display the gentler, more reflective side of their musical nature with acoustic tours and one-off shows in churches and theatres wherever and whenever the opportunity arises.

Since 2007 Delorentos have released three critically acclaimed albums; 2007’s In Love With Detail, nominated for Best Album at both the Choice Music Prize and the Meteor Awards, 2009’s You Can Make Sound, which as well as hitting number 2 in the Irish charts won’s Album of the Year; and 2012’s Little Sparks. As well as their recording success, Delorentos have always been a touring band, and since 2007 have played extensively in Ireland, as well as the UK, Europe and North America.

The rest is yet to unfold, pay rapt attention!

Delorentos are Kieran, Ross, Ro and Níal.
