Dublin, Ireland’sI Draw Slowhas already won the adoration of fans in their home country andNorth America by combining American folk and Irish storytelling traditions with close-harmonyvocals, intriguing instrumentation and compelling subject matter. And on their debut with CompassRecords,Turn Your Face to the Sun,releasedApril 21, 2017, the band adds even more depth totheir sound and songwriting.

This time out, sibling vocalists Dave and Louise Holden, with Dave on acoustic guitar, Adrian Harton violin, Colin Derham on clawhammer banjo and Konrad Liddy on double bass, chose to color their blend of vocals and strings with brass and percussion. They also chose to address a theme of loss, through lyrics that examine both the darker side of human nature and the goodness of redemption.

The band first drew attention beyond Ireland’s shores with their 2011 release,Redhills.Fueled by aprominent Spotify playlist placement and avideo suggesting both 1890s bordello and 1920sspeakeasy, the song “Goldmine” became the album’s breakout track.Their follow-up album, 2014’s White Wave Chapel,reached No. 2 on Ireland’s iTunes chart, driven in part by the video for “Valentine,” which featuredGame of Thronesstar Aidan Gillen.

In the meantime, they established themselves as festival standouts, appearing at MerleFest,Pickathon, Wintergrass, RockyGrass, Grey Fox, Red Wing, Edmonton Folk Fest and High SierraMusic Festival to name a few. They’ve also appeared on many radio shows,including the syndicated“Mountain Stage.”

Their energetic live performances and inventive combination of Appalachian and Irish roots musichas drawn so much support, they were able to completely crowd-fund the recording ofTurn YourFace to the Sun—whichthey tracked over one weekend, camping out in a house in County Wicklow,Ireland, with engineer Brian Masterson (U2, Van Morrison). It captures I Draw Slow at their best—when they’re all together, separated only by air.

Speaking of air, first-time I Draw Slow listeners ought to be warned: This band very well might take their breath away.  And they won't even mind.
