Dear friends,

 

my name is Kevin Nolan from Dublin, Ireland. I released my debut album "Fredrick & The Golden Dawn" independently in 2014.

 

Now I am in 2017 releasing the deluxe edition of the album which includes two bonus live tracks plus a commentary for each track on the album. Release date July 1st 2017.

 

I would really appreciate it if you would post this on your site or social media. Also I'm available for interviews and would love the deluxe edition to be reviewed.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Some info about my work...

 

The music invites you to enter a world of wonder-tales. To get a taste of the album, check out my track "Blood Wedding"​. ​O​n​ the album​ I also duet with the fantastic and Choice Music award-winning Irish singer/composer Julie Feeney on my song "Aubade".

Find the full album here on (Bandcamp), I was recently on News Talk's The Green Room interviewed by Orla Barry and also Radio Nova, interviewed by John Bowe. Also there was a documentary made about me and the making of my debut album, which has been sent out to all the festivals and will be premièred in The Irish Film Institute.

 

The album got a 9/10 review from The Last Mixed Tape. And the album was awarded a 4.5 out of 5 from Pure M Magazine

 

Hot Press said: Nolan has carved out a world of strange characters and stunning sonic tapestries (...) 'Last Days Of Harry Carey' is a bombastic four minutes of blood and thunder that's worth the price of admission alone. The record takes the listener on a walk on the weird side, telling some diabolically good tales of love and death, spell-binding stuff.

"Nolan has carved out a world of strange characters and stunning sonic

"Fredrick & The Golden Dawn is a bold début release of immense character containing a large-scale undeniable theatricality to it that is simply stunning to behold.”  – The Last Mixed Tape

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"There’s no doubting Nolan’s ambition as he mixes gruff and declamatory Tom Waits/Nick Cave with softer instrumental interludes and a strain of theatrical musicality along the lines of Brecht/Weill/Lenya, as well as a rather odd but beautiful duet (Aubade) with Irish avant-pop singer Julie Feeney. (...) Impressive." Tony Clayton-Lea, The Irish Times

 

“Nolan's ability to bathe his voice in a variety of textures and styles and to emerge with clarity and precision, emphatically highlights the mastery of his skill.”  – Wonderful Good

 

“Nolan is also a multi-instrumentalist in the true sense of the word, incorporating everything from guitar and piano to orchestral sweeps with strings and flutes. But this is done through a subtle interplay and alternation rather than letting everything all fall in at once for a big, insurmountable wall of sound. This subtlety and restraint creates something far more elegant, and it is this elegance that provides a neat contrast to the often harsh, brutal and unsettling atmosphere that pervades the lyrics.”  – Golden Plec
