Percussive folk-blues with a pop sensibility from the Irish singer-guitarist, soul-soaked Americana from Liverpool's RV and wry folk-pop from SOSL.
'My Friend Marx' is Marc O'Reilly's debut album, which has already created a stir in his native Ireland.
Marc's album is US and UK inspired folk'n'blues with African percussive rhythms and this Irish songster's sound is right there between old American folk-blues and The Black keys, Andy McKee and Tom Waits - and the singer-guitarist has a reputation as a spellbinding live performer.
"A wonderful album" - THE IRISH TIMES
"... Robert Vincent, the searingly honest Liverpool singer-songwriter whose mix of folk, rock and country is like a Mersey Van Morrison or a Scouse Springsteen...
Rob Vincent's songs are compassionate and perceptive. There's a wild evocation of the fact that every life is lived in the eye of a storm on the blues-blazing 'Riots Cry', and forgiveness for former friends who've let you down in 'How Do You Sleep'. There's an elegy for the wasted opportunities of a dead relationship, where your partner can't change, in the plangent, Lennonesque 'Second Chance'."
- Andrew Harrison, Q MAGAZINE

Euan writes songs about how the biggest things are wrapped up in the smallest. Sosl have released one EP 'The Boy's got Prospects' on Jellyfish records.
"With his Scottish twang and heart attached to plaid sleeves you'll shed a beer glass full of tears to his beautifully crafted songs." - PLAN B
"Gentle and uncluttered, but entirely self-assured folkish songcraft with a narrative, confessional bent." - TIME OUT
