Cormac Looby is an Irish singer-songwriter from Co. Tipperary, currently based in Galway. Having honed his craft busking on the streets of Galway, he is now a regular on the music scene in Ireland, having previously had a spell in Manchester UK.
With influences ranging from Springsteen to Sam Fender and Mick Flannery, he combines elements of folk and pop music, with introspective and honest song-writing. His second single 'Feel Good' comes out 6th November, you can pre-save it HERE. Cormac recently won 'Foley's Sitting Room Sing-Off' - entertaining music lovers weekly during lockdown. He also got to the final of Four Star Pizza's 'Star Nation' competition.
Cormac's debut single ‘I Don’t Need Your Love’, combined a raw, acoustic foundation with elements of soulful folk and was recorded at SHED studios. The song's about the feeling you get when someone's sick of your s**t. It was released on all platforms in 2020 to much ado. The tune independently amassed 10,000+ streams across all platforms, was played on BBC Radio 6 with Tom Robinson, BBC Introducing and was playlisted on RTE Radio 1 (Ireland's biggest radio station). This is on top of radio plays from: Spin South West, Beat 102-103, Radio Ashford, North Manchester FM, Celtic Music Radio, Midlands Radio, Abbey104, Salford City Radio, The Flash, RedFM, Radio Kerry, Radio Sligo, TippFM, Forest FM, Radio Leyland & Dundalk FM.
