Cormac Looby is an Irish singer-songwriter from Co. Tipperary, currently based in Manchester. Having honed his craft busking on the streets of Galway, he is now a regular on the Manchester music scene.
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.
Cormac's debut single ‘I Don’t Need Your Love’, combines a raw, acoustic foundation with elements of soulful folk and was recorded at the prestigious SHED studios. The song is about the feeling you get when someone's sick of your s**t. It was released on all platforms on 28th February.
The tune has already independently amassed 6000+ Spotify streams. It was recently played on BBC Radio 6 for Tom Robinson's BBC Introducing slot and is also 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.
With an old school feel and Paolo Nutini sensibility, those big music influencers are all happy to be featuring Cormac Looby!
With an EP to come later this year, 2020 should be an exciting time for this guy.
