Episode two of the BIMM Dublin Podcast is here! This instalment holds illuminating music and chat from students, graduates and lecturers of the college.
Featuring in this episode is the rising alt-folk singer-songwriter Maria Kelly (pictured). Having already impressed audiences on stages such as the National Concert Hall, Barbican, Other Voices and Electric Picnic, she’s one of the most well-regarded new voices in Irish songwriting. Ahead of graduating from BIMM she spoke to Danny Carroll about her musical journey so far.
We also meet former BIMM student Joe Furlong (pictured). Having studied bass at the college, Joe has gone on to tour the world playing with James Vincent McMorrow. Having recently returned home from 18 months on the road, Joe spoke to Danny about the impact BIMM made on his musical development. As well as speaking to students, we have an interview with vocal coach and tutor Tine Verbeke. The Belgian singer has been teaching at BIMM Dublin since the college opened, providing valuable insights on what it takes to be a top class vocalist.
