Emmett Collum (percussion), Mark Prunty (bass, guitar/vocals), Podge Gill (guitar/vocals), Ross McNerney (banjo/mandolin/keys), are Brave Giant.  A band rooted in an inherited love for trad & folk, moulded, morphed and inspired by indie & alternative influences.  Based in Longford the band released its first commercial track in April 2016, the still hugely popular Lordy Lordy.

In just three years, Brave Giant has gone from selling out two nights Upstairs at Whelans Live, Dublin to the band’s biggest headline show to date at The Olympia Theatre, Dublin on Saturday November 9th, also going to sell out. The band has also seen it’s Spotify streams grow to over three (3) million during the last year, and online video views in the same region.

Earlier this spring Emmett, Mark, Podge and Ross teamed up with one of the country’s most respected musicians and producers Gavin Glass of Orphan Recording, to record this debut long play which sees a slight change in direction for the band.  

Since releasing its first commercial track in 2016 (‘Lordy Lordy’), Brave Giant has sold-out all its headline shows in Dublin and numerous across the country together with having a string of top 5 singles including The Time I Met The Devil and two number one’s with Way To Love and Somebody’s Someone.  Opening for Picture This on the final night of the band’s five-night Olympia run in 2017 will always be very special.  Not shy to festival season either, in the three years to date some of the band’s summer festival performances include Longitude, Sea Sessions, and Electric Picnic.  Indeed in 2018, over 5,000 people turned out to see the band live in their home county at the Longford Town Festival.
