Frankly we have a bit of a crush on Tim Chadwick, his latest single 'I Need To Know' is a slice of perfect sad banger pop and we cannot get enough. Tim came in and recorded a very special session for us, with a stripped back version of 'I Need To Know' and a stunning cover of Whitney Houston's 1987 classic 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody'. We really enjoyed this session and we think you will agree, he's got that certain something! Tim Chadwick is a Dublin native, with a penchant for writing a mega catchy hook. He is signed to Sony Music and we expect really big things from him. You can catch Tim Chadwick at Sea Sessions June 21st - June 23rd Lost in Music with Louise Duffy Weeknights 7pm Always Supporting Irish The loveliest of folk x — Tim Chadwick (@timtimyall) May 15, 2019
'I've not met Sam Smith, but I've got his number' Sam Fender chatting about messaging Sam Smith for tips to keep his voice in top condition. Sam was over in Ireland and dropped in to say hi to Louise Duffy, have a listen to the chat above and to his session which he recorded for us in late 2018. Including how he would love to work with Kendrick Lamar at some stage. Sam is so humble and we love his tunes on Lost in Music. He is playing Electric Picnic in September and is well worth seeing.

We were delighted to welcome Alice Merton In Session on Lost in Music this week. Alice spoke to us just before her Olympia show in Dublin - we heard all about her roots (or what she would consider lack thereof) which served as the inspiration behind the song we know and love: No Roots. Having started her career as a songwriter for major label artists, Merton wasn't a fan of how these labels operated so she decided to do what a lot of dream about - she started her own record label in Berlin. Hear all about it during her chat with us which is followed by a stunning acoustic performance of the song we've been playing for two years now - No Roots. Lost in Music with Louise Duffy, weeknights, 7pm.

Johnny Borrell's Razorlight are back with a new album, tour and perspective on the era that was the 00s.  Think about it, there was no social media, no instagram, no twitter, no instant reactions. Johnny and David chat with Ed Smith about the era just prior to the social media revolution and how it was perhaps easier to make music, certainly easier to avoid distractions.  Johnny talks about playing guitar 10 hours a day with the band, hanging out in Camden and recording demos one week, then appearing on Top of the Pops the next.  In the interview Ed references the Adam and Joe from XFM in the UK.

Have a listen by clicking the link above to his track 'Full Recovery' recorded in studio here in Marconi House, thanks to our Gavin Blake on sound.  Here's the skinny on the rising star.  Curtis Walsh is already impressive and he has only just begun! The IMRO 2017 Christie Hennessy Songwriting Competition winner has been supporting The Academic, Lany and Tom Walker in recent months.    In fact, he has spent the past year gigging, with full audiences and an avid fan base, Curtis released 'Full Recovery' earlier in the summer. The song has been streamed 614,000 times which is pretty spectacular.  'Full Recovery' was written to help someone who Curtis was seeing through a hard time. "I wrote 'Full Recovery' to try to change the mind frame of the person I was seeing so she would realise no matter how bad the situation is, that with a bit of patience and trust, everything will eventually be okay."         This fella is in #PlayIrish Session tonight with @edsongsofpraise @CWalshMusic is one to watch Lost in Music Weeknights 7pm — Today FM (@TodayFM) October 16, 2018
