August 9th, 2018

The Official BIMM Dublin Podcast returns!  Our summer episode includes music and chat from new post-punk quintet The Murder Capital.  Having quickly gained a reputation as one of Ireland's most exciting live bands, current BIMM students James McGovern and Damien Tuit sit in St. Patrick's Park for a chat with Danny Carroll.

Also on this episode, we have a two part interview with Rory Friers from And So I Watch You From Afar, recorded live at a BIMM Masterclass in April.  Rory has recently composed the soundtrack to the zombie film 'The Cured' as well as releasing ASIWYFA's fifth album Endless Shimmering.  He answered questions from Danny and BIMM students about his early days touring, songwriting process and guitar playing.

As well as all this, we have an interview with rising singer-songwriter Laura Ryder.  A recent graduate of BIMM Dublin, Laura makes distinct and memorable pop music, channeling the spirit of Regina Spektor and Kimya Dawson among others.

Episode 2 (Maria Kelly, Joe Furlong, Tine Verbeke)

May 29th, 2018
Episode two of the BIMM Dublin Podcast features illuminating music and chat from students, graduates and lecturers of the college.  Featured in this episode is the rising alt-folk singer-songwriter Maria Kelly.  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.  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.
