Eoin Glackin delivers folk tunes
with the poise and skill of a veteran
or so say the good people at independentclauses.com
“Singer/songwriters can work for a decade to find a unique voice, which is what makes it astounding when a sophomore release contains a unique perspective on things, musically or lyrically. Eoin Glackin‘s Rain Finally Came provides a fresh take on both, delivering well-penned observations in a recognizably distinct melodic idiom.
Glackin’s sound falls between the sweeping melodic excursions of Josh Ritter and the soaring yawp of latter-day Mountain Goats, as he fills his strumming with sprightly vocal and instrumental melodies.” read the review

Following the release of the critically acclaimed debut, ‘Not Lost’ in 2011, Eoin Glackin’s eagerly awaited new album “Rain Finally Came” goes on release on Friday March 15th via Tuleen Music. The debut created a platform for Eoin, and one he made great use of, gathering a wide legion of live fans and media followers during its life time.
Two years later and armed with eleven stomping new tracks, Eoin cannot wait for the release and hitting the road for live shows both pre and post release. The tour comes to Dublin on March 14th at The Workmans Club on the eve of the new release. However, “Rain Finally Came” is now on pre-order from iTunes.
The album has already given us “New World Blue” (October 2012) and now at radio is the title track, a gem called “Rain Finally Came”. This title track was inspired by a meteorlogical & metaphorically parallel styled day!
“It was the day of torrential flooding around the country, late 2011 and it was after a pretty grim meeting with an old record company. Heading home in a cab, my mood coupled with the bizarre scenes outside, sparked the lines of this song to start grumbling around in my head. I suppose really it’s a song about picking yourself up, accepting what’s gone before and starting again.” Says Eoin.
Growing up in Dublin, Eoin spent his days exploring the music from the likes of Kris Kristofferson, The Beatles and Cat Stevens much to the amusement of his classmates, who were firmly on the Oasis and Ocean Colour Scene team. He started playing piano at 9 and taught himself how to play the guitar at 15. Eoin cites Damien Dempsey as one of his key inspirations. Indeed Damien was pivotal to Eoin’s approach to music and his decision to make his own!
