Bona Fide Federation
Cork, County Cork
"The fusion of Pop, Rock, Jazz, Classical and Adele-esque vocals is what Bona Fide Federation is all about. The result is a spectacular sound which doesn’t fail to impress." (Sound of 2012 by 2 U I Bestow and Swear I'm not Paul)
“Mixing alternative pop, jazz and classical in a way that seems to create a genre entirely of its own, Bona Fide Federation really are to my mind the most exciting band to come out of Cork in recent years and have to be heard to be believed." (U.C.C Express)
“Magical vocals accompanied by the delicacy of sophisticated keyboard playing and cello strokes pushes Bona Fide Federation into a stratosphere of their very own, to a place of sun soaked summers, daisy fields, outdoor cups of teas, stone walls and easy listening.” (Echoparade)
Bona Fide Federation has created a fresh sound with a line up of piano, vocals, cello, electric bass and drums. They launched their indie-pop debut single ‘Festival’ in the lead up to the Sea Sessions 2011, where they performed on the festival’s main stage. In 2010, the band launched their debut E.P 'Night Train' and have been touring Ireland's gigging and festival circuit since. Bona Fide Federation have supported acts such as “O Emperor”, “The Frank and Walters” and “Fred”.
The close of 2011, has seen the band enter into a state of musical hibernation which allowed new material to blossom. With a debut album in construction as well as a single release due in May, Bona Fide Federation have been noted by bloggers 'Swear I'm not Paul' and '2 U I bestow' as "the sound of 2012". The band are also apart of the "Cafe Irlandaise" compilation of upcoming Irish female artists which received album of the week in the 'Day and Night' in the 'Irish Independent' and four stars in this weeks 'The Ticket' in the 'Irish Times'.
The band were also selected to play this years IMRO showcase tour and their stint on Balcony TV was well received by viewers. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fIDEvppYS7M
