Cork City, County Cork
Carpool Conversation was set up by Brian Og O’Reilly and Vinny Whelan in Jan’08 in Cork City, South of Ireland. They built a home studio in Brian’s house where they could write, record, and experiment with music in an unrestricted environment.
Brian and Vinny, both multi instrumentalists have an eclectic writing partnership which takes them on many genre hopping journeys. At a Carpool gig you would expect to hear anything from psychedelia and electronica to indie rock.
Who would appreciate Carpool Conversation? Fans of music such as Broken Social Scene, Radiohead, Animal Collective, Juana Molina, Elbow, Superfurry Animals etc.
The band consists of core members Brian Og O’Reilly (Guitar, Vocals, Keys, Sitar), Vinny Whelan (Keys, Vocals, Guitar, Bass), with help from
Evin O'Reilly (Drums, Vocals), Paul O’Shea (Bass, Keys)
Carpool Conversation are currently putting the finishing touches to their debut album .
