A Great Quiet
Athy, County Kildare
A Great Quiet is comprised of childhood friends and Athy natives, Will O’Donnell and Aran Cardiff. Formed just over a year ago, they launched their debut single Open Spaces on the 2FM Eoghan McDermott show and are continuing to go from strength to strength having already performed to sellout crowds in venues across Ireland including The Academy, The Grand Social, Whelan’s, the famous Abner Browns Barbershop and most notably two appearance’s at Electric Picnic 2017 after winning 2fm’s Play the Picnic competition through public vote.
Inspired by a wide variety of musical influences and genres, their music moves the listener across a visceral impulsive landscape with their live shows setting an energetic tone throughout.
