Doppler's debut single " A Memory" has spent this summer on heavy rotation on Irish radio as it made the RTÉ Radio 1 Recommends List for a couple of weeks. After Hot Press premiered the video it sparked a "phenomenal reaction" according to HP's A&R Dept main man Stuart Clark. The Specials guitarist Horace Panter also struck an unlikely friendship with Jamie and is now a legit fan after stumbling across the track. " A Memory" has now amassed over 50,000 plays on Spotify. Jamie has recently signed a deal with the Dublin based music publishing company The Nucleolus.
"Smart as heck pop that will lodge in your head and refuse to leave" Tony Clayton Lea - The Irish Times
" Most stuff doesn't hold my attention for longer than 30 seconds but this one stuck" Horace Panter - The Specials'
"Great vocals and beautiful harmonies" - Christy Moore
"The likes of Simon and Garfunkel are the musical touchstones of the outfit; their harmonies are beautifully measured, making for a mesmerising listen" - Hot Press
After winning the coveted IMRO Clancy Brothers songwriting competition back in 2015, the future looked very bright for Jamie Mulrooney AKA “Doppler” and seemed on the cusp of something special. Ever since then things went a little sideways..
This wasn’t the first or the last accolade the Mayo born singer/songwriter amassed over the years either. Receiving a string of glowing press features in The Irish Times, The Independent, RTE Entertainment, and all the major blogs, things seemed on the up and up for Mulrooney and Doppler was even scouted by Atlantic Records at one time.
Before releasing the award winning track “The Truth is Not Your Own” Jamie fell out of love with songwriting, recording and performing solo and decided to put the whole thing on hold and instead pursued a new career….in “ukulele tutoring” and is now responsible for the largest ukulele programme in the country,''Ceili Ukulele” teaching 800 (YES 800) children a week in national schools for Music Generation.
After an influential recording session with Tommy McGlaughin (Villagers, SOAK) recently in Attica Studios, Jamie decided to get back in the game and plan this long overdue return to releasing music.
Second single "Secret Sign" is due to be released on 25th of August 2020. The track will feature on an upcoming "Tourism Ireland" advert campaign in the coming months. Award winning LA based film maker Bill Moldt will create the video for this pop-folk number. According to him "It's going to tell the story of the most wholesome one night stand you're likely to hear for a long time. It involves rabbits and a trip into a fourth dimension. Thankfully the video will be animated."
JAMIES UPDATE FOR AUGUST 2020- Hi everyone - Recently live opportunities have been limited but instead Doppler has engaged in a series of online live performances. The highlight being Hot Press' Y & E series in conjunction with the Dept. of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht. It's been a great experience and as a consequence we've written some new material which I honestly feel is the most musically intricate I've ever been involved with. Also Fluttertone and Cuppa Tea TV have been memorable recent gigs online.. Other highlights were the appearances on some great podcasts such as Roddy Cleerie and Antonia K Moores show. Also being a guest host on my own episode of the "Going Coastal" on Notbad.ie. To be broadcast on several west coast radio stations was a real thrill. A podcast which highlights artists from the west coast of Ireland. What a great idea. All these links as well as other songs can be found through our social media channels which have a combined draw over over 10k followers now. Thanks for the support everyone.
