Lucan, County Dublin
Multi-instrumentalist, producer and songwriter/rapper - Janksy is twenty year old Joe McGuirk from Dublin. Since releasing music on soundcloud in 2016, Janksy has racked up thousands of plays with songs like 'Feelin' Breaux' and 'Limbo' . Now blending everything from experimental hip-hop and alternative rock, he is ready to show us how growing up with the ambitions of an artist, while trudging through day to day life as a modern Dubliner, affects the young musician's mind.
Janksy's influences range from Frank Ocean, to My Bloody Valentine and anything in between. Now, with his first project promised, Janksy is looking to evolve into one of the most enigmatic artists in the Irish music scene.
''There’s something endearingly simple about the whole operation. Janksy has no pretences, despite the sudden surge in interest in him. He has moments of self-consciousness, but mostly gives off an air of quiet confidence in his music.''
