Mullingar, County Westmeath
Emerging band White Chalk have certainly been creating a buzz since arriving on the Irish music scene only a year ago. The seven piece band which is fronted by popular Voice of Ireland finalist Conor Quinn have begun building an army of followers after a phenomenal year which saw them sell out their first headline gig at Dublin’s Sugar Club, top the ITunes album charts with their debut EP and support some of Ireland’s biggest bands such as Kodaline and Keywest in Ireland’s most prestigious music venues.
White Chalk was formed after talented singer/songwriter Conor Quinn held auditions to find his band after spending two year writing beautiful, heartfelt music following his Voice of Ireland success. The band is an eclectic mix of some of Ireland’s finest young talent. They use an impressive array of instruments such as guitar, cello, keyboards, drums, mandolin and bass. Their full sound compliments their impressive five part harmonies and the unique vocal tone of lead singer Conor Quinn.
The bands new EP “Golden Kids”, spent 2 weeks at number 1 in the iTunes download charts and is available on iTunes.
White Chalk has recently joined “Red Hot Management” a progressive company for new talented artists.
