Blink Frontman Dermot Lambert releases first solo single
Dermot Lambert, front man and songwriter with seminal Irish band Blink, has announced the release of “Twinkle Twinkle Satellite”, his first solo single on November 16th.
Mixed by the legendary Howie Beno of MINISTRY fame, the single is the first offering from the much anticipated album “Tiny” which will be released on February 8th with a launch party in Whelan’s, Dublin. Tickets are onsale now from entertainment.ie/tickets
During his ten years with Blink, Lambert enjoyed great success both at home and abroad, with three platinum selling albums, and numerous hit singles, including Cello, It’s Not My Fault, Going to Nepal and Happy Day. Blink also enjoyed numerous award nominations, and critical acclaim from The Irish Times to Hotpress to Billboard Magazine.
Whilst blazing a trail for Irish musicians with his Garageland Project in recent years, Dermot has had significant successes, including bringing the likes of The Script, Ryan Sheridan, Royseven, Delorentos, & Ham Sandwich to their first ever live shows - while at the same time, always putting this work together in his own ‘garage’.
Having explored the ‘band’ format for some time, Dermot’s curiosity led to his taking a new approach to find something fresh, the idea that emerged was to bring an album of material together, through the engagement of people who had never seen the inside of a recording studio before.
This led to recording sessions which frequently saw family members and friends, along with the occasional ‘pro’ just getting stuck in, making it up as they went, drinking tea, and figuring stuff out - the final result is beyond what Dermot had hoped for, where inexperience and zero expectation would wield magic around a gorgeous set of songs.
