23 year old Carlow singer songwriter Joe Cleere is soon to break records by giving away a massive 10,000 copies of his new single for free. It will be the largest music giveaway of any independent Irish artist ever.
Copies of the single, entitled 'Queue' and taken from Cleere's forthcoming album 'East/West', will be distributed to listeners in a series of busking style gig on streets around the country. Cleere will be touring with an entire street team, including a choir, a juggler, face painters and stilt walkers. You can find details of this tour on Joe's myspace page http://www.myspace.com/joecleere
If you don't happen to be in the right place at the right time, you can also download 'Queue' for free from Joe's snazzy website at www.joe-cleere.com/Queue.mp3
Commenting on the giveaway, Cleere said, 'I hope people join me in this new free music revolution and come support me on my tour! People have less disposable income than ever before, but concerts and CDs can still be pricey. This is a chance to have a great day out and support an Irish artist without having to spend a single cent.'
All I can say is, God this must be expensive!
