The Quicksand Band were formed in 2008 in
Dublin. Having played together in
various forms over the years, the lads grouped together to record what was
originally a solo project for lead singer Justin Corr. But the sounds and vibes that
came from that session paved the way for the launch of a new band. With Phil Clarke joining Justin on lead vocals and
guitars, Shay Cosgrave on drums and Eoin Melinn on Bass, The Quicksand Band was born.
Playing in venues across the country they have developed a unique style and approach to music with songs that bear the i
influence of country, folk and rock but with a very contemporary edge. Their live performances have gained them a large
fan base, drawn to their compelling, exciting and honest delivery of material.
The Quicksand Band have had the pleasure of being guests to Declan O'Rourke, Freddie White, Prison Love, Luan Parle,
Mick Hanly and Eric Taylor amongst others.
The EP "Ten Gallon Drought" (the product of those early sessions) was launched in 2008 and has been well received by
fans and critics. The follow up EP "Ten Gallon drought Part II" was launched the following year.
In 2011 the band, accompanied by producer Gavin Glass, entered the studio to record their debut Album, Approaching
Rain. The first single 'Homesong', was released in sept 2011, and the album was release in feb 2012, followed by the launch
of the singles 'That Voice' (sept 2012) and 'Learning' (feb 2013).
2013 sees the band reunite with producer Gavin Glass to enter the studio to start recording sessions for what will be an as
yet untitled second album.
