The SU Sessions - Free gigs
Derek Ellard - Tuesday 29th November (Study Week)
Originally from Tipperary town, Derek is a singer/songwriter with a difference, utilizing a loop station to create multi layered guitars and live drums.... the guitar is the only instrument that accompanies these powerful, husky vocals. It has all been a development since beginning to play and write on his own, until recently, struggling to find his sound and in an attempt to try and create bigger more in depth songs, he was lead to the loop station, the loop created a canvas and the rest was history...
Heavily influenced by his roots in post hardcore and rock... this acoustic blend is captivating and original, he is currently working on his first studio E.P.
The SU Sessions are a FREE weekly event open to the public and hosted by NUI Galway Students' Union in The Canteen (An Bialann). Every Tuesday musical acts on the cusp of greatness will preform 7 songs (semi) acoustically for your listening pleasure at 6pm during term in the main canteen.
