From delicate country tinged ballads laden with rich harmonies to driving rock numbers full of waling guitar solos and screaming feedback, the songs of Neil Young continue to be a beautifully schizophrenic collage of the best music 60s and 70s America had to offer. Psychedelic Pill are a 4 piece band who demonstrate this by combining their own diverse musical backgrounds to take you on a trip from Neil Young’s earliest work through the Crazy Horse collaborations and beyond.
Isaac Tabor (lead vocals and guitar) is a Dutch-American musician who started as a touring musician in Liverpool with various bands before joining the folk group Jukebox Gypsy, taking him on a 5 year journey of relentless gigging in Ireland and continental Europe. Isaac is returning to Ireland for a number of dates to pay homage to a lifelong influence, taking a break from touring his own recently released solo material to indulge in playing songs that are more often than not 80% guitar solo.
Darragh Coakley (drums and vocs) spends much of his time playing with Cork folk heroes the Calvinists as well as touring with a number of other regulars on the Cork music scene, highlights of which include being featured in the New York Times, playing national television and touring in Europe and America.
Brian Casey (guitar and keys) is a Cork native that splits his creative energy equally between gigging solo as a humble folk singer and as front man of electro-rock outfit Screenreader. Brian can never decide whether he prefers to play very quietly or hideously loud, so when playing with Psychedelic Pill, he can be found trying to do 14 different things at once.
Alan Brooks (bass) brings years of experience playing anything with strings on it in country bands, trad sessions and much more. While playing the music of Neil Young, Alan spends half his time wondering why there are so many chords and half trying not to make his bass lines more face-melting than what the guitarists are doing.
