Little Hours


Little Hours are John Doherty and Ryan Mc Closkey.  The young duo from Killybegs, Donegal craft subtle and sublime pop moments blending acoustic guitar, piano and their unique commanding voices.

In 2014 they released their debut 'Little Hours' Ep which featured the Choice Music Prize nominated song of the year 'It's Still Love'.  The song picked up significant Irish radio airplay and propelled the band to sold out shows across the country as well as appearances at Electric Picninc and supports with James Bay, Tom Baxter and Hudson Taylor.

Their single 'Water' was written in their home studio and encapsulates the purity and clarity of their body of work. The seclusion of their set up is seen in the pared back precision of their song-writing, weaving gorgeous melodies with evocative lyrics.

The band’s creative vision extends beyond their song-writing. Keyboardist John is a painter, and produces original artworks to accompany each of the tracks the duo record. The powerful forthcoming video for ‘Water’ was also their own conception. These threads of artistry all combine to build a uniquely homegrown approach to their craft.
