Little Hours is the musical moniker for Killybegs multi-instrumentalist and songwriter John Doherty. The young troubadour from Donegal crafts subtle and sublime pop moments blending acoustic guitar, piano and his unique commanding voice.
In 2014 Little Hours released the 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 Little Hours to sold out shows across the country as well as appearances at Electric Picnic and supports with James Bay, Tom Baxter and Hudson Taylor.
Further singles 'Water', ‘How Could I Love You’ and ‘Heavy On You’ all enjoyed prominent airplay on Irish radio and lead to sold out shows across Ireland. Fresh from opening for label-mates Hudson Taylor on their sold out European tour Little Hours have continued to release a steady stream of music over the summer months with a series of gorgeous pared back acoustic versions of fan favourite tracks.
In October 2018, Little Hours presented acoustic versions of previously released songs recorded at Attica studios in Donegal. The EP, ‘Acoustic Live at Attica’ is now available on all digital platforms.
