Album Premiere: A Co-Present Christmas


Featuring the likes of i am niamh, Sleep Thieves and Laura Ann Brady, we’re very pleased to present a premiere of the inaugural A Co-Present Christmas, a first-rate, fourteen-track compilation of covers, original tracks and Christmas themed tracks from various Irish artists.

To celebration the end of what they rightly have called an amazing year for Irish music (and how) The Co-Present – hands down one of our favourite radio shows in Ireland, broadcast weekly on – selected some of their favourite artists to contribute their festive songs to release.

Having launched in November 2013, the Co-Present – hosted by Dwayne Woods (below) – has grown to represent the fruits of Irish music in a time where musicians to get airplay, completely unfunded and without sponsorship.

Check out our feature on The Co-Present from May right here and stream A Co-Present Christmas via Bandcamp below.
