Midnight 'til Noon

Midnight 'til Noon The release of 'Midnight 'til Noon' follows Donal Donohoe's return to Ireland from Copenhagen where he spent many years making a name for himself on the Danish circuit. before travelling around Europe and settling in Denmark. Donal's unique guitar technique was spotted by Tom O'Brannigan, 98FM, Dublin, Ireland "...it's nice to hear a singer, singer-songwriter who can actually play the guitar..." Sarah McQuaid of The Evening Herald, Dublin, Ireland used the expression "pleasantly mesmerising" in her review of the album and went on to point out that Donal "...also shares Nick (sic) Drake's habit of building a song around a hypnotic guitar riff" making the album good for "post-club chilling or the stressed out commuter's dawn battle...". The musicians who play on 'Midnight 'til Noon' are second to none. All of whom Donal hooked up with while in Copenhagen. Tony Uter began playing in ska, R&B and jazz bands in Jamaica in the 1950's and has played with Edmondo Ross, Toots and the Maytals, Price Buster and the All Stars to name a few. Jeffrey Daniel Jensen from the U.S.A. has a variety of styles to his drumming, blues, funk, rock and is master of the Irish bodhran. Bass playing on 'Midnight 'til Noon' comes from Christian Dawids from Denmark. The combination of these musicians and Donal's passion and gifted song writing abilities make 'Midnight 'til Noon' what it is, an album untainted, letting each track live together in what has become their natural surroundings. This inspired Jackie Hayden from Hot Press, Ireland to say that Donal "...manages to create a sound that sets him apart from the herd...His excellent finger-style acoustic guitar has echoes of Davy Graham...Donohoe has opened his account with distinction...SEVEN / TEN"
