Bailers music is an exciting and original blend of acoustic and electric material. The music is full of dynamics and melody, which has made the band accessible to audiences all over Ireland. This Irish band was formed in 2001. Founder members of Bailer Caitriona McGuinness (singer) and Maurice Brennan (guitarist/songwriter) previously played together in Dublin building up a strong repertoire and gaining live experience.|
With Gene Murphy established on bass and after several line up changes the band really came into its own in the Summer of 2003 with the arrival of the crazy French drummer Frank Chircop. Frank came to Ireland via The Musician's Institute in Hollywood CA, and travelled to Dublin to find the right band. Bailer released its debut EP In the City in 2004. Bassist Peter Jordan joined the band in 2005 following Genes departure, and features on the new recording.
Bailer has gigged extensively playing leading Irish venues such as The Point Theatre, Vicar Street, Temple Bar Music Centre, The Green Room, The Music Factory, The Sugar Club, Dolan's Warehouse, The Hub and a host of festivals around the country. They were selected to play at the prestigious Hard Working Class Heroes music industry showcase last August.
Regular supports with some of Ireland's most popular acts like Aslan and The Hothouse Flowers have provided tremendous exposure and invaluable experience. One of the highlights of 2005 was when the band played at The Point Theatre as Aslans special guest in December.
The band released a single called Tonight in March 2006 which has received very encouraging airplay both on national and regional radio. As well as gigging and promoting the current single the band have been recording at Jam Studios in Kells with producer/engineer Martin Quinn for the follow up single entitled Watch Out!, which they plan to release early this Summer.
