Biography

Walking on Cars are a five-piece Irish rock/pop band, composed of Patrick Sheehy (singer/lyricist) Sorcha Durham (pianist), Dan Devane (lead guitarist), Paul Flannery (bass guitarist) and Evan Hadnett (drummer). They released their debut single, "Catch Me If You Can" in 2012 which went to No. 1 on the Irish iTunes chart. Releasing their debut EP, As We Fly South, in 2013, their EP Hand in Hand (2014) was released alongside their single, "Always Be with You". The band released their debut album Everything This Way on 29 January 2016. They released their single "Speeding Cars" on Friday, 30 October 2015.

Conceived in 2010, the five school friends started by performing gigs at local venues and clubs in their hometown of Dingle, County Kerry. Committing wholly to their music ambitions, the band went on to rent a house in the Dingle Peninsula and lock themselves away for the purpose of listening, writing and recording demos. “The place we rented was a really old cottage, where we had no television, no phone, no Internet, no transport,” says Sorcha, “We were there for 6 months – just our equipment and us. It was an amazing time, ideas were constantly flowing.”

In 2012, Walking on Cars won the Redbull Bedroom Jam 2012 competition and gained extensive radio play of their debut single, "Catch Me if You Can". As a result, the track reached no. 27 in the Irish Charts where it remained for over 20 weeks, drawing national attention to the band. "Catch me if you can" also reached No.1 on iTunes, and garnered over 450,000 views on YouTube. "Two Stones", the band’s second single, reached No.12 in the Irish charts, while YouTube views exceed 1,000,000.

Walking On Cars released their four-song EP, As We Fly South, in 2013 - recorded in Attica Studios, Donegal, and produced by Tom McFall (R.E.M, Snow Patrol, Bloc Party, Editors). In July 2014 the band released "Hand in Hand" and "Always Be With You" is out now in the UK and available on iTunes. The single was released in Ireland on 5 December 2013.

The band has now released their first full album "Everything This Way", celebrating this release with CD signings and in-store performances all around Ireland.

Atypical with a style of writing which does not contend with the existing crop of Irish rock/pop bands, Walking on Cars, boasts a wide, cinematic quality with an iconic sense of hook-driven significance. The band’s videos testify to the bands ability to interweave outlined narrative and imagery within serious themes, in a way that is non-formulaic.
