The Irish music scene has been the topic of conversation for quite sometime, with an ever increasing selection of music that is being exported across the World. We have amazing festivals, live music venues and an appetite for supporting our own.

Beautiful Sonic Seekers  Other Voices give Irish artists in particular a visual presence and of course by being selected to be a part of the festival, an added merit. We are taking a look at the acts heading to Dingle on the show over the next few weeks. 

Radio plays a major part in helping bands get noticed, music being downloaded and gig tickets being bought. We are very lucky on Lost in Music as we have the opportunity to play brand new Irish music and brand new Irish artists. The Power of radio is pretty phenomenal! Just look at the bands we have championed on this show over the past 2 years to see how much radio is a brilliant platform for new music. Hint.. they are all in our spotify playlist. 

It would seem a bit mad not to point to all the amazing songs and artists we have featured so far this year. So here you go! Plug your headphones in and press play, follow the playlist to keep up with all the shows top picks as Play Irish Artist of 2018.
