About John, Shelly And The Creatures

John Shelly and the Creatures formed in February 2007 after a chance meeting in Berlin with two homeless Irish twins named John and Shelly, and are made up of band members: Kevin Carlisle (Drums, percussion & vox), Philip Watts d'Alton (guitar, vox, keys, bass, mandolin), Ger Gormley (bass, guitar, mandolin, vox) and Walter (guitar, vox, keys, programming and drums). They are influenced by a wide variety of genres and are unafraid to mix things up when it comes to recording and playing live. They have spent the last few months in the studio recording their stunning debut album “Dinosaur” which has a release date set for March 5th 2010.

With a successful showcase band tour in 2009 all over the Uk, Ireland and Northern Ireland, John, Shelly and The Creatures also landed themselves on the bill for the IMRO Show case tour and a performed their own sell out show in Dublin’s legendary venue: Whelan’s. They have played with Irish luminaries such as Mundy & Dave Geraghty whilst on the road and closed the Tall Ships Festival in Belfast late last year. They also won "Best New Irish Act" at the Balcony TV awards in 09. State Magazine have just recently hailed them as “ones to watch for 2010” and they have just been awarded single of the week on Radio na Life. Their live show has become one of their strongest word of mouth endorsements and is truly a visual and audio feast to behold.

John, Shelly & The Creatures made a significant move in their musical career when they released their single ‘ANGELINE’ to receive critical acclaim and radio support from BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio Ulster, U105fm, Phantom Fm and many more. Following in the footsteps of fellow Northern Irish band SNOW PATROL, they then signed a publishing deal with Big Life Music Ltd (Snow Patrol, The Verve, Badly Drawn Boy...). Were their single "Long May You Reign" was featured in the Discover Northern Ireland TV, radio and cinema advert campaign. (A very extensive campaign covering The Republic of Ireland and the UK will see the band continue to be featured on TV adverts across: RTE, TV3, UTV, Channel 4, E4, MTV, Sky One, Sky Sports, Sky News, Setanta and throughout Cinemas and Radio waves Nationwide).
