Saint CaoilianCork music superman polishes his halo

What you may need to know…

01. Since we last checked in with Shaker Hymn/Southern Hospitality Board/Quarter/regular disc-jockeying man Caoilian Sherlock, he’s met the minimum requirements to formally receive sainthood before embarking on his solo career in earnest.

02. Himself and Leeside music omnipresence Mr.K have been jamming under the Worm name and have started Small Town Disco, a wee label between them, as reported last week.

03. Streaming above is the video for single I’ll Be a Fool for You, premiered last week over at Nialler9. It’s the leadoff single for Faraway, available May 5th through Small Town Disco.

04. Catch him in Dubland on April 6th in Whelan’s, providing support for Marlene Enright on her tour for album Placemats and Second Cuts.

Thoughts: One of Irish music’s real renaissance men; an artist, curator and enthusiastic spectator in equal measure.

What you may need to know…

01. Shaker Hymn frontman and event-management magnate Caoilian Sherlock is venturing into solo territory.

02. Ploughing a melancholy, poppy folk furrow, reminiscent of Big Star among others, he’s already been busy on his own, including playing last year’s IndieCork festival and a number of support slots around Cork.

03. Streaming above is newly-released single I’ll Be a Fool for You, available on Bandcamp.

04. Catch himself and Dowry playing Mallow tomorrow as part of the Living Space Project music trail of the town, and in a more intimate gig setting Sunday evening at Gulpd Cafe in the Triskel in Cork. The duo will also have a Dublin leg on Saturday 13th at Thirty-Four.

Verdict: As warm and welcoming as his main outfit’s music, but vested with a voice and flair for lovelorn songcraft that’s all his own.
