What you may need to know…

01. Participant is the nom-de-plume of Co. Dublin ambient/indie singer-composer Stephen Tierney.

02. Releasing debut E.P. Bit Slow in 2014, the Irish gigging/festival grind and accolades from the Irish music press swiftly followed. Last year saw the release of sophomore extended-player Content.

03. Streaming above is Leave Me Here, released back in March of this year.

04. Participant is among those lined up for Hard Working Class Heroes this October, from the 6th to the 8th, across various Dublin venues.

VERDICT: The most admirable aspect of Participant’s brittle, gentle sonic sensibilities is the discipline and effort into maintaining such minimalism. Such care rich reaps rewards for those that bear with it.
