3Olympia Theatre, Dame Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 2
Gemma Dunleavy has announced her debut headliner at 3Olympia Theatre on Friday 1st April 2022
Songwriter and producer Gemma Dunleavy may have captured your attention through her previous collaborations with Murlo and Swing Ting but now the North Inner City Dubliner has been busy making a name for herself with her stunning debut EP ‘UP DE FLATS’. This project celebrates her community of Sheriff St, a strong running theme throughout her work. The EP explores the trials and tribulations of working class life through the perspectives of 6 different characters inspired by those she's grown up around.
Taking influence from traditional storytelling, Dunleavy has developed her sound by experimenting with instruments connected to that of her heritage, like the harp and flute and amalgamated this with her love for pop and club music.
