Rushes

Rushes

Sean Walsh aka Rushes is an Irish singer, songwriter and producer that blends transatlantic styles with soulful vocals and cutting-edge electronic sounds. When you first listen to his sizzling beats you'll be surprised to hear the voice behind the silky vocals hails from Skibbereen, a small town in West Cork.

His tantalizing debut track 'Wild High', a R&B electronic track with a pop edge was influenced by Walsh's love of Pharrell Williams, Kanye West, Frank Ocean and Marvin Gaye. Joe.ie selected 'Wild High' as their Song of the Week and The Irish Times went on to name Rushes as their Artist of the Week alongside his Irish contemporaries Saint Sister and Rusangano Family.

Rewind to 2014, a brief stint studying music production and a support slot for James Arthur at the Cork Opera House, spurred Walsh on to develop his craft. In the same year he connected with Irish production house, Diffusion Lab who also represent Soulé, Jafaris and Flynn on their roster. Working with the music collective has opened up the eyes of the self-taught producer to what's possible as he continues to evolve his sound.

'Liquor' is Rushes' latest single and follows the success of 'Wave', which was well received across Irish radio stations and included in Spotify's New Music Friday playlist and Apple Music Pop playlist, slotting in amongst the mainstream heavyweights.

An alluring blend of electro-RnB, 'Liquor' is infused with dreamy vocals and perfectly polished production. The mellow track blends euphoric melodies and inventive beats with an underlying dark undertone. The result is the epitome of sexy and cool; a finished canvas reflecting Rushes' self-confessed perfectionism and confirming his idiosyncratic talent.

Behind the scenes, the hardworking emerging artist hasworked with the likes of Kodaline, Overhead The Albatross and All Tvvins. Rushes' talent of songwriting, producing and singing are paving the way for Walsh to take centre stage as a performer who will be hitting the festival scene next year. Along with anEP release scheduled for March 2019, it promises to masterfully fuse his influences of R&B, hip-hop, pop and electronic sounds.
