TooFools – Lorcán O’Dwyer and Steven McCann to their friends – first met while studying music together in Dublin. Initially gigging in opposing original bands, the two ended up playing together in various backing bands for other artists; soon realising they shared a special musical connection the likes of which neither had previously encountered. Shortly before the completion of their studies the two absconded to an isolated mountain cottage to kick around a few musical ideas. From these sessions, TooFools was born.

With a sound informed by greats like Outkast, Stevie Wonder, D’Angelo and Vulfpeck – TooFools flesh things out in the live environment by employing a sprawling 9-piece band made up of a collection of Ireland’s best up and coming musicians.

Following a massively successful 2016, culminating in their own headline show in the Button Factory, 2017 is already shaping up to be a busy one indeed for this promising young pair.
