About Seamus Fogarty
Seamus Fogarty's poetic, experimental songs combine folk-rock and more rustic traditional folk with electronic elements including synthesizers and sound effects. His full-length debut, God Damn You Mountain, saw release in 2012. While continuing to rely on instruments like guitar and banjo, he leaned more heavily into synths, samples, and field recordings on albums including 2020's A Bag of Eyes.
A native of County Mayo, Ireland, London-based musician Seamus Fogarty started offering his first tour CD-Rs, including Home Game EP and Haarfest EP, circa 2010. His first proper album arrived on the U.K.'s Fence Records in 2012. Titled God Damn You Mountain, the self-recorded release featured appearances by vocalists Dorota Konczewska and Emma Smith. An expanded edition followed a year later on Lost Map Records. Among other short-form releases, the 2014 EP Computer Graph was slightly reworked as Ducks and Drakes for Lost Map in 2015.
Fogarty's early recordings made a fan of Domino, which signed him for his second album, The Curious Hand, issued in 2017. It was co-produced by Leo Abrahams (Regina Spektor, Sam Amidon). The EP The Old Suit followed in 2018. Again featuring Emma Smith as well as Abrahams and singer/songwriter Meilyr Jones, among other contributors, the full-length A Bag of Eyes arrived on Domino in November 2020. ~ Marcy Donelson
