Hailing from County Wexford, Basciville has created an exciting, vibrant and new wave of Irish soul.
Formed in early 2014, Basciville is the alias of Wexford brothers Cillian and Lorcan Byrne.
Both graduated from Wexford Insititute of Technology with Honours Degrees in Jazz, Cillian, along with younger brother Lorcan began touring extensively throughout Ireland and Europe with some of Ireland's best known acts.
Eventually deciding that the time was right to explore the songs he had collected and to satisfy the need to be his own artist, Cillian, now working under the name Basciville, began playing solo shows in the summer of 2014. With influences ranging from Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and Ella Fitzgerald to Jeff Buckley, Led Zeppelin and Ry Cooder, Basciville, who are now performing as a five piece, have created a dynamic, spontaneous and fun record which puts a spin on Ireland's rich and growing tradition of Irish soul and blues music.
Following successful shows throughout Ireland in late 2014 and early 2015, Basciville took time to record their debut EP 'Blues in Red'. The EP was launched with both a sell out performance in Wexford and Dublin's iconic Pepper Cannister Church.
