Beginning his Australian music career as a solo artist in 2018, Irish born artist/singer/songwriter Richard Neill merged his talents with Gold Coast veterans Josh Paish(drums) and Ryan Grantham(bass) in 2021 to form ‘Richard Neill & The Drunken Midnight Choir’. However in 2023, after several single releases, official music videos, a number of live performances and their debut US tour, the band officially became "The Drunken Midnight Choir”.
With a love for folk and roots artists such as Damien Rice, Glen Hansard, Mumford Sons, Ben Howard & John Butler, Neill combines these influences with his love for rock bands such as Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam & Biffy Clyro to create a folk/rock sound unique to him.
Going from gentle, melodic, folk vibe, storytelling, to intense rhythms, belting vocals and thundering drums, The Drunken Midnight Choir are vastly becoming a force to be reckoned with, as they continue their relentless push for ever greater success.
With the release of their latest single ‘Sweet Little Lies’, The DMC are taking their sound to the next level in this, sombre, somewhat eerily melodic song that builds in intensity, eventually reaching its climax with an outpour of emotion and pain.
