NO OFFENCE

The police drama set in Manchester is back for another season and it is set to be as interesting, shocking and entertaining as ever. Created by Paul Abbott, who was also the creator of Shameless, you sort of know what you are getting with No Offence.

The opening programme was all about the election race for the next Mayor of Manchester. There were a lot of people demonstrating outside the building where a hustings was to be held and it was clear that something big was going to go down.

Brian Deady was a well-kept secret until 'Clap Both My Hands' became one of the most played Irish songs of 2016 and reached No.1 in the Spotify UK Viral charts .

His recent single 'Get On My Knees' has also featured in American TV show 'Lucifer'. Conjuring up strong gospel influences, at times he sounds more like he was raised in the Deep South than in Cork and his rich, soulful voice comes with a contemporary R&B edge.

He has now released his second album 'Black Diamond' to rave reviews and heads our way in October stopping off at Project on Friday, 26th (doors 8pm). Tickets now at http://www.projectandshortts.ticketabc.com
