THE IKE REILLY ASSASSINATION
Libertyville, IL-native Ike Reilly is one of America’s best contemporary songwriters. The former gravedigger and hotel doorman made his major label debut in 2001 with the Universal release of the stunning Salesmen and Racists. He has recently completed his seventh studio recording, Born On Fire, and his live performances both as a solo performer and as the leader of the ferocious Ike Reilly Assassination have garnered him a cult following and high praise from critics. David Carr of the New York Times said, “Ike Reilly is a kind of natural resource, mined from the bedrock of music.
A veteran of the New York music scene since the late 90’s, Irish singer-songwriter and East Village linchpin Brendan O’Shea has developed a delicate songwriting style and a vast following over the last two decades.
