Welcome to episode 6 of my Podcast with Irish drummer Dave Hingerty.
On this episode we discuss Dave's Side 4 Collective and how he was inspired to create a musical project that stemmed from his drum beats. Both myself and Dave have both been drummers for Irish band The Frames. We discuss the effects of social media, our experiences playing with Glen Hansard and The Frames, Paul Brady and life as a musician during the Covid pandemic.
Side 4 Collective’s debut album We Burn Bright due for release on May 29th via AMS Records features collaborations with Josh Ritter and Bell X1’s Paul Noonan and a stellar array of the world’s finest musicians.
