Americana-roots band I Draw Slow have been honing their craft for over a decade, selling out venues in their native Ireland and releasing five albums to critical acclaim. Performing a compelling blend of traditional and contemporary Americana, folk-roots, pop and more, the Dublin-based quintet has been steadily building a strong reputation across the Atlantic, and were signed to leading Nashville label Compass Records back in 2017. The band is well-established on the American roots scene, touring numerous times across 25 states and performing at many major USA festivals including Merlefest and Grey Fox. I Draw Slow released their latest album in September 2022, and it received glowing reviews to add to the praise already heaped on its predecessors. 

“Whatever Americana scene there may be in Ireland, I Draw Slow have surely conquered it. These songs sound hewn from the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee, and not their native Dublin. ” – The Sunday Times 

I Draw Slow imbue their brand of roots music with an appealing, distinctive flavour, with Louise Holden’s captivating voice complemented by outstanding musicianship on fiddle (Adrian Hart), clawhammer banjo (Colin Derham), acoustic guitar (Dave Holden) and double bass (Konrad Liddy). Siblings Louise and Dave Holden have been writing songs together since a very young age, and their sibling harmonies add extra charm to the band’s impeccable sound.  I Draw Slow completed another couple of successful tours in the USA this year and we’re delighted that they’re planning to head our way for a handful of UK gigs in spring 2024, after we first hosted them for a mini tour in 2022.
