Scullion, an innovative driving force in music in Ireland.
Sonny Condell the creative core and inspiration for the band continues to invent and innovative. He writes music and songs that are powerful, poetic, soulful and joyful. He is one of Irelands most enduring creative artists and with Robbie Overson and Philip King creates the signature sound that is Scullion.
Scullion’s back pages include the anthems, ‘Down In the City’, ‘Eyelids into Snow’ and ‘John the Baptist’. Recent Scullion performances have sold out in a heartbeat, reconfirming their status as one of the best and most popular bands ever.
Scullion grew from a chance meeting in the late seventies, of its two main founders, Philip King and Sonny Condell. As a band they started rehearsing and writing in a small apartment above a chip shop in Dún Laoghaire, County Dublin, which eventually followed with regular appearances at various Dublin haunts including the Meeting Place in Dorset St. Dublin.
Scullion recorded 5 albums,Scullion (Produced by P.J.Curtis) Balance and Control (Produced by John Martyn), The White Side of Night, (Produced by Nicky Ryan) and Spin and Longwave.
Now they release a new Live Set of Songs…. “Under The Moon”, recorded live in the beautiful Triskel Christchurch in Cork City it contains some of their most moving and special performances.
“The band never stopped, we just have some periods of intense rest! Philip is a successful film maker and broadcaster, and I have my own band and recording career, Robbie plays the music the world over, so we come together when the time is right for us.”
