A Great Quiet is comprised of childhood friends and Athy natives, Will O’Donnell and Aran Cardiff. Formed just over a year ago, they launched their debut single Open Spaces on the 2FM Eoghan McDermott show and are continuing to go from strength to strength having already performed to sellout crowds in venues across Ireland including The Academy, The Grand Social, Whelan’s, the famous Abner Browns Barbershop and most notably two appearances at Electric Picnic 2017 after winning 2fm’s Play the Picnic competition through public vote.
Recently selected as Whelan's Ones To Watch for 2018, they released their debut EP “Soft Breath and Echoes” in February debuting Top 10 in the iTunes Charts.
With Aran and Will being inspired by a wide variety of genres, their music moves the listener across a visceral impulsive landscape with their live shows setting an energetic tone throughout.
“I don’t know what they are pumping into the water in Athy but these guys have something really exciting” - Louise Duffy Today FM.
“If this is a statement of intent then by gosh you will hear a lot more of these guys” - Eoghan McDermott 2fm.
