Train Room is the brainchild of Balla songwriter, musician and producer Joe Monaghan. Train Room’s first gig, at Dublin’s showcase Hard Working Class Heroes Festival in 2016, and debut EP Delicate Bones, brought the band’s distinctive sound to general attention and significant interest. 
Joe, who has been honing his musical skills recording demos for the past seven or eight years (in his studio in Balla), cites musical influences as broad as Wilco, Whipping Boy, Kate Bush, Neil Young and Nina Simone. But listen to Delicate Bones, and you’ll hear that Train Room makes music that is very much its own. A band on the ascendant, and one to watch.
“Delicate Bones” was the critical acclaimed debut EP from Irish born singer-songwriter Joe Monaghan. Performing under the monacure Train Room, the native from Mayo debut single  Horizons was chosen by the Council of Tourism in Ireland to represent the county in a major worldwide TV campaign.  
Train Room’s follow up single Grace was chosen by The Irish Times as the “Song of the Week”
Their sound has been described as “powerful and unique” by Hotpress magazine.
“Train Room has a quite, tempered brilliance to it –the vocals demonstrate a wondrous honing of an entrancing voice”- Dublin Concerts
