Stephen Doohan is the backbone of Blackbird and Crow. While studying music at College he was introduced to some of the guitar greats that became his heroes. Heavily influenced by the likes of Rory Gallagher, Jimi Hendrix and Ry Cooder. He borrows from the styles of all three, fusing them together into his own unique “Duurrty, nasty, blues” sound.
Stephen joined up with Maighread in the summer of 2016 to begin writing and playing together as Blackbird & Crow.
When onstage together, the Blackbird and the Crow leave nothing behind in the dressing room. The show is a blatant, honest, in your face expression of musical passion. The songs are a timeline of their own life events, delivered with the same honesty and intensity that it took to write them.
