Award winning contemporary folk group Tinderbox were originally formed in 1997 by Dublin born singer-songwriter Monique Houraghan and guitarist/songwriter Dan Tucker. Since 2007, talented multi-instrumentalist and session musician Bob Burke has completed the dynamic trio line-up.
With five studio albums and one live album under their belts Tinderbox have amassed an impressive catalogue of self-penned music. Inspired by artists as diverse as James Taylor, Ane Brun, Jackson Browne and Counting Crows, the songs explore a myriad of poignant themes that range from war and the environment to lost friendship, global travel and (of course) love.
BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson has described Tinderbox’s music as “Gorgeous”. R2 Magazine’s Dai Jeffries branded the music “Outstanding…refreshingly natural”and Folkwords columnist Tim Carroll commended the “…highly accomplished musicianship; with a deliciously pure voice and a lush embroidery of strings”.
In recent years Tinderbox’s music has featured in numerous television and film projects including ‘Aisling’s Diary’ (RTE1, Ireland), ‘Dr G Medical Examiner’ (Discovery Channel, USA), ‘Trinity’ (Channel 5 Entertainment, USA) and independent US feature film ‘The Bilbee Boys’ to name a few.
With an established reputation amongst the wider folk and acoustic scene it’s highly recommended (if you haven’t already) that you experience Tinderbox live.
