Leftbank is the latest musical project of musician/ record producer Declan O’Luasa.
O’luasa is perhaps better known as a member of Cork band Rubyhorse. The current line up consists of O’Luasa on guitar and vocals, Marlene Enright on keys and vocals and Humphrey Murphy on upright bass and vocals. A new record” The Sky on my Birthday” is scheduled for release in Ireland on Good Friday 2018 and has been described by the renowned Steve Morse of the Boston Globe as “ Hypnotic bluesy meditations with lean artful arrangements, contemplative melodies and deeply probing lyrics”
O Luasa describes the record as “an attempt to fuse a lot of my more esoteric influences into an album that I might listen to myself. Things like Sparklehorse, Wilco, Tom Waits, Marc Ribot, Son House, Ry Cooder”.
The bands debut performance took place at Cork Opera house with The White horse guitar club in January and you can see them again at White Horse in Ballincollig on March 30th.
