What's Goin' On?

Remy Music Website

Our mission is simple, we plan to bring you the best of Independent Irish and International music, our recommendations, music we think you'll like because we've liked it too. We'll be reviewing singles, EP's, albums, doing interviews and hitting the best that the live music circuit has to offer. We'll also be giving the odd film recommendations and reviews, although music will be the priority. We hope you find something you like here at Remy and thanks for taking the time to visit!

Who are we? What are we?

Damien Dempsey Remy's Music & Film

Remy is the editor of, well, Remy, which began in the summer of 2012 as a filing cabinet where he could store music and film recommendations for his friends in one handy spot. Over time the focus shifted to new releases from Independent Irish artists and subsequently International acts as well. In 2014 the blog made it to the Final of the Irish Blog Awards in the company of some of the countries top music websites such as Nialler9, GoldenPlec and The Last Mixed Tape. 2015 saw a semi-final spot at the Irish Web Awards before another Finalist appearance at the 2016 Irish Digital Media Awards.

In addition to running the blog Remy is also a presenter with music video website The Sound Feed for just under a year, interviewing Irish artists and presenting live performances. He was once in a band himself a long time ago, is an avid collector of vinyl and would consider 70's rock, soul and blues to be his favourite genres, although he regularly gets down to pop, hip-hop, electronic, folk and post-punk soundz. 

Noel Duplaa CFIT Not Monsters

Noël is a film and music obsessive who you may remember from such bands as Tidal District, The Dying Seconds, Glomar, CFIT and Not Monsters. He has been avidly reviewing things loudly to anyone within earshot for many years now. Writing those thoughts down for others to see is pretty new though…

You can find some of Noël's music at the below links;

James McGregor Remy's Music & Film The Clockworks

James is the latest addition to the team, and another musician, who fronts Galway band The Clockworks who recently released their debut single, 'Girls Like You', which featured in Hot Press Magazine, who declared the band; "a rising act you should be keeping an eye and an ear on". 

To hear the music James and The Clockworks make, head to the below link.

Gavin is an Honorary Fellow of Remy, he used to do film reviews before he got famous, but still stops by for the Annual Gavin & Remy's Film Review, where we recommend films that we enjoyed during the year, but that might not have necessarily made box-office splashes. When he's not making his own films he's either at the cinema or buying novelty jumpers.
