About Big September
This gang of indie rockers burst onto the scene early 2013 and have stamped the name Big September firmly into the minds of many since their arrival. Five friends from school, all hailing from the town of Bray, certainly love to live the rock n roll lifestyle and have no qualms about it. This honesty breathes through the songs and especially the live performance.
Frontman, Scotty O'Neill, possesses charisma in abundance and has the ability to grab a crowd by the scruff of the neck, and shake them into submission without laying a finger on them. He is backed up by Dave Butler (guitar/vocals) who sings from the soul with a voice that could stand up in any band or musical era. Cillian Duane (lead guitar) is a blues boy through and through, with the classic unpredictability live, that stuns many an audience.
The rhythm section is made up with Dan Smith, a pounding drummer who makes you feel you’re glad you’re not on the other end of the sticks, and Graham “Naylor” O'Neill on bass and main song writing duties who delivers anthem after anthem with clever lyrics and simple hooks. The chemistry and true gang mentality of this group is seldom found, but this is the result of when it is found.
The name Big September means a lot to the band as it is dedicated to a close friend who passed away in recent years. A friend who always believed in the lads and this in turn spurred them on to prove they've got what it takes. They proved throughout 2013 that they can cut it on the live circuit playing all the major venues around the country with many sell out shows such as The Academy in December.
