The Young Folk marry traditional acoustic instrumentation and vocal harmonies with contemporary production techniques resulting in a sound which has been compared with Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver and Crosby Stills & Nash.

“One of the most promising young bands to come out of Ireland in several decades” - Maverick Magazine

The Young Folk consists of Anthony Furey (vocals/guitar) and Paul Butler (vocals/piano/synth), both songwriters of exceptional talent. The duo are joined by New Zealander Alex Borwick (trombone/synth/percussion/banjo/vocals) and Marc Aubele (bass/mandolin/vocals) for their live shows, enabling The Young Folk to fully flex their musical muscle. Alex has been based in Dublin for 6 years where he works as a producer/recording engineer at the world-renowned Grouse Lodge Recording Studios, as well as playing in a variety of touring bands.

The Young Folk are signed to UK’s Pixie Pace Records, through which they released their debut album,
The Little Battle, in 2014, which went straight to #2 in the Zealand, and are continually winning over new audiences.

“Intoxicating voices, punctuating, warm harmonies that illuminate the horizon of a fiery energy, a show not to be missed” - Pause Musicale, France

"This is an accomplished musical aggregate that join the microdots between Noah & The Whale and old Greenwich Village Kweskin Jug Band. This is folk in Cuban heels.” - The Evening Herald.

“First-rate alternative folk meets indie pop... First Sign of Morning is a rare and beautiful album... There is a bright future for The Young Folk ahead.” - Soundz Magazine ENDS

The Young Folk New Zealand Tour 2019 (Supported by Culture Ireland).
