Saturday Shenanigans: Dessie Magee
Brighton based folk/rock singer-songwriter Dessie Magee, hails from Belfast, Northern Ireland.
With a diverse musical background, Dessie’s music has recently taken a softer approach drawing influences from the likes of Hozier, Ben Howard, Nathaniel Rateliff and Fink, though not leaving his heavy roots behind. Since then Dessie has gone on to sell out headline shows in Brighton, London and Northern Ireland, appeared at festivals such as Brighton Festival and Fringe Festival and had great success touring America the summer of 2017. His debut single ‘Maze’ was picked as BBC Radio 1’s ‘Track Of The Day’, The Unsigned Guide’s ‘Track Of The Month’, which spent over a month in the top five of the French charts and racked up over 100,000 video views. His next release ‘Castle’ gained over 105k video views.
