Special guests help Aileen and KJ launch new single

By Maria Pepper

The Remedy Club, featuring husband-and-wife outfit KJ McEvoy and Aileen Mythen, were joined by three special guests for the launch of their new single, in Fusion Cafe in Henrietta Street.

Eleanor McEvoy who is KJ's sister, Ian Doyle aka The Man Whom and Simon Farrell turned up to support the american/roots duo as they released the single 'Come On' from their forthcoming album Lovers, Legends and Lost Causes.

The release coincided with the posting of a new video by the Russian director Andrey Sorokin and the start of a nationwide tour.

'Come On' is described as a fiery country ballad with chiming guitar from KJ and Aileen's passionate vocals soaring over a country/roots backing and was mixed and mastered at the Room & Board Studios in Nashville, Tennessee. It was released on the Remedy Club's own label High Flying Disc Record.

Lovers, Legends and Lost Causes will be the third album by the pair but their first as The Remedy Club as they previously performed under the name B and the Honeyboy.

On Saturday, July 15, they will play at the Bridgebrook Arms in Thomastown, County Kilkenny at 10 p.m. and on Tuesday, July 18, they will support Freddie White at the Clonmel Folk Club.

Further dates are planned for late summer and early autumn.
