The Man Whom
The Man Whom is the moniker for Wexford- based singer songwriter, producer/composer and multi-instrumentalist Ian Doyle.
The Greatest Event is his debut Album. Hotpress 4.5/5 'Sing Till There's No Songs Left' features emotive harmonies, uplifting brass, and swagger in spades. 'Over And Under' brims with good vibes, while 'Leavin This Town', with its unsettling melancholy, is a handsome tune with a lyrical edge that makes it relevant to these forlorn times.
The string-tinged and choral 'Easier To Run' is almost illegally heart-breaking, while the restrained 'Call All The People' climbs with uncanny power, with Doyle taking it to higher and higher levels of elation. 'Puppeteers' is a long-held favourite of mine and 'Til It?s Gone' wraps it all up so you want to start all over again. The Greatest Event has enough charm and inventiveness to fill your head and nourish your soul. Eat it.
