“3 Will Tour” are three musical acts - Paul Creane, Paula Cox and The Man Whom - who are on tour promoting their three singles. It’s an innovative musical collaboration supporting a network of intimate venues across Ireland. 

Paula Cox is a vocalist and writer of music and songs. She was the lead singer in The Bush The Tree & Me from age 14. Signed to Epic in 2000, they recorded their first album with producer Stephen Street (The Smiths, Blur) and recorded and performed with artists such as Graham Coxon (Blur), Elbow and The Divine Comedy. Her solo album, to be released in 2017, will be mixed by Cenzo Townsend (Florence And The Machine, Snow Patrol, Maccabees). Paula is an avid collaborator and has recorded and performed with many artists (Cathy Davey, Colm Mac Con Iomaire, The Frames, Pierce Turner, writer Peter Murphy) as well as singing in theatre, choral productions, film and documentary scores. Her new single ‘Let’s Play A Game’ which features a stunning surrealist-pastoral video, is out now.

 Paul Creane is a songwriter from Wexford, Ireland. He has released two albums to critical acclaim with the Changing Band, Tommy Black & the Twelve Days of Lucy and The Clock, and has toured for the last decade throughout the US, Australia, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, Sweden and his native Ireland. He was a finalist for two years running in the prestigious International Songwriting Competition (panel judges included Tom Waits and Moby) with ‘All For You Baby’ (a top ten hit in Ireland) and ‘In Lieu Of You’, and had a starring role in the recently released Irish movie Staid, for which he also composed the soundtrack. His first solo album One Trick Blue will be preceded by the single ‘Need You Here To Love Me’ (which also featured in a key scene in Staid). 

The Man Whom aka Ian Doyle is a singer-songwriter, producer/composer and multi-instrumentalist from Wexford, Ireland. In 2011 Doyle released his debut album The Greatest Event to much critical acclaim, with Hotpress describing it as “silkily ethereal… with a tantalising air of the unexpected…” The Irish Times commended, “a marvellous voice, a great sense of musical adventure and a sussed approach to arrangements”  while The Sunday Times called it “a slick production with accomplished musicians, elaborate scores and scrupulous string arrangements”. Following a summer of festival appearances and a couple of years touring Ireland, the UK and Europe, Doyle spent four years writing and recording his second album The Dancer From The Dance. While mostly a self played and produced affair, the new album features collaborations with composer Peter Fahey and the Cornell Chamber Orchestra, recorded in Ithaca, New York, and conducted by Chris Younghoon Kim. The first single from the album is ‘Four Hurdles’.
