Getting Cozy With… The Academic!

The AcademicHey everyone, we’re The Academic!

We’re a 4-piece band hailing from Mullingar, Ireland. We formed in early 2012 and consist of Craig Fitzgerald, Matt Murtagh, Stephen Murtagh and Dean Gavin. We met in secondary school and after realising we were all terrible at sports, decided to start a band. We like to base our sound around catchy guitar melodies and try to make our music as unique as possible. We’ve been gigging around Ireland for the last year and are planning to release our debut single ‘Bear Claws’ this Spring. We will also be embarking on an Irish tour and hopefully recording a lot more material in the near future. We’re always writing new stuff, so keep an eye out for loads more songs very soon. For now, you can listen to some of our songs on SoundCloud and YouTube!

Big love from The Academic!
