Expression through creativity, Blackfish Collective is a multi-cultural, multi-faceted creative group from Dublin, Ireland. It is believed that creativity stems from a place of comfort, unhindered by society’s eyes. This group serves to make available such a space – a central hub. We celebrate those that do not ‘fit in’, along with those who do. We celebrate our being in this world.

Blackfish Collective is a space for a society of friends that come together and allows them to create from a place of comfort.

The uniqueness of each artist’s accent and diverse musical elements is what merges together to create Craic Appeal’s distinctive sound and rhythmic compositions. This high-powered unit is more than just a rap group, but rather a lifestyle, a brand, a product. A period of momentous progress resulted in Craic Appeal’s release of phenomenal tracks like ‘Rifles’, ‘Manners’, ‘Rap Lines’ and ‘Fallback.’ Their mixtape is set to release in December of this year 2016, and later their EP during the summer in 2017.
