Hot new up and comer Shane Joyce is set to release his new single “Those Who Pay Rent” which will be available from May 20th, and will be the singer’s first release as a solo artist. Shane was first discovered during his days of busking on the streets of Kilkenny, where bassist Brian McGrath spotted him and decided he would be perfect for his new project – The Midnight Union Band. Shane continues to tour and put out records with the band while he embarks on his solo career.

Influenced by artists such as Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, Mr. Joyce started to write music at the age of 15 and since then has gone on to become the lead singer of the well known group ‘The Midnight Union Band’ and is now broadening the lengths of his music career by becoming a solo music artist.

The young Shane Joyce although new to the scene as a solo artist is already turning heads with his fight the man inspired music with tracks such as ‘The Same Old Song’ and tributes to Leonard Cohen. Shane is a fantastic singer with a passion for what he does and I know that he is surely destined for fame and glory. This single will be the first of the many more great hits to come, I wish Mr. Joyce all the best of luck with the rest of his career and, therefore, this single truly deserves my 5 out of 5 stars
