Noel Hogan was one of the surprise special guests yesterday at “Metis Ireland”, an event in aid of 2 local charities, Pieta House and Limerick Suicide Watch. Concert held in Limerick at Dolan’s Warehouse, the famous local pub, so yes Noel kinda played home.

After Dolores last month, it’s was Noel’s turn to appear on stage to play 2 Cranberries songs “Zombie” and “Linger”.

Singer Emma Langford posted on Facebook a video of “Zombie” with the following comment:

It was *just a bit* nerve-wracking singing Zombie with its actual writer playing guitar right behind me…
Kind of incredible though?
Na… Totally. Totally incredible.

Thanks – endless immeasurable thanks – to Karl Daly of Metis Ireland for making this gig happen; to Dolans Pub for hosting the occasion; to all the artists who gave their time and talents and to everyone who came out to support Pieta House and Limerick Suicide Watch; to Dan Murphy and Dermot Sheedy of Hermitage Green, Nile St. James and Cein Daly for sharing a stage with me; and Noel Hogan of The Cranberries for writing such an epic tune, giving his time, and allowing us to perform it on a great night full of great intentions for a great cause.

I love Limerick, and music.

Noel Hogan: New self-produced project for release early next year

January 15, 2015  |  3 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Noel Hogan

Noel Hogan recently gave an interview published online on audient.com
Not necessarily well-known to the general public, Audient is a company producing professional audio equipment qualified by Noel as “perfect for me”.

In this interview Noel talks about his personal equipment related to Audient and gives a clue on his recent work:

New material with vocals that I’ve been working on for a few years is coming together now. We don’t have a title yet, but it’s due for release early next year

 

The next few months will see me working from my home studio, but after that it will be a combination of here and working in France. The next project is in the early stages. It combines the talents of bands both in France and Ireland to see what the end result brings. This is a big project that will take up most of the year.

Depending on when the interview was given the “early next year” Noel is talking about probably is early 2015 which means soon (or is it early 2016?).

Last October 8, Noel Hogan posted a little teaser on his public Facebook saying “Something is coming” with some kind of a new “NH” logo.

Most of people then supposed it was a new website coming and they were right!
Yesterday Noel posted again about this topic and announced on Facebook the official launched of www.noelhogan.com


UPDATE 2017:

www.noelhogan.com is no longer and the address now links to cranberries.com

“The Pigtown Fling” on Irish TV tonight

September 26, 2014  |  1 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Noel Hogan

Tonight at 8:30 PM (Irish time) airs on RTÉ One a TV show called “The works”. This is a 30 min show that includes a lot of various reports. So “The Pigtown Fling” part should not be that long… well, we’ll see!

Not living in Ireland or not receiving this channel?
Not a problem: you all remember how to watch the streaming on the internet for “The Voice of Ireland”, thanks to Irishsoul from Italy. Yes her great work still works fine. You have then no excuse for not watching/recording tonight’s show.
