NI Unplugged – Fundraising Album for Help Musicians NI

“NI Unplugged” is a digital compilation of 50+ N.I. artists, that has been created during the UK lockdown. It features bands and solo musicians that would be currently active in Northern Ireland, playing acoustic versions of their own original songs.

Some of the acts included are Brand New Friend, Sister Ghost, Gender Chores, and Wynona Bleach, to name a few. 

  • Every penny raised from purchases will be donated to Help Musicians NI
  • The album features songs across various genres and also made by musicians from a range of ages
  • It has been created following the UK health and safety guidelines for social distancing. Whether one member with a single acoustic guitar or a full band with the means to record remotely from their homes.
  • The initial idea to its release has taken less than 4 weeks.
  • Rocky O’Reilly at Start Together Studios Belfast kindly donated his time to master the compilation.
