The Grainne Duffy Band are heading to Doncaster this Saturday to promote their New Single “What Am I Supposed to Do?”, out tomorrow

This up and coming Irish artist, who has been steadily building her fan base at home in Ireland and abroad in the U.K., Europe and Scandinavia, is set to make her mark with the next album and leading the way is this infectiously catchy and rock driven single.

She will be performing at the Icebreakers at Doncaster Dome this Saturday.

Opening with a ‘killer’ hook on guitar, Grainne is placing herself among the new wave of rock acts like Kings of Leon and Arctic Monkeys who are bringing this ‘new rock’ to the masses.

Recent Brit award winner, Alex Turner from the Arctic Monkeys summed it up best in his recent acceptance speech, “Rock ‘n’ Roll, it just won’t go away”, citing that while it has been hibernating it is now back and it’s “looking better then ever!”

By raiding her elder sisters record collection, Grainne gained exposure at an early age to influential artists like The Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac and The Pretenders, after which she soon started to develop her own musical tastes. Hearing the subtle playing of Peter Green on songs like ‘Need you Love so Bad’ and ‘Albatross’ was to pave the way for Grainne to start listening to other guitarists such as B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan and of course, the legendary Rory Gallagher.

The wonderful mix of blues rock and soul in her original material and her treatment of a few carefully selected standards are charged with true emotion and feeling that can win over any audience. No one can deny her passion when they hear her sing or ignore her emotion when they hear her play and with a unique presence, the sky’s the limit for this highly talented and personable artist!
