Cronin is the musical project of Irish brothers Johnny and Michael Cronin. Along with Fiachra Milner and Brain Murphy they record their songs at their own Transmission Rooms recording studio.
Returning from the UK to their native Ireland in the early 2000’s they started releasing music under The Aftermath name for which they earned critical and commercial success in the charts and radio.
They collaborate regularly with legendary Pogues frontman Shane MacGowan, appearing with him on studio sessions, live gigs and TV shows. In addition, they performed his classic A Rainy Night in Soho at his wedding with actor Johnny Depp on guitar.
Cronin have appeared on stage with Bono and Nick Cave. Pete Doherty has dedicated songs on stage to them. Noel Gallagher hid behind their CD cover to escape the London paparazzi and Niall Horan has attended their gigs.
Friday July 3rd Cronin release their digital mini-album A View From The Next Room. You can presave here.
