Eugene McGuinness – Artist Information | The Camden Crawl 2012

McGuinness began writing music at the age of 15. He moved to Liverpool to attend the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts (LIPA) after leaving school in London. While he was in Liverpool, he made friends with fellow LIPA alumni The Wombats and even performed for Paul McCartney. Eugene McGuinness is gloriously out of time and yet at the same time thoroughly modern, with one foot in reality and the other somewhere else entirely, where every silver lining has a cloud and one unexpected turn of phrase can lead you down a new musical rabbit hole.
