Ceann

Ceann formed as an Irish Rock Band in Pittsburgh in 2005 with the release of their first album of all-original material "Almost Irish." Before that, Ceann was an acoustic trio that played Irish pub music across the northeast. Ceann continue to mix fun Irish music with their popular originals. While some of Ceann's songs revolve around the culture of being Irish Americans many of Ceann's most popular songs have distinctively more contemporary themes. They're songs appeal far beyond the normal reach of Irish music and have given them access to unprecedented markets for an Irish band. As one of the only Irish bands to find success on commercial radio, Ceann's fan base has grown as quickly outside of Irish music circles as quickly as it's grown within them. Their cross market appeal has allowed them to be featured at Irish festivals and at non-Irish music festivals to equal success. Ceann have also become one of the most sought after college music acts in the country.

With the release of their album "Rave, Rant, Lose Pants" in June of 2007, Ceann's reach extended even further. The release of the album coincided with their song "Pretty On The Inside" being selected as the NPR song of the day. The overwhelming listener response led to the song subsequently being added to a large number of AAA radio play lists across the country. Their song "Blame the Viking" is being used as the theme song to an NPR radio program as well as it's inclusion in a motion picture soundtrack. In 2007 Ceann appeared on over 20 commercial radio stations across the northeast including Country, Classic Rock, Alternative, Talk Radio, and Top 40 radio stations. Ceann's tenacity and willingness to consistently average over 220 shows per year is one of the keys to their success and guarantees that Ceann remains one of the busiest bands in the country.

In two years Ceann have become one of the most successful independent bands in the country. Over the last two years Ceann have played more shows than any other national touring Irish band in the country. They've sold more CD's and have appeared on, or have had their music played on, more radio stations than 80% of all bands releasing CD's on music labels over the same two-year period. They've been singled out by music industry executives as one of the most successful business models for independent music artists.

Musically, Ceann have made a name for themselves as one of the most fun, entertaining and musically adventurous bands in the country. With their roots in Irish music, Ceann mix in modern musical styles and a cutting edge sense of humor that has won them fans across the globe.
