“I have a punk ethic with folk roots. That spirit was put into me. Because I grew up in Dublin people always say, “Oh, U2 must have had a profound impact on you’, but they didn’t. I got into The Clash, Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Christy Moore and The Dubliners. I always felt Stiff Little Fingers and Luke Kelly said more about my life than any U2 record. Everything I do or ever have done has been very deeply rooted in the spirit and tradition of Folk music.” Marc Carroll, March 2009

Marc Carroll is a very interesting guy. Whilst he hasn’t sold a bucket load of albums, he’s managed to gain Bob Dylan and Brian Wilson as fans – what more could a guy want?

Check out the video for Love Will Rule Our Hearts below. It’s taken from his forthcoming album, The Dust Of Rumour which is out on 29th June.
