Live Gig Video(s): watch behind-the-scenes footage of Kodaline at the Jameson Bow Street Sessions and them talking about their history

Dublin pop success story Kodaline have had a wild ride the last 3 years. It seems like yesterday I saw them play at Maggie Mae’s at SXSW 2013, before their meteoric rise to global fame.

Last month, the band – Steve Garrigan, Mark Prendergast, Jason Boland and Vinnie May, Jr. – took part in a special Bow Street Sessions show at Dublin Academy on the 16th of March. They performed alongside County Donegal’s Little Hours (who I saw open for The Staves last spring at Dublin Olympia), Dingle’s Walking on Cars, Canadian act July Talk and the local Dublin Street Choir. The Bow Street Sessions are curated and put on by Jameson Whiskey, in partnership with the famed, long-running Irish music and politics magazine Hot Press.

In the first embed below, you can enjoy some exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of Kodaline preparing for their moment on the night and their first-ever live appearance at the Academy, along with some clips of the other acts. Directly below it, we’ve also found a video called ‘Our Story’, which sees the members of Kodaline talk about their humble beginnings in their own words.
