Name: Nolan Donnelly

Where You’re From: Providence, Rhode Island

Last gig you attended: Alpha Male Tea Party at The Empire (with support from Bosco Ramos, Bicurious and Willoware Jackson – crazy cool lineup!)

Favourite album: Mellowdrone’s ‘Angry Bear’. Beautiful stuff.

Most memorable gig: Mosmo Strange got to play the main stage at Culture Night 2017, it was life-affirming being received so well on such a big stage!

Describe yourself in 5 words or less: “smoking ass and eating grass”

The best thing about Northern Ireland: My lovely Northern Irish girlfriend

Worst song you’ve ever heard? Hard to choose the worst, but I’ve never understood Ed Sheeran. Or Africa by Toto – not the worst but everyone needs to chill out.

What is your most valued material possession? Probably my fur coat. That thing has gotten me so many easy compliments.

Favourite line from a song? “I just want my time and my mind intact / When they’re both gone, you can’t buy ’em back”

Mosmo Strange launch their new EP at the Limelight Belfast on the 15th August 2018. For more details, click here
