From that 2 week recording session in a cottage near the remote fishing village of Schull on the south coast of Ireland Starlight Drive
Juno Falls debut album was born. After much radio-play success Myles O Reilly attracted the attentions of major labels and signed with Richard Branson's V2 music in 2006 with whom he released the critically acclaimed album 'Weightless' in 2007.
Juno Falls have often been compared to many of the New Acoustic Movement
's bands spawned in the new century such as Elbow
, Iron and wine
, and Turin Brakes
. Although accessible and crossover, Myles O Reilly is never predictable and delivers music that is always mature, quirky and unique. Affording at every turn to surprise and sometimes perplex the listener while staying within the boundaries of conventional immediate song structure.
In recent times, O'Reilly has started to use a sampler / loop pedal to "sample" self-made sounds throughout songs in his live shows. The most talked about feature to his live set is his solo re-working of Juno Falls hit '' using only vocal loops.
