Seán Silke, Songwriter
Seán Silke is a prolific composer and musician with over 500 original songs in his back catalogue. He composes songs (music and lyrics) in a variety of styles (dance, pop, love songs, country, crossover).
In 2018, Seán released “In the heart of the castle” (14 country-flavoured pop songs performed by Weekend Special); and a well-received single by country artist C.C. Cooper, called "He wants me back". “In the heart of the castle” was a standout country pop album of 2018. The band Weekend Special consists of Darien Chase (vocals), Rohan Healy (guitars, additional instrumentation), Al Quiff (upright and electric bass), David Virgin (vocals, guitar) and Seán Silke (pianos, strings).
In late 2019, Seán released “Unexamined Emotions” (14 pop songs dealing with affairs of the heart, sung by Dublin singer, Ellen Cosgrove). The album was arranged and produced by Chris Kabs. Chris is well-known on the Dublin dance scene.
In April 2020 Seán released “Unlucky in love” (15 dance songs featuring a variety of female artists and produced by Chris Kabs). The project was fortunate to be able to avail of an extensive team of singers, six in all. These were Darien Chase, Trez Gallagher, Toni Caffrey, Heather Lawrie, Lydia Sheils and Ellen Cosgrove. The lion’s share of the recordings was handled by HeatheR, Darien and Ellen.
Recently, Seán has teamed up with Rohan Healy to form the dance collective, Camden Place. Two of their singles have been released by Stockholm label PR Records ("Polishing Chrome" and "Too Much Space"). Camden Place have also released the electronica track, "Will I make it to Springtime", a collaboration with Magician's Assistant. In February 2021, DaCosta Records released "A life in photos", a further collaboration with Magician's Assistant and singer/songwriter Gráinne Hunt.
