    http://www.facebook.com/thepleaofficial The Plea "Feel It Ticking" (Montage of clips) from the Gideon Music Festival, 2011. Groningen, The Netherlands. The Plea are the brothers Doherty; Denny and Dermot from the small town of Ballyliffen, County Donegal who plied their trade busking on the streets of London, before moving to Boston, where by day they worked on building sites and by night our dynamic duo played the city's bustling, Irish pub circuit. They spent a year in Minnesota after an American major label funded an album recorded in a big budget studio, but it never saw the light of day. So in 2009, back in Ballyliffen, the brothers brought in drummer Gerry Strawbridge and bassist Paul Toland, wrote a batch of new songs and posted them on their MySpace page. Interest from labels was immediate, but one offer in particular intrigued them. The founders of legendary, Belgian, dance label R&S Records were so impressed by the songs and after lengthy discussions on Skype they signed the band and became their first ever rock signing. The band have just finished recording their debut album with Chris Potter (The Verve, The Rolling Stones, U2) which will be released later this year, but in the meantime open your heart up to The Plea. http://www.facebook.com/thepleaofficial Members: Denny Doherty - Vocals, Electric - Acoustic Guitars, Piano, Dermot Doherty - BV's, Electric - Acoustic guitars, Paul Toland - Bass, Gerry Strawbridge - Drums Label: Planet Function (a subdivision of R&S Records)

      'The Plea, Send it Out' Recorded live in Ghent, Belgium at The Charlatans 2nd November 2011 Shot on the Sony NEX FS100, lens whacking technique. http://www.facebook.com/thepleaofficial At the heart of The Plea are the Doherty brothers Denny and Dermot who hail from the small town of Ballyliffen, County Donegal. They are joined by drummer Gerry Strawbridge and bassist Paul Toland. The band have been busy in the studio and have just finished recording their debut album with Chris Potter (The Verve, The Rolling Stones, U2) which will be released in the new year. The band have already honed their musical talent and sound, having spent a time performing in America and a year in Minnesota recording a big budget studio album with a major American record label, which unfortunately was never released. The Plea went back to their roots and put together a whole new batch of material which quickly drew immediate interest from the founders of legendary Belgian, dance label R&S Records. The band have now found an amazing creative match with their record label and are just getting started. Their single 'The Odyssey' is set for release early October.
