​NEWS


  • Next gig is an intimate solo show by the fireside at The Ivy Naas Nov 18th.


  • Looking forward to playing Gigonometry at The Workman's Club on Dec 8th. Full band show.


  • Was back in with Martin Quinn at Jam Studios, Kells at the start of November. We laid down all the vocals for the EP, finished some guitar parts and of course got some harmonica in there too. Ready for mixing now. Really happy with how it sounds, can't wait for people to hear it!


  • Debut single 'Safe Haven' was released a few months back. Check out some glowing reviews below and the official video at the bottom of the page.


  • ​“His lyrics are honest, impressive and hard hitting…There are echoes of Dylan and Jeff Buckley about him…A contender for the best Irish male artist that we will have for some time to come.” Musicwand http://musicwand.ie/peco-music-debut-solo-single-safe-haven/


  • ​“There's something strikingly likeable about this troubadour's music and lyrics…it has a warm familiarity…but his lyrics aren't naive or meaningless, they're backed up with thought and a restrained but intent-filled passion…he's giving us cause for great expectations.” Remy’s Music and Film       http://thebestofmusicandfilm.blogspot.ie/2016/03/single-peco-safe-haven.html


  • We're on Spotify! Follow this link to hear 'Grace Isn't Easy' https://open.spotify.com/track/7KLshsEyeyScf6t38vgaDZ



  • First bit of American press recently. In the USA's most widely read Irish-American weekly no less, The Irish Echo. A very positive review, "Lyrics match spirit in McLoughlin's music, he's a poet as well as a musician."                             http://irishecho.com/2015/10/eirecana-craze-has-some-new-recruits/


  • "With the talented penmanship and melodies that you can’t help but bob along to, Peco is an artist to keep your eyes on."

     Eirecana     http://americanaireland.blogspot.ie/2015/10/pecovalentine-black-talented-singer.html


  • "There's something terribly authentic about Peco's music...it really feels like he could be the real deal, a strong contender for the local folk throne which will also appeal greatly beyond these shores."

​       Remys Music and Film​       http://thebestofmusicandfilm.blogspot.ie/2015/10/introducing-peco.html


  • ​​“Solid folk-acoustic sound…with smooth vocals that ooze an air of Bob Dylan at points… I’ve no doubt that there’s plenty of more to come from his emerging repertoire.”

  • Peco recently made his debut on American TV with his song 'Retrospect'. It was used on the long running show (13 seasons) RoadtripNation.
