Singer Songwriter Daniel Murphy from Bantry is to play this year’s Trinity Ball, which takes place this Friday night April 4. Daniel’s slot at the major event was announced this week, as part of the final line-up for the sold out Ball.

Singing under the name Danny Battles, the rising star will play the prestigious Ball, which is attended by more than 8,000 revellers and is considered Europe’s biggest private party.  Other acts at the Ball this year include Example, Ben Pearce, 2 Many DJs, Le Galaxie, Original Rude Boys (ORB) and Duke Dumont.

Daniel’s placement on the Trinity Ball bill comes as a major break for his career while he is still a student. Daniel is considered a fresh new talent, writing and singing his own original material.

As a singer songwriter, he has gigged in Ireland and Europe.  Daniel was recorded for the RTE show, presented by film-maker and musician Philip King of Scullion fame, during the Other Voices Festival in Derry in February this year.  Daniel will sing his own song Heart Attack on the show in the coming weeks.

His first solo album is due later this year.  This summer he will play a series of events including the Westport Festival of Music and Food which also features Bell X1, Mundy, Sinead O Connor and David Gray.
