Corner Boy is the pseudonym of young Irish folk singer/guitarist Michael D’Arcy, who released his debut record the ‘Morning Morning E.P’ in February 2013 . From an early age Corner Boy began to hone his musical craft through various traditional, folk and rock groups/collectives. In September of 2011 he upped roots to Canada and through the bustling Montreal folk scene work started on the recording of his debut release.
Recorded in the secluded railway town of Lennoxville, Quebec, The ‘Morning, Morning E.P’ is a 5-track song book of energetic floor stompers and delicate melodies encapsulating the story of a year on the road traveling North America.
