Irish hip-hop trio Chasing Abbey grab the attention of Billboard USA

The Tullamore natives have enjoyed huge success since releasing their debut single in 2017


Tullamore urban outfit Chasing Abbey have caught the attention of US music industry publication, Billboard.

The hip-hop trio have enjoyed huge success since their self-released debut single That Good Thing in 2017 – and now Chasing Abbey have peaked the interest of the most reputable music publication in the world.

Getting the thumbs up from Billboard hip-hop editor Carl Lamarre, Chasing Abbey can now add themselves to a relatively short list of Irish acts to have graced the bylines of such a prestigious outlet – a list that includes the likes of Hozier, Niall Horan, The Script and U2.

Their debut EP, The Odyssey Project, will premiere on Billboard exclusively for two weeks, before going on general release on April 19th.

Accompanying their interview, Chasing Abbey also offer a track by track breakdown of the EP, which was produced by them in their Tullamore studio before having additional production added by the UK’s Jay Weathers (Stormzy, Rita Ora, Not3s).

The Billboard piece event cites a potential US “takeover” by this Offaly trio, and with such an industry giant behind them, perhaps that takeover isn’t too hard to conceive.

Chasing Abbey play The INEC Killarney, Cyprus Avenue Cork and The Olympia Theatre Dublin this week as part of their aptly named Culchie Kid Tour.

Remaining tickets for the shows are available here.
