Featuring collaborations and co-writes from an eclectic mix of artists such as FeliSpeaks, Célia Tiab, LENII, Arthur Valentine, April and Orla Gartland, and with well over 8+ million streams amassed on the project already, 1000 Beasts has established himself as an artistic force that straddles the line between indie, soul & electronic music.
The concept behind 1000 Beasts is simple. One producer who writes & collaborates with different artists (the “beasts”) on each track to create music greater than the sum of its parts.
Recently released “Brigitte Bardot” featuring Malaki has picked up extensive national radio airplay as well as international recognition on publications such as Earmilk, Notion, Backseat Mafia & Flex. ‘NYCBB‘ feat Celia Tiab was synced in Sally Rooneys (Normal People), ‘Conversations With Friends’ & ‘Citroen‘ feat. Seamus Harty will be featured in an upcoming episode of Bloodlands (BBC). A recent collaboration with Tomike also led to a collaboration with Body & Soul Festival in conjunction with Sounds From A Safe Harbour on their new film ÉRIU Live. 1000 Beasts made an impression in 2022 with packed-out slots at Body & Soul and PrimaVolta Limerick for Culture Night, as well as a sold-out tour around Ireland celebrating the release of Naruda.
1000 Beasts takes a live band with him on the road, consisting of drums, bass, guitar, sax, electronics and some featured vocalists. Having played a midnight slot on the Global Roots Stage at All Together Now, an Irish Tour is due to be announced early in 2024.

“ I first met Tomike during the pandemic when we collaborated on ‘Ériú’ with Body & Soul. After working
together on the remix of ‘It’s Like’, I knew I wanted her to be part of my upcoming album. I sent her some
beats, she sent back some ideas, and Cherry Delight was born! I love the track – it’s a perfect mix of our
styles, bringing a fresh vibe while still capturing the essence of my earlier work. So excited about it!” –
“Cherry delight is a song about finally beginning to see the light in life after a period of being in darkness,
it has a very optimistic and reflective message to it. Collaborating with Cian on this was a pleasure and I
am excited for the track to be released. ” – Tomike
