Blindboy’s increased notability away from his band Rubberbandits, has allowed for him to explore wider avenues and create perhaps outrageously mind-altering brainchildren which can only be described as courageous, yet bonkers.
Now with an audience of over 1,000,000.00 people listening and a new show going live with the BBC.
With a number one selling book under his belt and a podcast that has reached interest not only in Ireland & UK …. but internationally, the satirist could possibly single-handedly change people’s mind set on mental health and the deafening stigma it surrounds.
Outspoken, informed and empathetic, Blindboy engages his audience with an unusual touch of realism. There is a very authentic feeling of “freedom” he exhumes which allows his listeners and participants to openly speak their mind without judgement and no topic off limits – certainly an air of belonging encircling the space you find yourself in when listening or in company of Blindboy.
His latest innovative creation, The Blindboy podcast only espouses mental health issues but reaches further into an eclectic spectrum of current topics from gun laws to feminism, racism or a bit of history. Blindboy has it covered.
‘His uncanny ability to articulate what nearly everyone is thinking is unparalleled and something that is sorely needed in Irish society’. – The Daily Edge
