Participant is Stephen Tiernan, a songwriter and producer from Dublin, Ireland. At its core Participant is fragile and emotionally direct songwriting, wrapped within a sonic armour of layered samples and textures. With 2 acclaimed EP’s to his name, ‘Bit Slow’ and ‘Content’, Tiernan has become known for his considered recordings, stunning music videos, and experimental live performances.
Recently Tiernan has collaborated with award-winning director Bob Gallagher (Girl Band, SOAK, Saint Sister) on the bleak yet beautiful video for ‘Your Better’, been remixed by Conor O’Brien of Villagers and performed a sold out headline show at The Little Museum of Dublin.
In the coming months, Participant will be playing a handful of intimate shows in support of his new cassette ‘Sampler’ and forthcoming single ‘Next Year’.
