Chasing Abbey nominated for 'Song of the Year' 2017
14th February 2018
TULLAMORE trio Chasing Abbey’s hit of 2017 That Good Thing has been recently nominated as ‘Song of the Year’ 2017 by an elite judging panel at the RTÉ Choice Music Awards.
The panel of judges is compromised of music professionals across a broad spectrum of the industry, and many factors are considered when selecting the shortlist for ‘Song of the Year’.
This nomination signifies yet another notch on the belt of this gifted music troupe from the midlands. 2017 proved itself as the year of Chasing Abbey, after the band became the most played Irish artist on radio shortly before signing a global record deal with Universal Music Group/3 Beat UK.
The Tullamore outfit - consisting of Ro, Bee and Teddy C - released their second single Talk to Me at the end of 2017, and that track as seen a similar explosion on radio. The track was also featured on Channel 5’s Celebrity Big Brother as well as featured on Spotify’s own New Music Friday UK playlist. The music video for Talk to Me was commissioned by Marisa Garner Associates, who are also responsible for music videos by Bruno Mars, David Guetta and Katy Perry. The video features a group of the guys’ friends from Tullamore too.
The nomination for Song of the Year sees Chasing Abbey shortlisted next to industry giants such as Niall Horan, The Academic and Gavin James.
