New 70 strong group ‘The X Collective’ launches

It’ll see artists sharing their resources and skills to flourish during these difficult times.

Today Oiche Events launched ‘The X Collective’. A new 70 strong collective with music and artistic expression at its core.

Founded by Emily Shaw (Oiche Events) and Ele Breslin (ZAPHO), the  collective will bring together a range of artists and creatives that can share their skills, resources and connections with each other.

Co-founder Emily Shaw said, “The music industry has been hit hard by the restrictions that are in place today with the news of cancelled gigs and events. Now seems like no better time to join together, encourage and launch this collective as we had originally intended prior to Covid-19, and to open up a space where collaboration is possible and creatives can continue to create.”

“The X Collective will see each artist collaborate with a fellow musician to create original songs, passing it on to our creatives to package the product which we will then release via the collective and promote as a community. Under the current climate these collaborations will be from a distance.” 

The X Collective has already seen some of Ireland’s leading artists joining the collective including: Shiv, Tolu Makay, Shookrah, Zapho, ELKAE, Toshín, Shy Mascot, Gemma Bradley, Mutant Vinyl, Brenna Carroll, Zeenie Summers as well as a host of music industry professionals working to promote and elevate the musical industry landscape in Ireland and beyond.
