We reached no.15 in the Irish Singles Chart in October 2006 with our first single “My Luck is About to Change”. After working with engineer and co-producer Phil Hayes in Sun Studios in Dublin, our self titled debut album “Martin Staunton & the Lost Parade” was released on Jan 17th 2009.
“… Martin Staunton and the Lost Parade’s debut album is a powerfull, stirring affair. Staunton’s voice sounds like he gargles absinth for breakfast and is wonderfully evocative. His singing on ‘Way Through’, The Night’, ‘Under the Hills’ and more is sublime…”
“… the band are skilled players who perform with just the right amount of restraint, cannily preferring to show off Martin’s impressive pipes. This debut is a treasure-trove of sonic gold….”
