JJ Bloom is the musical alter ego of Conor McQuaid from Dunboyne, Co.Meath. He lists his main influences as Hall & Oates, Tom Misch and The Style Council. Over the last three years, JJ has been busy building his home studio and writing music building up to his debut single "Always You". The 23 year old has already established himself as a serious songwriting talent having written and worked with Jake Carter, John Linhart and Le Trottier d'en Face. He is also a former member of Dúlamán who made it to the final of Germany's Got Talent and ended up being signed by Sony Germany. JJ Bloom says he struggled to find his own sound but describes his new single as 'a little bit of funk, a little bit of soul and a little bit of pop'.

Watch the official video for "Always You":

"Always You" was written, mixed and produced by JJ Bloom himself whilst it was mastered by Fergal Davis who has previously worked with Republic Of Loose, The Divine Comedy and Muse. The song is upbeat, catchy as hell and damn funky. It will definitely put a bit of pep in your step and you will be singing along instantly. A fine first release from an exciting young talent.
