After studying Performing Arts on a soccer scholarship at a university in Indiana, Irwin moved to London to form pop band, The Hoosiers, scoring a number one album with their debut ‘The Hoosiers & The Trick to Life’ and a top ten follow up with ‘The Illusion of Safety’. Comfortable collaborating with artists from diverse genres he has written with Hudson Taylor, Freestylers, Alexander Wolfe, Eg White, Elliot Kennedy, Rick Nowels and Cathy Dennis. Drawn to melodious top-lines and unique angles in lyrics, it’s Irwin’s desire to write music that matters; music that has an identity and helps to establish an artist and set them apart from the crowd.
As an artist himself Irwin is heavily involved with writing for London-based art-collective: The Sea & I. Known for producing concerts with a lighting designer, collaborating with London Chamber Brass, London Contemporary Voices choir and the Iskra string quartet they make a cinematic, baroque-pop noise that needs to be seen to be believed. After several years hiatus The Hoosiers are back making a noise in the studio and on the touring circuit with a barrage of new and constantly evolving rock-pop tracks, which The Sunday Times recently cited as “pop perfection”.
