A.S. Fanning is a singer-songwriter from Dublin, Ireland.
Previously frontman and chief songwriter of Dublin bands Porn Trauma and The Last Tycoons, his first solo release was ‘Carmelita’ on 7-inch vinyl in late 2015. Since then he has been touring in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland and Ireland, with the Irish Times noting Fanning’s ‘observational eye about the local and global which made for the stuff of some meaty songs like ‘Carmelita’’.
Fanning’s songs are often lyrically driven, taking inspiration from Irish literary tradition and folk music as well as from 60s psychedelia and gothic rock n roll.
As a multi-instrumentalist he has played with acts such as Dublin troubadour The Mighty Stef, Berlin Industrial Electro outfit Suzies Ashes, and Irish songstress Candice Gordon, most recently producing and playing on Gordon’s soon to be released debut LP, ‘Garden of Beasts’.
He made his US debut at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas in March 2017 and his debut album, the self-produced ‘Second Life’, is due for release in October.
Carmelita is his first solo single and it’s OUT NOW.
Debut album coming soon.
