‘Northern Soul’ now available to download four years on


AN album first released nearly four years ago has now finally become available to download.

Northern Soul was first released in 2012 to raise funds and awareness for two charities – North West Simon Community and Grow Mental Movement and features 12 classic soul hits.

Produced by former Donegal News journalist Sean Feeny with Mark Black, the album features some of the best singers and musicians Donegal has to offer, including the Henry Girls, Fidil, Tommy Callaghan, Declan McClafferty, and many more.


Following local media support, two big band performances at An Grianan Theatre, a mini tour in Germany and numerous smaller performances across Donegal, the musicians raised over €3,000 for the charities.

Thanks to DistroKid Music Distribution Service, Northern Soul is now available to download on iTunes and Amazon, and will be on Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, Rdio, Deezer, Tidal, YouTube Music, Microsoft Groove, and Beats/MediaNet in the coming days.

Hard copies of the album are still being sold in aid of the charities for €12, including postage and packaging. e-mail for a signed copy of Northern Soul!

‘Sean Feeny’s Northern Soul is a brave and beautiful collection of class soul songs re-interpreted by a new and fresh soul singer. What a breath of fresh Donegal air in every heartfelt note.’ – Brian Kennedy

‘This is more than an Irish twist, this is Celtic spirit with honesty and truth.
The combination of which left me saying YES! Thank you for that. Thank you for the courage and determination, thank you for the sincerity, thank you for making it your own work from the heart, thank you for your blood sweat and tears.’ – Ken Papenfus, Relish

‘I had a listen to Northern Soul many, many times and It’s great! I hope the CD is the start of a long-lasting career.’ – Kenneth McCluskey, The Commitments
