The Music Show is delighted to announce that Jape have been confirmed as one of the many acts set to play the Live Stage at Ireland’s largest ever music exhibition. Fresh from being nominated for the Meteor Choice Music Prize for the critically acclaimed Ocean of Frequency, Jape are currently on tour in Ireland and promoting their brand new single ‘Scorpio’, which will be released on Friday, March 9.

On their album Ocean of Frequency – the follow up to 2008’s Meteor Choice Music Prize winner Ritual – Jape draw inspiration from the likes of Prefab Sprout, Caribou and the solo albums of Brian Eno, to create earworm melodies with the musical innovation of Beck and Steve Mason.

Using an inventive mix of live instruments, hardware samplers and sequencers, Jape knit together an eclectic blend of meticulously crafted lyrics and electronic rhythms that flit comfortably across a myriad of genres.

We would encourage everyone to get down to the RDS to see Richie and the band wow the enthusiastic Music Show audience!

The Music Show takes place February 25 and 26 in the Main Hall, RDS. Tickets are available form
