The New York Times claims Ike Reily is “an eloquent wiseguy whose songs evoke Bob Dylan and Paul Westerberg. Mr. Reilly, a former bellhop and gravedigger from Chicago, has the kind of high-energy, hook-heavy folk-rock sound that turns every head in a bar, while his nasal vocals are unsparingly sardonic:“The friends that you rely on are the train tracks that you lie on.”

Check out his single "When Irish Eyes Are Burning" from his forthcoming album, due out May 8th here:
