The Guggenheim Grotto are a Dublin-based trio who have flexed most of their promotional muscles to date in the United States.

Aside from hugely positive reviews from the US print media for their Waltzing Alone debut album, the band have also enjoyed placements on a rake of TV shows, including Brothers & Sisters, One Tree Hill and Men in Trees.

What’s helped their cause Stateside is important radio support from such taste-maker shows and DJs as Nic Harcourt at Morning Becomes Eclectic on the Santa Monica-based KCRW and David Dye at Philadelphia’s WXPN.

The band release their second album, Happy the Man, in September and play Irish dates throughout September and October.
