Freshers Fortnight – Chasing Abbey

Described by Billboard as an act that “bends hip-hop swagger with pop shimmer and incredibly evocative lyrics” – Billboard US Chasing Abbey is a hip-hop/pop collective at the forefront of Ireland’s urban pop scene. Artists Outro, Bee Fade and Teddy C make up the group, hailing from the midlands of Ireland.

Childhood friends, the trio are multi-instrumentalist producers, rappers and singers whose expertise helped skyrocket Chasing Abbey to unparalleled industry success in 2017, earning the group a global record deal with 3 Beat UK/UMG worldwide, as well as becoming award-winning artists for their debut self-release That Good Thing (winning the prestigious Irish Song of the Year award).

Chasing Abbey’s second release Talk to Me exploded on radio, became an official track for the Football Association of Ireland 2018 and landed major television syncs. May 2018 saw the group release their third single Choices, which shot straight to the #1 in the charts within hours of its release. 

In 2018, Chasing Abbey brandished their live capabilities playing to crowds upwards of 20,000 supporting The Chainsmokers/Rita Ora at Dublin’s RDS stadium, and headlining festivals like Sea Sessions and Longitude (sharing the bill with Travis Scott and Post Malone), as well as supporting Zara Larson, Martin Garrix and Enrique Iglesias. The group’s debut tour The Rollout sold out across the country, seeing thousands of fans flock to their shows.

2019 saw Chasing Abbey release their debut EP ‘The Odyssey Project’. The EP premiered and was positively reviewed on Billboard US, marking Chasing Abbey as one of only a handful of Irish acts to get such recognition from Billboard. The Odyssey Project showed just what Chasing Abbey are capable of, parking for a moment their classic pop sound and favouring a vibe far more suited to hip-hop.

After a summer of festivals, a sold out Olympia show and their latest single Dominos doing the airplay rounds, Chasing Abbey are gearing up for a huge 2020.
