March Artist Spotlight


All you want: Kodaline

Most people know Kodaline for 2012’s achingly gorgeous track “All I Want,” but this Dublin quartet has been cranking out emotion-churning guitar rock since the mid-aughts. Mark, Jason, Vinny and Steve spent much of 2014 writing and recording their second album, Coming Up for Air. The record hit the streets in February 2015 and the band is supporting it with dates across North America and Europe.
