The Stypes

The Strypes

Josh McClorey, Ross Farrelly, Pete O’Hanlon, and Evan Walsh aren’t even old enough to drink, but the four teenagers musical influences are mostly 1950’s and 60’s rock and blues legends. While many of their contemporaries are trying to emulate *NSYNC and New Kids On The Block, these Irish boys drew on Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, and The Rolling Stones as inspiration for their breakout EP Blue Collar Jane.
