Artist Focus: The Cranberries

Some artists leave a legacy that stretches far beyond a great single or a number 1 album.

Artist Focus is a new series hosted by the extended Melodic Distraction family that deep dives into the life and times of the musicians that have defined the sound of modern music. From the stone cold classics to the unearthed gems and forgotten B-sides, our community tribute an hour of music by a single artist that has had a notable impact on their life.

Artist Focus is back with @lucy_bee_dj delving into the vast back catalogue of one of Ireland’s greatest musical exports – The Cranberries.

Fronted by the inimitable Delores O’Riordan, the group were one of the biggest acts to emerge during the 90s, making a name for themselves with their unique take on alternative rock.
