Since November 2005, Nialler9 has been enthusing about the music he loves whether it be indie, electronica, hip-hop, folk, dubstep or rock. Whatever – as long as it’s good. As Duke Ellington said “There are two kinds of music. Good music, and the other kind.” The blog has become an influential force on the Irish music scene and has led to Niall working for music magazines, national newspapers and a slot on the judging panel for the Choice Music Prize – the annual Irish album of the year award.
Over 2500 people visit Nialler9 daily to catch up on the chronicle of musical delights contained within. The site has won four in a row at the Irish Blog Awards for Best Music Blog in 2007, 2008, 2009 & 2010 as well as Best Music Site at the Irish Web Awards in 2009 and most recently, Nialler9 was voted the 5th Best Music Blog In The World in a poll of music blogging peers.
