Brian Sheil from Carlow Town is this week launching a brand new, fully licenced (IMRO/PPI) internet radio streaming service.

Klubb FM was founded and created originally by Brian when he was just 15-years-old but the station was on and off as Brian went to study at university.

He went to the University of Central Lancashire, UK/Pulse College where he graduated top of his year with a First Class Honours Degree in Music Production.

Brian re-built Klubb FM from scratch by producing all imaging content and devising its own station sound for one of his Final Year Projects/Thesis at college; while carving out a career in the music business.

Now in his late 20s, Brian has launched a fully licensed worldwide internet radio operation, playing the biggest hits and hosting some of the top DJs across the world every week on the station.

The Carlow man is a music producer and mixer who works with artists from Ireland to the US to create chart topping records in diverse genres - he assisted Lady Gaga during the recording of her 2011 album, "Born This Way".

He went on to receive a gold disc for his mixing and mastering work on country star Derek Ryan's fifth album, "The Simple Things", which went to #1 in the Official Irish Album Chart.

Brian always wanted to have an internet station that was one of the best sounding, and that could rival any FM station from the actual sound of the stream to the team he has assembled around him to execute the delivery of a worldwide service.

He is currently the in-house sound/recording engineer and theatre technician at VISUAL Center for Contemporary Art & The George Bernard Shaw Theatre in Carlow, Ireland.
