Warren DalyWarren-Daly-WASH-poetry-spoken-work-electronic-music-live-at-Doors-Phnom-Penh-5

With a background in pirate radio, clubs and festivals, Warren Daly has been creating and performing his own music and live visuals since the curtain closed on the last millennium. His experience in the Irish music scene led him to co-found Invisible Agent, releasing its first 12″ vinyl in 2004. He continues to run this internationally-focused record label from Phnom Penh, Cambodia, promoting vinyl, print, and digital releases from around the globe.  The disparate sounds of Ireland, South Africa and Cambodia serve as living inspiration for Daly, and while Invisible Agent continues to showcase a cavalcade of emerging talent, his eclectic approach to art has propelled him into the studio and out onto the stage with a series of live shows, remixes, and collaborations. Warren is also a member of WASH, you can expect to hear their 2nd studio recorded album in 2016.
