And So I Watch You From Afar are one of five music acts to feature in the new billboard campaign.

Guinness Amplify Live will see 500 free gigs take place across five weeks in September and October.

The film, “The Artist’s Journey”, which also features London-based Irish musician, Wife, tells the story of artistes who have taken the creative plunge, facing daily obstacles and struggles in an attempt to make their dreams a reality.

The voiceover for the film was recorded by Irish actor, Liam Cunningham of Game of Thrones.

Rory Friar, guitarist with And So I Watch You From Afar, said: “We enjoyed being part of the filming process. The music industry is basically a joyful slog. It takes a lot of determination and effort but it is most definitely a worthwhile journey.”

Over the five weekends of Guinness Amplify Live, some of the biggest names in the music industry will also perform surprise gigs in pubs in unknown locations.

To date the line-up includes; Kodaline, Ellie Goulding, Walking On Cars, Daithí, Bastille, Disclosure and Jess Glynne.
