Over the years Lisa O’Neill has quietly built a reputation for herself on the Irish and international scenes. Now she has a growing following with her unique folk sound, strong song-writing and distinctive voice.
Her debut release Has an Album was followed in 2013 by Choice-nominated Same Cloth Or Not. Her 3rd album Pothole in the Sky was released to critical acclaim and is filled with tension and emotion, contextualising themes of love, loss, heartache and sorrow today through referencing tales from the past with beauty, honesty and defiance.
Lisa’s last release on the Rough Trade imprint River Lea, Heard A Long Gone Song has garnered huge acclaim both at home and abroad. ‘Blackbird’, a song from the last album has also recently been featured in Peaky Blinders winning Lisa lots of new fans.
