Over the years Lisa O’Neill has quietly built a reputation for herself on the Irish and international scenes and now 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 third 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. Garnering a 5 star review from the Guardian on release and a coveted ‘Best Folk Album of 2019’ from the same publication, Lisa has also been nominated in 4 categories at the 2019 UK Folk awards and 5 categories at the 2019 Irish Folk awards, winning one for best original folk song.

The Guardian’s Folk Album of the Year
Irish alt-folk and electronica alchemist Seamus Fogarty released his third album ‘A Bag Of Eyes’ at the end of 2020. His second album for Domino Records, it follows on from the success of 2017’s ‘The Curious Hand’, an album that was widely praised for its blend of electronics and traditional instrumentation. He released his debut full length, God Damn You Mountain, on cult Scottish label Fence Records in 2012.
Originally from County Mayo, Fogarty now resides in London, and the capital provides the canvas for much of Fogarty’s output. He has toured the UK & Europe many times, performed in the main hall of The Barbican in London and on stage at many notable festivals including the Green Man Festival in Wales, Eurosonic in Holland and Haldern Pop in Germany. His songs have featured extensively on both BBC Radio 3 and BBC 6Music and he has recorded live sessions for Mark Radcliffe on his BBC Radio 2 show and Cerys Matthews on BBC 6Music.
