To clebrate highly anticipated Roisin O's appearance at The Whelans on Sep 21st, we have a pair of tickets to give away to one very lucky winner. To enter the competition please login and answer a question.
Her first single ‘Here We Go’ taken from the album, is available for download now and is an enticing taster for fans ahead of the album release on 3ú Records. Róisín and her band have been crafting this album for the last year and are currently in producer David Odlum’s studio in France putting the finishing touches to the much anticipated recording.Performing and writing since she left school, Róisín added musicians Alan Tully (guitars and vocals), Brian Murphy (bass and vocals) and Ruth O'Mahony Brady (keys and vocals) to her act, and together they have honed the Roisin O acoustic-rock sound.
The busy 23 year old can boast support slots with The Coronas, Imelda May, Mary Black, Brad Paisley and Robert Cray on many of Ireland's biggest stages, and was invited to perform live on the Pat Kenny Show on RTE 1 and Ireland AM on TV3 among others. She has recorded with Paul Brady and Mary Black and her song ‘Drifting’ was chosen for the latest ‘Woman’s Heart Now’ compilation, alongside Lisa Hannigan, Wallis Bird, Cathy Davey and many more; still her powerful vocals were not overshadowed in the company of these excellent, established female singers.
"Her spectacularly limber voice is just the start – Miss O possesses a keen ear for a summery refrain…. Throw in a heart-stopping live show and we’ve got everything we look for in an Irish rose." – Celine Murphy , Hot Press 'Ones to watch 2012'
