|We're delighted to welcome Lisa on board for our UK and European tour!
Her third album Pothole In The Sky is out now and has celebrity fans ranging from Kevin Rowland (Dexy's) to Billy Bragg.
You can find out more about Lisa and buy the album from the Lisa O'Neill website.
Kevin Rowland (Dexy's): "She’s just pure, man. She is a real artist. Straight form the heart. From that moment on, we became good friends. It is unusual that a day goes by where we don’t text or email or something. She is the best talent I’ve seen in a long time. She inspires me."
Leagues O'Toole writes: "Lisa O’Neill has a remarkable voice; a Cavan twang, a growl, a song-call. It can be many things. She needed to make an album about that voice. ‘Pothole in the Sky’ is a recording of “the voice”. The Voice is everything for the folk singer – a conduit for the words, the emotion, the thought process. And if, like me, you ever felt a record needed to be made of an artist’s voice, about her voice, so beautifully focused on, centred on, honed-in, on and in love with the voice, then this, is the record."
Hotpress - 9/10 review - May 2016
Career high on magnificent 3rd album…..for those that commit to the experience there’s a terrible beauty hovering inside these almost unbearably honest songs.
Irish Times - Album of the Week - April 2016
At a time when sameness threatens to drain the world of charm and surprise, Lisa O’Neill stands tall for difference, as an outlier with a mission to frame the world as she sees it and to perform it accordingly. Her voice is her own. No small achievement.
