Lisa O’Neill

Instruments: Singer

Lisa O’Neill started writing songs at an early age in her native Ballyhaise, Co. Cavan. She moved to Dublin to study music and was welcomed into the folk and traditional scene where her singular voice, witty lyrics and observations on modern Irish life set her apart as a unique talent. Heard A Long Gone Song is her fourth album and a radiant document of an artist who feels more sure of her place in the world than ever before, while still retaining a sense of frailty, something she has been creating a dialogue around since her 2009 debut Has an Album, to 2013’s Same Cloth, and 2016’s Pothole in the Sky.
