Lisa O’Neill is rapidly emerging as one of the truest contemporary Irish folk voices – unashamedly true to her roots and with a voice so distinctive you might only fail to recognize it if Stevie Nicks ever relocated to Cavan to front a Luke Kelly tribute band. Lisa’s voice has a unique timelessness to it and is delivered with such convincing aplomb that it’s sometimes it’s hard to believe that it’s emerging from one so young. A captivating performer Lisa’s shows are filled with stories and banter delivered with a great wit throughout.
Lisa sings brilliantly swarthy folk songs full of humour and tenderness with a great Cavan twang. She has turned heads at the Ones to Watch festival and opening slots for Mick Flannery, John Grant and Richard Thompson to name a few. She was personally invited to open and perform onstage with David Gray on his recent Lost & Found tour.
Her independently released & rather wonderful debut album, functionally titled "Has an Album" was launched in August 2009 Lisa is currently working on new material for her eagerly anticipated second album.
