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 today through referencing tales from the past with beauty, honesty and defiance.

Lisa’s last release on the Rough Trade imprint River Lea, Heard A Long Gone Song has garnered huge acclaim both at home and abroad. It was Choice Nominated has a  5/5 star review from the Guardian on release and a coveted Best Folk Album of 2019 from the same publication. She was 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. Late last year Lisa signed a new album deal with Rough Trade and is currently working on new material for that album due out later in 2022. Blackbird, a song from the last album has also recently been featured in Peaky Blinders winning Lisa lots of new fans.
