Colin O’Shea’s journey from knowing that music was the path he wanted to take to releasing his debut album has been one of determination and inspiration. From an early age Colin realised his true passion lay with making music and having developed a real flair for writing he set his sights on honing his instrumental skills, which resulted in the Dubliner becoming a classically trained pianist and accomplished guitarist. A graduate of the infamous Ballyfermot Rock School, the northside Dubliner songwriter also holds a BA in Psychology, an interesting mix of accomplishments when translating your life experiences into song.

O’Shea’s debut album has received acclaim and accolades from industry press with comparisons to Bruce Springsteen, Nick Cave, Bob Dylan and U2. Produced by David Prendergast (Kodaline, Shane McGowan, The Riptide Movement, Kila), Scars and Tones is a collection of cleverly written eclectic songs influenced by heartbreak, loss, bliss and even being a victim of a kidnapping in South America, an experience that inspired the stunning ballad ‘My Angel’.

Colin is currently in the studio recording his sophomore album, with David Prendergast again taking production duties. Colin will be debuting some of his new highly anticipated material on the night.
