0Stella’s alt-rock Irish fusion features traditional Irish fiddle and bodhrán (sometimes wrapped in thick distortion), catchy pop melodies, and politically charged lyrics with a touch of irony and rebellion. Singing in either English or Irish, 0Stella regularly engages the crowd to sing along in both languages – whether performing solo or with her 5-piece band. 0Stella’s unique sound deftly combines Canadian rock with Irish storytelling and folk music and draws comparisons to Paramore, Garbage, Lana Del Rey and The Frames. The zero-waste advocate (thus the zero in her name) is nothing if not committed – she is currently on a year-and-a-half-long cycling album tour across Canada and Europe in support of her upcoming album, Skyward, out Sept 2023 on Dead Doll Records.
Driven by her passion for sustainability, 0Stella’s name reflects her commitment to responsible touring. On Earth Day, April 20, 2022, with her bike, a tent, solar panel and carbon fibre guitar, she embarked on an awe-inspiring cycling tour from Victoria, BC, forging genuine connections with people after prolonged isolation. Covering an astonishing distance of over 5,400 kilometres, her expedition concluded on October 1st, 2022, in Halifax, NS, resonating deeply with fellow Canadians while advocating for environmental preservation.
Currently in Dublin, 0Stella prepares for the European leg of her 2023 Who Needs This cycling tour, having already cycled an impressive cumulative of 6,600 kilometers. Expect extraordinary performances with her signature alt-rock sound infused with Irish storytelling and folk influences.
0Stella’s stand out-single of 2022, Weightelss, soared to #5 on the Top Ten Indie Songs of 2022 on 91X FM in Belleville, ON alongside the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Juno winner, Aysanabee. Notably, her interpretation of Fisherman’s Blues by the Waterboys received public acclaim from the song’s legendary writer, Mike Scott, while her music has reached international audiences with features on WDIY (NPR Pennsylvania).
Introducing All Things Eve, a captivating German singer/songwriter who has found her musical haven in the city and streets of Dublin. With an enchanting blend of folk, pop and a touch of jazz, All Things Eve weaves a tapestry of melodic storytelling that resonates deeply with her audience.
