It’s been an incredible year for Lisa O’Neill. With a new album Same Cloth or Not she won over fans and critics alike. Her rich aged folk voice, melancholic melodies and brilliant lyrical wit marked her a genuinely unique Irish artist.
Her live shows became much talked about affairs with the audience welling up one moment, and in stitches the next.
The new album was recorded in a beautiful cottage rented in Wicklow in the winter months with David Kitt producing and Karl Oldum engineering and includes her regular band-mates Stina Sandstrom (vocals) and Mossy Nolan (bouzouki).
“It’s possible she’s the most important artist out of Ireland for decades.” – The Herald
“One of the most outstanding Irish albums of the year.”- The Irish Times
Having toured Ireland and mainland Europe this year with Glen Hansard, supported David Gray on his Irish tour and James Yorkston on his UK tour it’s time Lisa took on her own shows with a return to Whelan’s where she played a sold-out show to launch the album back in October.
