Róisín O’s debut single ‘Here We Go’ taken from the album, is available for download now and is an enticing taster for fans ahead of the debut studio album release on 3ú Records. Róisín O and her band have been crafting this album for the last year and are currently in producer David Odlum’s studio in France putting the finishing touches to the much anticipated recording. Performing and writing since she left school, Róisín O added musicians Alan Tully (guitars and vocals), Brian Murphy (bass and vocals) and Ruth O’Mahony Brady (keys and vocals) to her act, and together they have honed the Róisín O acoustic-rock sound.
“‘Here We Go’, the ballsy lead single from her forthcoming debut album. With Grammy-winning producer Dave Odlum pressing all the important buttons, Ms. O has come up with a stirring, confident piece of folk pop that instantly brings to mind the event which inspired it – none other than our very own Electric Picnic.’ Hot Press
Róisín O can boast support slots with The Coronas, Imelda May, Mary Black, Brad Paisley and Robert Cray on many of Ireland’s biggest stages, and was invited to perform live on the Pat Kenny Show on RTE 1 and Ireland AM on TV3 among others. Róisín O has also recorded with Paul Brady and Mary Black and her song ‘Drifting’ was chosen for the latest ‘Woman’s Heart Now’ compilation, alongside Lisa Hannigan, Wallis Bird, Cathy Davey and many more; still her powerful vocals were not overshadowed in the company of these excellent, established female singers.
