Biography

Dublin-born Róisín O is one of the most promising new artists to emerge from the competitive Irish music scene in recent times. In a relatively short timespan she has shared both stage and studio with some of Ireland’s leading artists, showing an expressive voice full of warmth and depth, and proved that combining a unique songwriting style with a commitment to hard work is still the best way to progress.

Róisín O released her debut album 'The Secret Life of Blue' in September 2012, and went straight into the Irish Official Album charts at number 21. 'The Secret Life of Blue' was released by 3ú Records and recorded in the Studio Black Box in France with Grammy Award-winning producer David Odlum (The Frames, Gemma Hayes, Josh Ritter).

Róisín O recently returned from her 13 date US headline tour and has also been performing in Germany as support on Ryan Sheridan’s 17 date tour. Róisín is gathering lots of attraction from outside Ireland after performing on 'The President's Call' earlier this year. This was part of a special Saint Patrick's Day 2013 broadcast in Ireland from Áras an Uachtaráin, alongside other Irish performers such as Bono, Christy Moore, Glen Hansard, Imelda May, The Script, and Lisa Hannigan. The programme receiving ratings of over 900,000 viewers.
