SON - Susan O'Neill

SUSAN O’NEILL

 

All the way from Co. Clare, Ireland, the prodigiously gifted Susan

O’Neill’s soulful & husky-voiced performances are truly something to

behold. With a striking attitude, guitar, harmonica, trumpet and a loop

pedal, Susan delivers a timeless and powerful blend of the old soul with

a new edge.

 

Described as a ‘ballsier Adele’ by Hotpress magazine, a Florence and the

Machine esq voice by Pure M and tipped as the traces of Janis Joplin

reincarnate. SON has, so early in her career, picked up many fans including

U2s Bono.

She covered U2s Exit song for Hot Press magazine 30-year celebration of

The Joshua Tree. Bono, on hearing her version emailed her to express his

appreciation of her stark rendition of Exit.

 

Her performances are literally mind-blowing. The amazing range of her gritty

vocal, a highly emotional charged approach make for a truly unforgettable

musical experience.

 

SON gained a BA in Music, majoring in recording techniques and minoring in

the art of performance.

Since then has travelled the world sharing experiences and stages creating

memories with some of her favourite artists. Including Sharon Shannon,

Mundy, Paul Brady, Lisa Hannigan, Mick Flannery, Madness to name a few.

In an attempt to sum up her passion, she says ‘Music is a feeling that we can

share, one that can dissolve and disperse our boundaries, I try to explore that,

in anyway I can, in its highest essence.’

"bluesy debut...showcasing her truly phenomenal husky voice, often

reminiscent of Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin or a ballsier Adele”

-The Daily Mail

"Not only is she a powerhouse vocalist, a talented musician, she also

knows how to get it down onto a track when it comes to the studio"
