Lisa O'Neill

It’s been a remarkable few years for Irish songwriter Lisa O’Neill, with her acclaimed recent album All of This Is Chance ranking highly on many critics’ 2023 Albums of The Year Lists.

Amongst the wealth of praise, Gideon Coe at BBC 6 Music picked it as his Album Of The Year, and it was No. 3 in Mojo Magazine’s Folk Albums Of The Year and No.24 in their main Albums Of The Year List. Bob Boilen at NPR deemed it his No.3 Album of The Year, it was one of Songlines’ Top 10 Albums Of The Year, Uncut Magazine’s No.17 Album Of The Year and at No. 33 with The Quietus.

On top of all that, actors Margot Robbie and Cillian Murphy both spoke of their love of her music in a radio interview. May 2023 saw Lisa make a memorable appearance on Later with Jools Holland, and Lisa began 2024 on tour in Australia and New Zealand. This year also sees her take on the prestigious role of a Fellow of The Seamus Heaney Centre in Belfast.

A raconteur in the truest sense of the word, O’Neill is a five time BBC Folk Award nominee.  Her previous album Heard a Long Gone Song was named The Guardian’s 2019 Folk Album of the Year, and her adaptation of Bob Dylan’s All the Tired Horses soundtracked the final scene of epic TV drama Peaky Blinders.

All of This Is Chance featured orchestral masterpieces including the ambitious and cinematic Old Note, and the title track was inspired by the Monaghan writer Patrick Kavanagh's epic poem, The Great Hunger. Stirring contemplations on nature, birds, berries, bees, and blood ring out over a clacking banjo throughout the album, dusting and devastating all those in its wake.
