London-based singer/songwriter Shaun O’Reilly blurs the lines between the melancholic mellowness of Elliott Smith, and the blues bark of Captain Beefheart.
His fondness of folk led him away from a metal band and into a solo career, with recent shows seeing him pull crowds across Holland and France. His single, ‘Witches’, was featured in legendary Americana publication No Depression, while Words For Music branded him “a people’s poet with the language of song running through his veins.
His debut album, ‘It’s a Vulgar Road We Take,’ was released on 22nd February 2019, courtesy of label Us Is The New Them. He was rewarded with his hard work on the BBC airwaves, with an in-depth interview and track premiere of ‘Took To Drinking’. The legendary DJ Dean Jackson went on record as saying the LP “made him want to play it on repeat”.
