In 2019 Donal released his debut single, ‘Another Love Song’, which has gained popularity with audiences in the UK, Ireland, Australia, Germany and the United States as well as being played on local radio stations such as Radio Kerry and Red FM. More recently, Donal released his second single, ‘Politics of the Heart’, in 2021.

“His musical frame of reference is diverse, if he can bring it all together, the world will surely swoon” – Hot Press

He was also included in Hot Press’ ‘Hot for 2022’ list and was in their January edition.

Donal’s brand new single ‘No Regrets’ showcases a new vibrant, up-beat side to his music and is the first exhibition of fresh collaborations with a full band in recording.

Coming off the back of supporting Wild Youth and Róisín O in 2022, this new track explores a more rhythmic and dance inspired style, taking influence from songs like ‘One Dance’ by Drake, ‘Woman’ by Doja Cat and ‘No Judgement’ by Niall Horan.

‘No Regrets’ is a taste of the new avenues Donal is taking his music down in 2023 and the beginning of a new chapter of his career.
