A multi-instrumentalist and critically acclaimed performer Susan O’Neill is one of Ireland’s most celebrated emerging talents.
Following her last single at the end of 2020 ‘Almost’, Susan shares her latest offering ‘Give Me Good Reason’ a production made possible by the MISP Songwriting bursary set up by the Department of Culture.
Speaking about the song, Susan says:
“’Give Me Good Reason’ was a half-finished old track that I am very glad to share with you now. It was sitting dormant on a hard drive until I shared it with Mick Flannery who played piano and co-wrote some beautiful parts into the song to bring it to where it is now. Hope you enjoy it. Tony Buchen produced the track from Sydney, Australia.”
Susan has also been collaborating on a duet project with multi-platinum, award-winning artist, Mick Flannery. The pair released a duet, ‘Baby Talk‘, to rave reviews in 2020, and took home the award for ‘Best Original Song’ at the RTE Folk Awards. Susan and Mick will release a full-length duet album late summer 2021.
