Multi-instrumentalist, and award-winning Irish songwriter Susan O’Neill releases her first EP ‘Now You See It’ today.
Recorded between Los Angeles, Maine, Co. Clare and Wexford Ireland during the spring of this year, the EP see’s Susan working once again with Tony Buchen (the producer of ‘In The Game’ the 2021 collaboration record with Mick Flannery), Sam Kassirer (Josh Ritter, Lake Street Dive) and her fellow bandmates, brothers Cillian and Lorcan Byrne.
‘Now You See It’, a startlingly beautiful collection of songs that showcase Susan’s inimitable vocals, intuitive musicianship and ever-expanding songwriting. Previously released tracks including the EP’s namesake, ‘Now You See it’ and ‘Truth Can Be Kind’ which see Susan reunite with Mick Flannery, both currently sit on the Radio 1 airplay charts at No. 1 and No. 3 and have received generous playlisting across all platforms.
‘In The Game’, the 2021 duet album with Mick Flannery, saw Susan receive nominations for the Choice Music Prize and the RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Awards’ Album of the Year, Female Folk Artist of the Year, and take home the Best Original Folk Track award for the collaborative song ‘Chain Reaction’. Susan was also shortlisted for the ‘Vanda and Young’ Award for her song ‘These Are the Days’. The collaboration album ended up being the biggest selling Irish independent record of 2021.
Susan’s recently finished a two-month tour, which saw her performing on the mainstages of beautiful Canadian festivals, debut shows in Los Angeles, headline shows in New York City, opening for Valerie June in the UK and Phoebe Bridgers in Scotland, before closing down August on the mainstage of Tønder Festival in Denmark.
