Dublin born singer/songwriter Colin O’Shea burst onto the scene with his fresh and eclectic bag of cleverly written indie pop sounds. His rockin’ Bruce Springteen-esque debut single Booze 'n' Hangovers was released on October 6th 2017 to widespread furore, ahead of his critically acclaimed debut album Scars and Tones on November 3rd 2017.
He began recording his upcoming debut album Scars and Tones in September 2015, soon after a chance meeting with the talented engineer/producer/musician David Prendergast (Overhead the Albatross, Kodaline), which sparked an intriguing collaboration that continued for over twenty-two sporadic months!
“The debut album from Irish singer/songwriter Colin O’Shea, ‘Scars and Tones’, is bold and eclectic, fusing elements of everything from U2, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds to even Bruce Springsteen.”

“an eclectic and mercurial talent capable of working within a number of styles and genres.....He’s at his best when constructing tension-filled romantic ballads such as, ‘The Stars’, a real highlight, and the string-drenched ‘My Angel’. The title track is almost Dylanesque, with a backbeat recalling U2’s ‘With Or Without You’.”

“This outstanding debut perfectly showcases the promise of the massively diverse singer songwriter.”
