Dublin singer/songwriter, Colin O’Shea returned to the scene in 2022 with a fresh bag of exciting tunes and the first out of the traps was his single ‘Hollywood On Fire’ released 30th Sept 2022. This 80’s feel electro pop tune, received “Track of the Day” from the prestigious Hot Press Magazine. Soon followed by four further singles from the songsmith, each demonstrating Colin’s progressive musical development since his debut album.

O’Shea released his highly anticipated sophomore album titled “Bright Yellow Shiny Gold” on July 7th to widespread praise. Described as an “Impressive sophomore effort from rising artist”, with O’Shea having an “expressive, Bono-in-need-of-Benylin voice” by Hot Press and a terrific album ranking of 8/10.

Classically trained pianist and guitarist Colin O’Shea launched his debut single ‘Booze n’ Hangovers’ back in 2017, which was then followed by his critically acclaimed debut album ‘Scars and Tones’. The Ballyfermot Rock School graduate received high praise and flattering comparisons to Tom Waits, Bruce Springsteen, Nick Cave, Bob Dylan, Randy Newman and U2.

O’Shea went on to make his festival debut during summer 2018 opening the famed Castlepalooza boutique Irish festival. Having been in the studio since 2019 working on his new album offering, he’s delighted to be back with a fresh new bag of exciting songs that will surely set O’Shea up as one of the Irish artists to watch in 2023 and beyond.


“Impressive sophomore effort from rising artist”

— Jackie Hayden, Hot Press 


“The Dublin-based musician’s latest release is something unexpected. Still fronting unique raspy vocals, the tune is much lighter and dancier than other work by O’Shea. A perfect re-emergence onto the scene, it’s clear the musician’s talent wasn’t lost over his hiatus”

– Molly Cantwell, Hot Press


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