Seánie started songwriting and live performing in his early teens, performing with friends at home in Mullinahone and with Tipperary band We Looked Like Giants. Throughout these years, he continued to cultivate his playing technique, resulting in a musician who is able to captivate and draw in the listener on every song with interesting and engaging melodies on guitar, bouzouki, or whatever he happens to have to hand.
His debut EP That Hollow Moon dropped in December of last year. On his EP, he says “Written and self-recorded/produced in a renovated cowshed in the Tipperary countryside, this EP came to life after a difficult few months. Growing anxiety and fear had crept into my every being and put my life on the back foot. All that I was feeling went into my music. I spent the winter months recording with the fire keeping me warm, coming up for air a few times a day. All of the songs were written and recorded during this time. I had begun by recording old songs but they didn’t feel as relevant to me at the time, so I turned my energy into writing new ones.”
“South Tipperary folk singer-songwriter Seánie Bermingham dropped into my inbox with ‘Call the Coroner’ a beaut of a song from an upcoming EP that has a quiet grace to it.” – Nialler9
“Very dappled Autumnal sunlight a la Simon & Garfunkel and Sufjan at his most beatific.” – Alan Corr, RTE
