Mossy Nolan - Singer Songwriter


The quality and execution of his self-titled debut album received lavish praise from well-respected corners of the music press,
and topped album of 2012 polls. The album is comprised of elegantly crafted songs and tunes both original and traditional played
on Bouzouki and Mandolin. Mossy is joined on the album by Colm McGowan, who's edgy style of guitar playing both acoustic and
electronic adds a dynamic characteristic throughout the record and compliments the material beautifully. He has appeared in session on "Radio Activity" and "The Small Hours" with Donal Dineen several times, and has played with established artists such as David Kitt as well as being part of the recording and touring band of one another one of Ireland's most exciting acts Lisa O’Neill.

Its not trad but its not folk either, a mix of rip-roaring delicately played instrumental compositions taking inspiration from all over
Europe, together with drones, electronic sound scapes and spectacular vocals. Mossy Nolan's music has its roots in the folk and
traditional realms for sure, but has the scope to reach a wider audience.

It is as a live performer Mossy really shows his true talent, captivating audiences with his older than his years voice and warm charming onstage persona.
