Shane Ó Fearghail
Shane Ó Fearghail is singer and a songwriter from Dublin Ireland. As well as performing solo Shane is lead singer and songwriter with Irish band Caruso. A Storyboard Artist/Animator by trade Shane cut his teeth as a songwriter and a performer while traveling around the world working in animation studios. Shane has been head hunted by several record labels over the past ten years but wanting to develop as a writer and a performer decided to go his own road. With the release of Caruso's first album The Watcher & The Comet that position changed!
With a love for the Irish language, Shane's background is in Traditional Irish singing and songs, something he learned whilst singing at home with his family. Other influences have inevitably helped him chisel out his own original unique style. The Watcher & The Comet's release, produced by Herbie Macken (Neil Finn, Crowded House, Gavin Friday) introduced publishing in Germany which was followed by gigs in the States and Europe.
Performing live is where Shane truly shines. Whether it be with Caruso or performing solo, one thing is assured… a unique live experience and a great night in the true Irish sense! It feels like home. To date he has also played with and supported great acts from Sinead O'Connor, Glen Hansard, Ray LaMontagne, Damien Rice, Example, Amy McDonald, Lisa Hannigan, Damien Dempsey, The Mission and Jack L.
Having recently signed a record deal with Spectra Records in The States for the North American release of Caruso's next album 'Everything You Need Is Here', Shane is currently putting the final touches to his Solo Aoustic album which will be released in the States and Europe Summer 2014. Also involved in European songwriting collectives he continues to write songs and tour Europe and North America!
