My name is Róisín O, I’m a singer of songs born and raised in Dublin, Ireland. I’m not sure what genre my music is but I think it fits in somewhere between Folk, Rock and Pop. From a young age I was very influenced by Joni Mitchell, Fleetwood Mac and The Beatles but I also love Florence and The Machine, Wallis Bird, Radiohead and Laura Marling to name a few.
Last September I realised my debut album ‘The Secret Life of Blue’ and it’s been an amazing journey since then. I just got back from a five week tour of the states, (unfortunately the closest I got to Canada was Seattle) and am heading to Germany next month to support Ryan Sheridan on his tour there. I hope to get to gig in Canada very soon as my cousin grew up there and he’s the coolest person I know.
This video is the 4th one I’ve made for the the album. I was approached by a great Irish director Simon Eustace who wanted to have a go at making a video for this song. It’s a song that’s very close to me. I wrote it for a friend of mine who was suffering with depression and bipolar disorder. I wanted to let him know that I’d be there for him and things would get better soon.
I hope you enjoy it.
PS My friend’s doing great now :)
