through his lyrics has been honed over almost two decades of
writing and performing original material.
It is perhaps his most recent offering 'Songs Of Love So Cruel'
that deserves most attention. Co-produced and mixed by acclaimed
engineer Colin Elliot (Richard Hawley), 'Songs Of Love So Cruel' has
been featured on RTE Radio 1, Today FM and Newstalk as well as
enjoying extensive airplay in the UK on BBC Radio 2.
Five songs from Ultan’s latest offering were also featured alongside
a score he co-composed with guitarist Eoin McCann in the award
winning film 'Songs For Amy' which played at IMC cinemas nationwide
in May 2015. Songs For Amy screened at the Boston Film Festival as
well as The Newport Film Festival where it took home the Just Award.
Having shared the stage with the likes of Jackson Browne, Shelby Lynn,
John Grant, Eddi Reader, Patty Griffin and Richard Hawley, Ultan Conlon
has also performed duets with Glen Hansard and John Martyn who went
on to record one of Ultan’s early songs 'Really Gone' in 2005.
Ultan Conlon has just finished mixing his new record 'Last Days of The
Night Owl' in Nashville Tennessee, with Grammy award winning engineer
Collin Dupuis (The Black Keys, Lana Del Ray, Ray LaMontagne, Dr John).
