Since the independent release of her debut album in 2015, Australian singer-songwriter, Ayleen O’Hanlon, has been steadily building a name as a captivating live performer with a distinctive voice that will rope you in and pull you under.
Carried by skilled picking on the guitar and banjo, and with a sound inspired from folk, country and blues traditions, O’Hanlon's honest songwriting details small town stories, downtrodden hearts, and dusty characters.
O’Hanlon emerged with the album ‘Blend and Spill’ displaying a confidence and candour rarely seen on an alt-folk country debut. She then took Port Fairy Folk Festival by storm in 2016 with a full band, and backed it up with appearances at several festivals around the country.
At the same time, O'Hanlon is an innovative event producer and invested in creating a sense of community through her work. In 2015-16 she curated, directed and performed in a major songwriting and history performance series, titled ‘Goin' Back’ for the Darebin Music Feast and Brunswick Music Festival.
More recently, O'Hanlon joined Mick Thomas' Roving Commission as chief banjo-wielder, guitarist and backing singer, going on to impress audiences all around Australia with the power and emotion of her performance both as a solo artist and as an accompanist in the band.
Currently, O'Hanlon is in the writing and recording phase for her next album, while also preparing to record with Mick Thomas' Roving Commission in winter of 2018. <br>
