From Ballinasloe in Co. Galway, Ireland, songwriter Emma O’Reilly is often compared to acts like Kate Bush, Aldous Harding, Maggie Rogers and Owen Pallett for her imaginative yet refined sound.
Dramatic and always evocative, Emma’s music is a fusion of Alternative rock, pop and folk informed by her classical training at the piano.
Emma's journey as an artist was an unusual one, with her cutting her teeth between the classical and DIY music scenes in Dublin. As a result, you can hear her in a whole host of places on Spotify - backing up Stu Daly or LaGracia, as a member of Irish Youth Chamber Choir or Discovery Gospel Choir. Offline she's worked in live settings with artists like Loah, Kevin Herm Connolly, Suzanne Savage, Darken the Distance, and members of Bitch Falcon.
Emma's latest EP FRACTURES has taken her all around Ireland, the UK, and most recently to New York and Toronto. The EP was recorded by mixing live and multi-track processes in Arad Studios in Dublin, Ireland with Les Keye (Squarehead, Kevin "Herm" Connolly, My Sweet Beloved). The EP explores a sound closer to her live shows, and digs into her alternative rock influences. The result is alternately introspective and ferocious, vulnerable and dramatic, intricate and engaging.
