Cathal O’ Reilly

Hip Hop // Clonmel, Tipperary

Cathal O’ Reilly hailing from Clonmel, Tipperary, started his writing career as an author writing a book on his experiences with depression and ultimately becoming a prominent voice in the mental health space in Ireland.

His love for music however started from a young age after seeing Kanye West live at Vicar Street at a small show in 2006 which changed everything. Feeling like he must become the full version of his true self, his direction changed in 2019 - writing raps due to his Hip Hop influences and love for the genre and culture.

He released his debut EP 'Potential' in 2019 which was well received by Irish DJ's and tastemakers alike including Red FM, Dublin City FM, Spin Southwest, KCLR 96FM and WLR FM particularly with the single ‘Posting’.

Cathal performed at the Limerick Summer Festival in 2022 where he opened the boutique Hip Hop festival at Limerick Racecourse in Ireland. The set was unique, fierce and authentic where he found his voice on stage, hoping to perform live, more in the future.

Releasing his second EP in 2023, 'The Last Rapper', Cathal O'Reilly returns with an ode to real music, exploring political and revolutionary themes as well as lifting the veil between the artist and the listener, hoping to provoke and inspire hope within the artistic craft and inspire audiences.

Cathals new single ‘To My Soul’ will be released Friday March 1st on all streaming platforms as the first single of his new album ‘The Magician’ which releases in April. His hopes are to perform live more frequently in 2024.
