Darragh O'Dea

Alternative // Tuam, Galway

Irish songwriter Darragh O’Dea is known for his wistful storytelling. By using historical imagery to tell present-day stories, he creates nostalgic nuggets of joy and despair. His music conveys the moods and elements of his surroundings, delivered in an honest and alluring manner. Darragh hails from Tuam Co Galway and weaves a tapestry of the everyday in sonic threads on his new music.

”Tilly & The Postmaster", the debut album by Darragh O'Dea gets it's release on October 29th 2021 and has been described as a love letter to Ireland – all it's madness and all it's beauty.

“Deliciously uncool in a heart on sleeve way” - Donal Scannell (Born Optimistic)

"Great imagery and poetry" - Ruth Smith (Simply Folk, RTE Radio 1)
