Echo Northstar is an Irish artist, songwriter and producer from a coastal village in southeast Ireland now living/working, making music and art, in southeast London.
Echo Northstar was imagined out of Paddy Hennessy’s head and heart. A fresh start made way for debut single ‘someone else’ in July 2022 & ‘silent fears’ followed in November 2022.
“‘silent fears’ is letting go of what you hold the closest. The track has roots in 80s gothic aesthetics, branching forward to ethereal unknowns for new ideas and sounds”- Echo Northstar.
Echo Northstar’s songs have worked hard for him resulting in:
Hot for 2023 Irish Acts - “Bringing you the best up-and-coming homegrown artists to look out for the next 12 months…the audio/visual artist is due to release his debut solo EP in the coming months, titled ‘things I wish I could say” - Hot Press Feb 2023

“the Irish via South-London artist has released a handful of cavernous singles so far, ‘someone else’ is a bittersweet ode to what-ifs, and the hooks on ‘silent fears’ will marinate your brain for days on end” March 2023.
