Dublin//, County Clare
From the humble lake lands of Ireland comes the mindful songwriting of Oscar Blue.
Influenced at a formative age by the passion, integrity and spirit of Irish artists such as Luka Bloom and the modern, acoustic - pop sound of acts such as Vance Joy, Oscar Blue boasts songwriting ability far beyond his mere 20 years.
While Blue began writing music at the age of 13, he has only recently began to share his songs with a worldwide audience. Since his debut release in August 2018 Oscar Blue has been streamed over 800k times in over 70 countries, receiving hugely encouraging support from Spotify's editorial playlists.
He has graced the renowned Whelan’s venue for his sold-out debut headline show last January, and recently played a second Dublin date in The Sound House on March 30th. With a busy summer ahead, Blue is set to announce tour dates in the U.S and will play Indiependence Main Stage in Michelstown County Cork in August.
Having honed his craft in intimate venues such as Dolan’s Limerick, Cyprus Avenue Cork, and The Grand Social Dublin, Oscar Blue’s live shows are an oasis you never knew you wanted to find, blending sound and silence in a perfect symphony. Rich in experience, Blue has already supported acts such as The Academic, Cathy Davey and Ryan Sheridan, testament to his work ethic as an artist.
With an easy listening and sweet sound in both his recorded tracks and live shows, Oscar Blue's fan base looks set to grow exponentially. While proud of his previous releases the Clare born songwriter looks forward to releasing new work later this year, as he continues to walk a path of increasing maturity, mindfulness and broader horizons.
"The lilting melodies and commanding songwriting of Oscar Blue’s Madrugada portray an artist far longer in the tooth than just 19... With a set of sweet lyrics delivered perfectly underneath the artist’s vocal delivery...Oscar Blue will have a lot of mass appeal." - Nialler9
“Sitting in Melbourne, listening to Silhouettes. Loving the simplicity, the song and the arrangement. There is a lovely reminisce to 1990, when I heard Tracy Chapman’s Fast Car. Simplicity is deceptive. It can be so hard to achieve, and still sound unique. This is a lovely song, and it tells me that Oscar Blue has the good stuff. Best of luck to him.”
- Luka Bloom.
