A genuine, poetic folk singer, songwriter-guitarist, Eamon released his acclaimed second album “All Souls” in 2018 and supported the release touring with Sam Amidon (Nonsuch Records) and Glen Hansard (star of the films Once and The Swell Season and frontman in Irish band The Frames).
Eamon has appeared and collaborated with esteemed artists such as Bonnie Prince Billy, Anais Mitchell, Martin Hayes (The Gloaming) Jefferson Hamer, Bridget Kearney (Lake Street Dive) and his multi- instrumentalist-label mate, Benjamin Lazar Davis (Okkervil River / Cuddle Magic / Joan As Police Woman).
What they say... “Eamon O’Leary seduces the senses with songs that individually open from a distance and come rapidly closer, but collectively flow along like a gentle river current” ALBUM OF THE MONTH (Folk Radio UK)
“Eamon O’Leary is ‘one of the deepest musicians and songwriters out there - a secret weapon, an underground hero” (Sam Amidon)
“An album suffused by the sighs of darkness and the whispers of light, O’Leary has an Irish soul and an American heartbeat. Embrace him” (FATEA)
