A highlight of Ramsbottom Festival 2012, Marc O’Reilly‘s sound is inspired folk ‘n’ blues with African percussive rhythms. As a live performer he already has a spellbinding reputation, as a songwriter he stands out as unique and moving talent and as a voice he is both urgent and persuasive in the same breath.

“With folk and blues influences, the Irish singer songwriter stands out from the genre, easily the feral twin of Ben Howard, raised by wolves, and with all the dare in his approach to songwriting and delivery for the pair of them.” – STV

“Far more exotic than your standard finger picker” – Proper Music UK

Marc’s eagerly awaited second album, Human Herdings is released on 28 March.
