Niall McNamee is an Irish singer-songwriter and actor known for his thoughtful and full-blooded songs and his charismatic live performances.

Describing himself as ‘a romantic football fan who writes songs’, Niall moved to London at seventeen years old working on building sites whilst growing a devoted fan base playing gigs in pubs and music venues across London. He began his acting career in London’s West End as Romeo in Romeo and Juliet before moving into film and TV and even having a major fight scene with Jackie Chan in The Foreigner.

After a sold-out headline tour of the UK and Ireland Niall was cast as the leading role in award-winning feature film Love Without Walls in which he plays a struggling songwriter trying to navigate London’s harsh streets. The soundtrack to the film is entirely Niall’s original songs. A new feature film in which Niall is romantic lead is due out late 2024/25.

Niall has supported the likes of Declan O’Rourke, David Keenan, Junior Brother, The Dubliners, The Wolfe Tones (summer 2024), Louis Dunford (summer 2024) and played Isle of Wight and Cambridge Folk festival. His music has been added to 3000 Spotify playlists, with over 100,000 listeners.

Niall’s debut album will be released on St Patrick’s Day, 17 March 2025.
