About Me


Shane Ó Fearghail is an Irish Singer-songwriter from Dublin, now based in Vienna. His musical style fits neatly into the Irish Indie Folk box. Likened to REM, Crowded House, Rufus Wainright III and Ron Sexsmith, it is easy to see where his songwriting loyalties lie. Irish music however, is his first love.

On stage Shane Ó Fearghail is one of the best live performers out there. Energetic, engaging and unpretentious with a genuine depth and craft to his songwriting that is never far from his Irish Folk roots in it’s storytelling and pathos.

Shane plays solo or with his band The Host – the new dynamic indie folk outfit. Go to Tour to find out about dates for 2018.

Quotes from the Press

It's all about the music

  • Jackie Hayden, Hot Press
    Just listening to the new Shane Ó Fearghail album. Only one way to describe it, totally brilliant form start to finish. Congrats. I hope it does as well as it deserves
  • Lauren Murphy, The Irish Times
    This Dubliner makes the sort of music that you can imagine on heavy rotation on radio stations in Germany, Austria & Switzerland!
  • Eamon De Paor, The Metro
    The songs are endlessly slick and tastefully assembled
  • DJ Sinister Pete, Phantom FM
    Hard to pigeon hole… One minute you’re hearing the heartfelt warblings of the singer songwriter, next they’re rocking it out with the best of them and that’s what makes this Dubliner stand out
