About Shane


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 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.

As a performing artist, Shane plays solo and also with his band and new musical project ‘The Host’.  The band consists of an eclectic group of musicians from Ireland, Austria and England and together they bring a beautiful element to old and new original songs. Add to that mix an exciting and contemporary Irish Appalachian folk roots feel, caressed with that European twist and you’ll begin to get the idea. It’s live however where you’ll taste the full flavour.

With three albums to his name, countless tours under his and their belt, Shane is brand ambassador for Fusion Bags, Shadow Guitars, Elixir Strings and most recently Logjam Stompboxes.  With work already started in earnest on a new record with The Host, Shane is also working on a double Irish album which he’ll be releasing sometime soon.

  • 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!

    The songs are endlessly slick and tastefully assembled

    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
