Caoilian Sherlock released his debut EP 'The Faraway' under the moniker Saint Caoilian in 2017, on the back of a year of prestigious support shows with Roy Harper, Ryley Walker, Sean O'Hagan, and a tour around Ireland with Joan Shelley and Nathan Salsburg. Coinciding with this tour were shows at Body & Soul, Another Love Story, Sounds From A Safe Harbour, Quiet Lights and It Takes A Village Festivals. With the release new single 'Shades Of You' forthcoming this in September, and a full length album to follow - he has revoked his own sainthood and made the brave decision to re-enter the world as a mere mortal.
Playing guitar and writing songs since the age of fifteen, well worn through years in rock and roll bands his solo material takes considered, yet facetious ramble through the deepest of existential crisis. During live performances he is backed with an electric guitar, a super cool rock band, a sense of entitlement, a degree of casual sombreness, a joyous approach to playing music and an overly sentimental view of almost everything.
"His first solo single allows that raspy sweetness to dominate a song of bright laid-back blues folk" - Irish Times (Single Of The Week)
‘I’ll Be A Fool For You’ is a languid lilting track from a man who clearly has many strings to his bow." - Nialler9
