Niall McDowell

Alternative // Belfast, Antrim // he/they

Niall McDowell is a queer folk and alt-country singer/songwriter from Belfast, Country Antrim. Their music has been described as "somewhere between a choirboy and a cowboy" by BBC Radio 1 with Songs such as 'Brokeback' and 'It Was An Honour To Be Nominated' lauded for their whip-smart writing and vulnerable production. After a stint in Soft Gut Song-writing Camp curated by Ciaran Lavery, an array of sold-out live shows and their involvement in The Oh Yeah Centre in Belfast's 'Scratch My Progress' programme in 2022-23, their newest single 'I Have Given Up' is coming to streaming services on March 22nd, the first of a string of releases to come in 2023.
