"The lilting melodies and commanding songwriting of Oscar Blue’s ‘Madrugada’ portray an artist far longer in the tooth than just 19... With a set of sweet lyrics delivered perfectly underneath the artist’s vocal delivery, both ‘Madrugada’ and Oscar Blue will have a lot of mass appeal." - Nialler9 Blog September 2018.
"Clare native Oscar Blue excels on his new single Silhouettes" - Golden Plec
"With heart-touching melodies and poetic lyrics, the single “Madrugada”, originated by 19 year old artist and songwriter, Oscar Blue is a must-have song for your 2018 playlist." - ILoveLimerick.ie
From the humble lakelands of Ireland comes 20 year old songwriter, Oscar Blue.
Influenced at a formative age by the passion and integrity of Irish artists such as Damien Dempsey and the modern, acoustic - pop sound of acts such as Vance Joy, Ben Howard, Paolo Nutini and Kodaline, Oscar Blue boasts songwriting ability far beyond his mere 20 years.
As a teenager Blue gained invaluable experience in the music industry gigging and building up an online following of thousands of youtube subscribers and twitter followers under a former stage name. By the age of 16 the teenager had played several festivals around the country and opened for some of Ireland's more established acts such as Hermitage Green, Ryan Sheridan, Hometown, The Original Rudeboys and Ryan O'Shaughnessy in venues such as The Academy, Cyprus Avenue and Dolan's Warehouse.
After taking a break from the music scene at the age of 17 to "mature both as a musician and a man" Oscar Blue has moved to the big smoke of Dublin City and is ready to take flight rapidly on his music career.
He released his debut single "Madrugada" in August which has since racked up over 40,000 streams and was accompanied by a music video shot in Barcelona.
However this first single now has been surpassed massively in popularity by his recent release "Silhouettes", which has been featured by Spotify in their "Mellow Morning" playlist and streamed over 170,000 times since its release in late October.
