"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.
From the humble banks of Lough Derg comes East Clare native Oscar Blue, the 19 year old songwriter soon to break onto the Irish music scene.
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 19 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.
Now after taking a break from the music scene over the last two years 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 on his music career.
He has recently released his first single “Madrugada” which is available to stream everywhere. Madrugada was produced by Ryan O’Shaughnessy at Bayview Studios and can be found at this link. https://open.spotify.com/track/6q14aAdE2H5hJttUCXYkHY?si=_IOEbMnAS2ObhloKx7SlhA
