After completing a medical degree in pursuit of the ‘ideal’ life Ian (O’SULLIVAN) turned his back on the safe road, forming a band in a town in the south of Hungary. When their first single hit heavy rotation in the country, the festivals followed and over the last 6 years brought invitations for the band to Reeperbahn (Germany), Sziget (Hungary), Exit (Serbia), Zandari (South Korea) and Wild Mint (Russia) festivals culminating with a concert on the border of North and South Korea – the ‘Peace Train Festival’, with the likes of John Cale (Velvet Underground), Ice Age and Last Train. This year Ian launched his solo project O’SULLIVAN with two aims, to play music from the heart and to finally play a solo concert in the Harbour Bar.
His debut single 'Little Bird', released October 2020, quickly rose to the top of the Hungarian alternative music playlists on Spotify, spending two weeks as the playlist coverhead.
"Whether you're drawn to melancholy or to happiness, this song has got you covered. The lyrics sing to bittersweet love while the melody twirls to provide a head-bopping good time." Jami Selikow (Indie Shuffle)
