The Nation Mourns

Folk // Cork City, Cork

The Nation Mourns is the musical brain child of Irish songwriter Neil O’Shea. Growing up with a wide range of blues and rock influence, it was the haunting timbre of artists such as Tom Waits, Nick Drake, and Jackson C Frank that drew him to songwriting. This has lead him to lyrics of landscapes and leaving for home; while subtle, melancholic melodies draw you ever further into the music.
He is currently residing in Berlin, recording The Nation Mourns debut album at The Famous Gold Watch - AudioVisual Studios.
