Die Irin Lisa O’Neill ist in Ballyhaise, County Cavan, aufgewachsen und lebt heute in Dublin. Heard A Long Gone Song ist eine Sammlung von traditionellen Stoffen und eigenem Material. Die Künstlerin gestaltete die klassischen Lieder auf ihre gänzlich eigene, unverwechselbare Art; verleiht ihnen ihren ganz persönlichen Touch. Zu Beginn des Jahres 2018 performte Lisa O’Neill zusammen mit Nick Cave, Bono, Sinead O’Connor bei Shane McGowans 60. Geburtstagsfeier in Dublins National Concert Hall. Sie gehört zu den großen Namen der irischen Folk-Szene und ist für einen Irish Folk Award in der Kategorie Bester Folk Interpret nominiert.


Heard A Long Gone Song, her first album for Rough Trade imprint River Lea is a collection of traditional material interspersed with her own. The sense of ownership Lisa imbues in these old songs, coupled with the immutability of her chosen subjects makes it hard to tell which is which. The album begins with an entirely unaccompanied rendition of The Galway Shawl, first collected in 1936 but made famous by Alan Lomax’s 1956 recording of the great Margaret Barry. Recorded in a rural studio near the Loire Valley, Heard A Long Gone Song was produced by David Odlum and Lisa O’Neill. It follows her much-lauded, self-released 2016 album Pothole In The Sky with a record that is personally political, uniquely beautiful, heartfelt and witty. And perhaps as timeless as the passed down songs Lisa sings as if they were hers.
