About Eamon Ireland

Eamon Ireland is an incredible young man with amazing talent; his soft Irish accent comes through in his music and will surely tug at your heartstrings and leave you wanting for more. Eamon Ireland released his debut album in 2009 titled OUR LOVE IS GOLD, the album received much critical acclaim and one of the album tracks KATIE RIORDAN won the folk section of the UK songwriting competition in 2009.

Having crafted his gift of songwriting on the Islands of Ireland his debut folk album ''Our Love Is Gold'' is steeped in Irish tradition yet highly personal and original. The melodies and lyrics are alternately melancholy and light. The songs are complemented by sparse arrangements of guitar, piano and whistles. Eamon's voice is soothing and poignant much like the songs he writes.

Eamon also produced two charity albums to benefit Alzheimer's Sufferers both in the U.K and Ireland bringing together almost forty different artists, "FORGET ME NOT and MEMORY" which was launched in 2010.

Eamon has also written and published a few books, two that have come to my attention are; THE FAIRY’S CORNER and ISLAND STORIES, both of which are excellent reading. I understand that he has another book that we may see in the near future that is going through the final editing, so perhaps he’ll have another to add to his impressive accomplishments.

Sincerely hoping we will see some more music from Eamon...maybe in the New Year..
