Product description

Product Description

Co. Cavan-born singer Lisa O'Neill's 'Choice Music Award nominated' second album "Same Cloth or Not" is an assured piece of work.  Her approach is unrushed, naturalistic, straight-talking.  She's like a musical version of Flannery O'Connor. The voice is sprite-like, but with an old soul singing….the kind of voice that might sit as easily on a Carter Family recording as it would an avant-folk crank artefact. It's a tender and expressive instrument, but possesses a midlands Irish flintiness. More to the point, it suits the subject matter and songs.

'England Has My Man' is the kind of emigrant's lament for love lost that has been sung for centuries. Then there's 'Apiana', the story of a piano lost to a flood in Harold's Cross in Dublin, a flood so severe there was nothing left in the house but Peggy Seeger's letter of endorsement for O'Neill's first album. And there's a toughness and a rawness to songs like 'Come Sit Sing'. These songs could have been written a hundred years ago, built to withstand age and wear.

O'Neill grew up in Ballyhaise in the middle of Ireland. 'No Train To Cavan' describes the age-old predicament of the dreamer becalmed in rural terrain. A line like 'There's no train where I come from' speaks volumes in its simplicity.

Brilliant talent. If the world was fair LIsa would already be a major star.

Pure Class. This album will not dissappoint; in the words of Kylie "can't get you outta my mind". I would wonder about the opening track, not about it's theme or delivery but in terms of first impressions. Ahhh....I'm not in the mood for that folkie song, so if it was my choice I would have opened with another. Track 5 maybe or even the title track (10, I think). It's on a continous loop in my car and so I don't know the titles, just the number of the track....but I sure can feel the emotion and sentiment. I will go and see this girl perform too.

A very unique voice, a very unique singing style and this would lead on the first hearing to question the quality!
It has to be given the five plays or more to hear the music, the voice and lyrics to see that this all adds up to being worthwhile!
If a quirky voice turns you off then this is not for you but if like me, going outside the mainstream means getting to hear material that makes you smile or think or even appreciate the quality!
The four stars indicates that I have got to the fifth complete hearing and I am very chosey about awarding stars this means that this is worth giving a chance!
