From the humble banks of Lough Derg comes East Clare native Oscar Blue, the 19 year old songwriter soon to break onto the Irish music scene.
Influenced at a formative age by the passion and integrity of Irish artists such as Damien Dempsey and the modern, acoustic - pop sound of acts such as Vance Joy, Ben Howard, Paolo Nutini and Kodaline, Oscar Blue boasts songwriting ability far beyond his mere 19 years.
As a teenager Blue gained invaluable experience in the music industry gigging and building up an online following of thousands of youtube subscribers and twitter followers under a former stage name. By the age of 16 the teenager had played several festivals around the country and opened for some of Ireland's more established acts such as Hermitage Green, Ryan Sheridan, Hometown, The Original Rudeboys and Ryan O'Shaughnessy in venues such as The Academy, Cyprus Avenue and Dolan's Warehouse.
Now after taking a break from the music scene over the last two years to "mature both as a musician and a man" Oscar Blue has moved to the big smoke of Dublin City and is ready to take flight on his music career. Currently working with producer Ryan O'Shaughnessy, the finishing touches are being applied to his debut releases at Bayview Records and an exciting journey is set to be embarked upon in 2018.
