Niall Thomas is a Dublin based Musician and Songwriter threading the inuences of Folk and Americana into his work. Renowned for his intricate guitar playing and melliuous vocals his songs reveal a songwriter that can lyrically regale a story or hit straight to the heart of the matter whilst reeling in the listener through the sonic overtones of a nylon or steel string bone nut and saddle 6 string. His second studio album ‘Night Sky Blue’ was released in April 2018 receiving a glowing ★★★★ Review from The Irish Times with comparisons being drawn to the late great John Martyn and Nick Drake. Niall is currently finishing his third studio album and will be sharing some of his new material at this intimate show in De Barras, Clonakilty, West Cork.
“Night Sky Blue is a heart-warming selection of tender songs about daily life, human resilience and love and loss…….very pleasing shades of Nick Drake and John Martyn…. a moving paean to Dublin’s fair city, and life itself. ★★★★ TheIrishTimes
“The songs demonstrate that is a man who has a keen eye on the human condition…as these are pieces of work displaying real depth and feeling……like many proper albums as opposed to collections of songs, this is one that takes a time to get to know and grows on the listener after a few plays. Very much in the style of Nick Drake, this will definitely be one for you if that is your thing. ★★★★ Americana UK
“With an engaging vocal style, his songs are in the main melancholic and moving, with more shade than light; a fine sounding record” Hotpress
“haunting ruminations on fate and possibility…. a cut above” Americana UK
“vocals that have you hanging on every word…fantastic musicianship” Goldenplec
