Paula K O’Brien, aka Paula K, has been writing songs since she was an angst ridden teen wailing along to Courtney Love. Over time, and with the addition of children, marriage and a nursing carer, she quietened down and began to focus on the beauty of a story well told.

The seeds of an album took root and over time, became “Evangeline”. Named after an old poem by Henry Wadsworth  Longfellow, “Evangeline” tells the story of a woman following her heart, which is what this album represents to Paula (the title track on the album tells the story of the poem).

Supported by some of west Cork’s  finest musicians, Paula’s voice soars through her songs with a definite country edge, telling stories of monsters under beds, a devil with a heart of gold, beauty, love and loss. The only cover in the album is a song written by Nick Harper called “The Kilty Stone “, and which is very close to her heart.

Paula will launch her album in DeBarras Folkclub Clonakilty on Sunday, October 18th with support from the fantastic Lonely and The Moose.
