NI Music Prize BEST LIVE ACT Winners 2019

“An independent force, a defiant artist” CLASH Magazine

Sister Ghost, is the project of Shannon Delores O’Neill; having a background playing in bands from the age of 12. In late 2013, she saw an opportunity to do things her way for the first time. She began writing and demoing – singing and playing everything herself – before enlisting some friends to bring Sister Ghost to completion.

Playing noisy, spectral art-rock with a pop heart, O’Neill marshals a diverse set of influences in a singular way – from Seattle legends The Gits and her guitar hero, Sonic Youth‘s Lee Ranaldo, to Kate Bush and L7.

Having also set up Girls Rock School NI in 2016, O’Neill has been recognised for mentoring and encouraging other female-identified musicians to perform in the Northern Irish scene.

Garnering high profile support slots with Shellac, Pussy Riot and Le Butcherettes, and being featured as a Next Wave artist on the BBC Radio 1 Indie Show, the band are currently working on the debut album, set for release in 2020. Equal parts emphatic and earworming, the new material is O’Neills most vital to date.

One of the most gifted songwriters to come out of the North in a long, long time” Stephen McCauley, BBC Radio Ulster

A blistering meld of Sonic Youth meets Sleater-Kinney and that’s something to be very excited about.
