" Cormac O Caoimh is a singer-songwriter and classical guitarist from Cork, Ireland. He is also a former member of ‘The Citadels’, who received critical acclaim on various releases over the last 10 years. His debut solo cd "Stark a Spark" was released in 2007 and received glowing reviews. For his new album "A New Season For Love" he re-united with ex-bandmates Art O Laoire and Eoghan Regan, who also were in The Citadels.
O Caoimh has picked up some well-known admirers along the way including Ron Sexsmith and Tom Robinson (BBC) and has supported fellow luminaries; Damien Rice (in the Paradiso, Amsterdam), Declan O Rourke, Josh Rouse, Mark Geary, Nick Kelly, Miles Hunt and Damien Dempsey to name but a few. He also ventured further afield playing headlining gigs and slots in Edinburgh, London, Amsterdam and New York. His solo live performances vary between fast and frenetic indie-pop acoustic guitar playing, slower tunes heavily influenced by his classical guitar playing background and jazz influenced folk music tunes.
An admirable songsmith, each track from his forthcoming album 'A New Season For Love' contains a catchiness and accessibility at their core that outweigh any stylistic definition. Though he may be likened to the hypnotic Nick Drake, or the inverse Elliot Smith; it is his slow and gradual soft low-key vocal delivery that inspires repeat listens. A New Season For Love is the new single and it is released March 16th. "
