The Nation Mourns is the musical brain child of Irish songwriter Neil O’Shea. Growing up with a wide range of blues and rock influence, it was the haunting timbre of artists such as Tom Waits, Nick Drake, and Jackson C Frank that drew him to songwriting. This has lead him to lyrics of landscapes and leaving for home; while subtle, melancholic melodies draw you ever further into the music.
In 2021 The Nation Mourns was selected as a showcasing artist at Ireland Music Week 2021. He is currently based in Berlin, recording his debut album “Remember/Leaving” with producer and Universal Music Publishing artist Cameron James Laing. The album is set for release in mid 2022.
“Ireland has another huge prospect, plucky acoustic strings, rippling harmonies and a silky lead vocal. Introducing Neil O’Shea.”The Sound Sniffer
