About Artist

Orna Lyons is singer/songwriter from North Dublin, who has recently established herself in the music industry. At just 20 years of age, she has spent her years growing up surrounded by music and developed the ability to sing at a very young age. Her talent refused to stop there, not only has she the skill required to play many instruments including the guitar and the fiddle, her song-writing which began at 10 has evoked onto a whole new level. To expand her singing and songwriting skills, Orna practiced obsessively and to date has played venues such as Eamon Doran’s, The Bleeding Horse, The Slaughtered Lamb, Bewley’s on Grafton Street, Music Maker and PSLC live-room to name but a few. She has also appeared on the likes of Balcony TV and played at nights such as Zodiac Sessions. Setting up a MySpace was her way of introducing her music to the world, the response and feedback has been exceptional with some comparing her to the likes of Kate Bush and Joni Mitchell. Her song writing has impressed many and she even appeared in the final of the well-known song writing contest “Under the Sun” held by Music Maker Dublin in 2009. With her name on everyone’s tongues it wasn’t a surprise when Orna was shortlisted for “Most Promising New Artist for 2010” in the Meteor Music Awards. Recently, Orna was chosen as Hotpress Magazine’s ‘Pick of the Fortnight’ and her music has been aired around radio stations nationwide. In her music, you will find elements of folk, acoustic and soul but with a slightly alternative edge which comes from inspiration and musical tastes such as Arctic Monkeys, The Strokes and Coldplay. Similar to Dolores O Riordan, you never forget her Irish background as it shines through in her emotion-filled vocals which send shivers throughout.
