Another New  Release ("After All") from Ayrfield resident and Ayrwaves supporter, Colin O'Shea

Following on from the September release of single ‘Hollywood On fire’, which received ‘Track of the Day’ from Hot Press magazine, and the October release of ‘Amazing’, Dublin songsmith Colin drops his 3rd single of 2022 and brings another wonderful accompanied music video with it.

Classically trained pianist and guitarist Colin O’Shea launched his debut single ‘Booze n’ Hangovers’ back in 2017, which was then followed by his critically acclaimed debut album ‘Scars and Tones’. The Ballyfermot Rock School graduate received high praise and flattering comparisons to Tom Waits, Bruce Springsteen, Nick Cave, Bob Dylan and U2. O’Shea went on to make his festival debut during summer 2018 opening the famed Castlepalooza boutique Irish festival.
