Susan O’Neill & Andie in Concert at The Metropole Guesthouse
Having been compared to both Adele and Florence and the Machine by Pure M, SON (Susan O'Neill) from Ireland has, so early in her career, picked up many fans including U2's Bono.
She covered U2's Exit song for the Hot Press magazine 30-year celebration of The Joshua Tree and Bono, on hearing her version, emailed her personally 'To the dark-eyed Susan…I love the stark rendition of Exit….your fan Bono."
She has also supported Imelda May, Mundy, Alabama 3, Sharon Shannon, Fun Lovin Criminals, David Gray and Madness to name a few.
Her solo performances are literally mind-blowing. The amazing range of her gritty vocal combined with her superb guitar technique, her loop pedals and trumpet, make for a truly unforgettable musical experience.
Not content with mastering a unique choice of musical instruments, SON gained a BA in Music, majoring in recording techniques and minoring in the art of performance.
"Not only is she a powerhouse vocalist, a talented musician, she also knows how to get it down onto a track when it comes to the studio." - Hot Press
Her debut album 'Found Myself Lost' contains some incredibly well-crafted songs and her voice sometimes soulful, sometimes brash but always beautiful, is world class. Ignore her at your peril, SON is here to stay. More Information
+ Special Guest ANDIE (Blue Mtns)
21 year old Andie has been busking and performing professionally in the upper-mountains villages of Leura and Katoomba since the age of 11 and is deeply connected to her local community and music scene, living and breathing the lifestyle of a young musician.
Electric guitar, an understanding of jazz, folk finger-picking and soaring vocals are brought together to create her unique flavour of soul. More Information
