Album Notes
Galway singer/songwriter Ultan Conlon has become recognised
as a master songwriter in Ireland. His talent for capturing the
human spirit through his lyrics has been honed over almost two
decades of writing and performing original material. As Ultan’s
confidence to craft great songs grows, so does the captive audiences
he draws in at his live shows. The quality of his songwriting is
matched only by his voice, both powerful yet fragile, that some
critics have likened to the great Roy Orbison.

Ultan’s back catalogue – two EPs and two studio albums to date –
has received extensive international radio airplay, inclusion on
the award-winning movie, Songs For Amy, as well as receiving
numerous positive reviews from critics-turned-fans. He has also
performed on Irish national television several times.

His last offering, Songs Of Love So Cruel, also deserves attention. Co-produced and mixed
by acclaimed engineer Colin Elliot (Richard Hawley), Ultan and
a full band returned to Ireland from performing the new album
to a full house at the infamous Viper Room on Sunset Boulevard
in Hollywood.

More recently an invite came to return stateside as guest to
The Watkins Family Hour, at Largo, Los Angeles. Ultan
performed songs with Jackson Browne and Shelby Lynn.

Songs Of Love So Cruel has been featured on national radio
broadcasters including RTE, Today FM and Newstalk as well
as enjoying extensive airplay in the UK on BBC Radio 2. The
single ‘In The Mad’ reached 68 in the airplay charts, the
second highest placed independently released Irish single of
that week. It remained on the RTE playlist for an incredible
five weeks.

Five songs from Ultan’s latest offering were also featured
alongside a score he co-composed with guitarist Eoin McCann
in the award winning film Songs For Amy, which played at IMC
cinemas nationwide (IRL) in May 2015. UK and American
theatrical releases are now scheduled to happen very soon.

Songs For Amy screened at the Boston Film Festival as well
as The Newport Film Festival (2012), where it took home
the Just Award.

Having shared the stage with the likes of Jackson Browne,
Shelby Lynn, John Grant, Eddi Reader, Patty Griffin and
Richard Hawley, Ultan has also performed duets with Glen
Hansard and John Martyn. The latter Scottish folk legend
went onto record one of Ultan’s early works, Really Gone,
in 2005.

Ultan has just finished recording and mixing his latest studio
album, 'Last Days Of The Night Owl', in Nashville Tennessee, with Grammy award winning
engineer Collin Dupuis (The Black Keys, Dr. John, Steve Earle,
Lana Del Ray, Ray Lemontagne).
