Amelia Hogan is an impeccably authentic singer of Celtic music, and her heart
comes through in honeyed tones on Irish, Scottish, British, and American-styled vocals. She sings in the Irish music tradition of Sean-Nós, or “old style”, a highly lyrical solo a cappella style, as well as with accompaniment, plays bodhran and a small 22-string Welsh lap harp, and has toured internationally to global acclaim.
Hogan recently recorded and released Taking Flight, with Steve O’Neill of Foxtail Sound, co-produced by Ray Frank, under her solo label. This new album showcases the talents of traditional music heavyweights: Richard Mandel, David Brewer, Marla
Fibish, Rebecca Richman, Maureen Brennan, and Christa Burch. She is currently booking workshops, tours, and festivals for the coming season.
Previous recordings include her first solo project, Transplants: From the Old World to the New, released in March 2013, about ancestral immigration and identity, and
two traditional Irish music albums with Sheltering Sky, Keeping Watch Upon the Stars, and Long Night’s Journey, and Falling You’s trance electronica album, Blush.
Hogan has toured with Molly’s Revenge as their lead vocalist for their frequently sold-out, sensational Winterdance holiday tour and collaborates with artists including her group The Strand, Richard Mandel, Christa Burch, Maureen Brennan,
Ray Frank, Julie Henigan, Niamh Parsons, Shay Black, and Cullan’s Hounds.
“Possibly the best singer of the Irish music tradition, west of the Rockies!” – R. Rodriquez, Folknik review
