Today’s Featured Artist – INTERVIEW – Niall McNamee

Tell Us About:

Your latest single you have released:

All I Need is a mixture between a love song and an anti war song. I wrote it when I was 18 and I inspired by the beautiful song ‘Willie McBride’

Your first single and how you felt when it was released: 

When my first single was released last year (‘Fishpond’) it was along the moment exciting things I’ve ever done. I had been waiting so long to release music but never knew how, so to be able to give my followers a way to listen in a different way to live was brilliant.

Your favourite song to play live:

It changes but I’m really enjoying a new song I’ve written called ‘Falling in love for the day’ . It seems to get into the minds of any crowd quite quickly.

Your most emotional track:

I think ‘All I Need’ is the most emotional track of mine released. There’s a lot going on in the story.

The best lyric you have ever written:

So I’m told it’s ‘Money never made us laugh and money never made you mine’ from ‘All I Need’. 

Describe the feeling you get when you walk on stage to do a show:

Terrified but once I get started it disappears.

Essential items you always take on tour with you?

Brian my guitar case and pal.

Describe your fans in three words:

Full blooded. Passionate. Up for it.

A song by another artist or band you wish you had written:

 England’s Motorway by Ewan McColl

What we can look forward to from your band this year:

I’m the lead in a film next year called ‘Love Without Walls’ about a struggling singer songwriter who falls on hard times. The soundtrack to the movie is all of my own songs so I’m delighted that it’ll be out in 2022.
