Maura O'Connell

Maura O'Connell embodies many paradoxes: lead singer for De Danann, she was not a traditional Celtic singer; resident of Nashville, she is not American; collaborator with New Grass Revival, she is not a bluegrass performer. Nevertheless, O'Connell has made a name for herself on two continents as a superb singer. O'Connell was born and raised in County Clare, Ireland, where she began singing at an early age. Involvement in the folk club scene led to an invitation from Celtic traditionalists De Danann to join their ranks. Her involvement with De Danann resulted in the recording of Star-Spangled Mollie, a clear indication of interest in transatlantic culture. O'Connell then began to collaborate with members of New Grass Revival, and in particular with Béla Fleck, who produced several of her tracks. Together with Fleck and others, she recorded Just in Time and made the decision to settle in Nashville, Tennessee. Since then, she has released Helpless Heart, Blue Is the Colour of Hope, and Real Life Story, each album registering a move toward a pop synthesis. Stories followed in 1995, with Wandering Home appearing two years later. As the new millennium unfolded, O'Connell signed with Sugar Hill in late 2000 and began working on her seventh album. Instead of working with her longtime producer Jerry Douglas, O'Connell had Ray Kennedy (Steve Earle, Lucinda Williams) produce Walls & Windows, which was released in 2001. Don't I Know was issued in 2004 and the a cappella album Naked with Friends followed in 2009. ~ Leon Jackson, Rovi

Unique song unique voice beautiful

Saw her last night for the 5th time in Ann Arbor, MI. She is an amazing, one of a kind performer. I adore her, and I love her Walls and Windows CD best. I love hearing her sing Blue Train, Down by the Salley Gardens, Galileo, Love you in the Middle and Blessings live. Brings tears to my eyes.
I have been a long time fan of Maura OConnell. She has one of the purest voices today. Firefly is one of my favs!
beautiful, soulful voice

Love Maura and her music-we don't hear enough of her!
Stories is an unbelievably good album.
She also seems similar to Cheryl Wheeler.
She does have a unique sound to her voice. I can't really picture her or hear her singing traditional celtic.

I have loved her for years! I play her songs for my fifth graders to enjoy while they write!

I love her voice. I'd really like it if Wandering Home made it into the playlists.
