Al O'Kane morphs swampy blues into the sound of Celtic resistance rock n roll - “West Country Gumbo from the Somerset Delta”.
“Al’s music is a cry for action nestled into a fiery acoustic blend” (Davey Ray Moor - CousteauX)
Having recently completed a European tour before the pandemic hit, Al had also just won the Shrewsbury Folk Festival open mic competition and performed twice at this year’s festival!
2020-2021 saw four self-produced releases from Al, which are available on all music providers, along with his self-titled debut album - on which he worked with many incredible acoustic musicians and was coproduced by Steve Evans (Robert Plant, Goldfrapp).
2022 saw Al returning to the live music circuit with a summer tour of festivals and smaller club gigs. He is now writing a new album and will be back in 2023 with a new band - “Al is Set for BIG things!” BBC Bristol.
