More About Niall McNamee

Niall McNamee is an Irish singer-songwriter and actor known for his own passionate, thoughtful and full-blooded songs. He has starred opposite Pierce Brosnan, fought with Jackie Chan, played comic foil to Bono, and romantically duetted with Imelda May. 

A self-taught musician, Niall has been immersed in music his whole life. Throughout years as a struggling young actor, Niall supported himself performing Irish folk songs, resulting in his knowledge of traditional music growing rich and deep. But all the while, he was writing his own material, drawing on that heritage but pushing into contemporary rock and pop territory. 

His latest EP ‘Step By Step’, showcases the musicians deep love for storytelling lyrics. Touching on life experiences and human emotions, the five-track release narrates heartbreak, nights out, ecstatic joy and reflection.

Having written and performed with leading Irish singer-songwriter Imelda May, their latest duet “Don’t Let Me Stand On My Own” off of 11 Past The Hour made #1 album in the Irish charts. Niall has built a devoted fanbase and performed sold-out concerts at notable venues including POWEHAUS (Dingwalls’  ,The Dublin Castle (London), Spirit Store (Dundalk) Grand Social, Workmans (Dublin) Sunflower (Belfast) and with this major film and the release of his debut album, 2023 is shaping up to be a very big year for Niall and we wish him all the success in the world.

Here is a link to a short film of Niall performing some of his songs Live on the ICC’s monthly Irish Arts Radio Show “Bright Side of The Road” broadcast on Portobello Radio.
