Cormac O’Caoimh’s intimate vocals, magical melodies and exquisite guitar playing have always attracted very favourable reviews from critics. Mojo, The Irish Times, HotPress, R2, Americana UK, OndaRock in Italy and many more have pointed to his unique style and compared him to acts as varied as The Go Betweens, Badly Drawn Boy, Elliott Smith and Prefab Sprout, Nick Drake, Leonard Cohen and Paul Simon. But he sees himself as a pop song-writer.
