“The Donegal singer- songwriter’s craft brims at every turn with pathos and pure insight, and is rounded off with a melodic sensibility all his very own”. The Thin Air
Joel Harkin calls himself an alternative, ambient folk singer. He writes songs about cherry blossoms and old churches, about lost friends and migrations and a fear of dying. He is a humourist, a poet, and a philosopher. He has been influenced by Modest Mouse, Phoebe Bridgers, Conor Oberst, Gregory and the Hawk and many others. He is glad he didn’t follow his dads advice and become a horse doctor. His ambition is happily unchecked.
