Seamus Fogarty Biography

Seamus Fogarty grew up in Co Mayo in the west of Ireland and spent his early years writing songs about mountains that steal t-shirts, women who look like dinosaurs and various other unfortunate incidents. Now based in London, he released his debut album God Damn You Mountain on revered Scottish indie label Fence Records on 2012. Hailed by the Irish Times as ‘one of the best Irish albums of recent years’, it was critically acclaimed on its release, leading to a slot on the main stage of The Green Man festival in Wales and extensive UK tours with the likes of James Yorkston, Pictish Trail and Malcolm Middleton (Arab Strap) and a massive solo tour around Europe.  Closer to home...

Seamus Fogarty grew up in Co Mayo in the west of Ireland and spent his early years writing songs about mountains that steal t-shirts, women who look like dinosaurs and various other unfortunate incidents. Now based in London, he released his debut album God Damn You Mountain on revered Scottish indie label Fence Records on 2012. Hailed by the Irish Times as ‘one of the best Irish albums of recent years’, it was critically acclaimed on its release, leading to a slot on the main stage of The Green Man festival in Wales and extensive UK tours with the likes of James Yorkston, Pictish Trail and Malcolm Middleton (Arab Strap) and a massive solo tour around Europe.  Closer to home (Ireland), he has played with King Creosote & Jon Hopkins in Dublin’s Vicar Street, performed at The Electric Picnic,  Castlepolooza and Kilkenny Arts festivals. 

More recently his unique approach to storytelling and sound design found an unlikely home in The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York as part of a collaboration with experimental opera company Erratica on the installation opera ‘La Celestina’ ( in fact his role was to take a 70 page written score and turn it into a virtual feast for the ears, which he did over the course of 8 months).
