"a musician of serious quality and one to watch for sure"
"It's a voice that reaches far beyond his years and oozes confidence and character"
"Nathan is one of the finest songwriters in Ireland at the moment"
Nathan O’Regan has a mastery over his voice that his peers surely envy.
Slipping gracefully between gritty impassioned pleas and sweet longing
melodies, Nathan pairs his beautiful singing with delicate, refined
songwriting. A natural raconteur, his songs are full of melancholy and
hopefulness that have captivated audiences all around Ireland.
Like any artist worth their salt, Nathan has faced his own challenges. His
voice and writing were spotted by Universal, who signed him at sixteen,
recognising even at a young age Nathan's ability to write songs that would
stop a listener in their tracks. He was paired with producer, Jimmy
Hogarth and tasked to record an album. Halfway through the project, as is
often the case, contact from the label grew cold and the work never saw
the light of day.
Universal’s mistake proved to be Ireland’s gain. Some artists capitulate
after being dropped by a major label, but Nathan has gone from strength to
strength, his talent impossible to ignore by anyone who has heard his
songs or witnessed him lead his band like it was the last gig on Earth. A
truly special talent.
"Echoes of Springsteen."

"O'Regan's slightly gravelled, and more importantly, genuine sounding passion reaches out from the song
itself and infects the listener with a defiant energy."

"Nathan O'Regan is one of Northern Ireland's musical gems and the sooner
the world hears his wonderful songs the better they will be for it."
