'Same Colth Or Not' (Song Seeds Records 2013) captures Irish singer Lisa O'Neill at her best. An assured songwriter, as comfortable with lyrical pathos as she is comic turn of phrase. At times she is downright poetic, switching mood from forlorn love songs to shady tales of wheelbarrow smuggling. Her voice is a unique instrument in itself, subtle enough to execute the tender reminiscence of a song like 'Speed Boat' but powerful enough to bring the house down on the rousing call-to-arms chorus on 'Come Sit Sing'.

The album was recorded in a beautiful rented cottage in Wicklow, Ireland in the winter months with David Kitt producing and Karl Oldum engineering and includes her band Stina Sandstrom (vocals) and Mossy Nolan (bouzouki) and some wonderful interventions from London-based string duo Geese (Emma Smith & Vincent Sipprell).
