Music.She has been performing from a young age and is following her dream to become a successful singer/songwriter in the music industry.

Her 1st single ‘Falling in Love Again’ was released in August 2013 which got to No. 16 in the iTunes pop charts and now Olwyn has just released her first music video to her first single ‘Falling in Love Again’.

From the age of 8 Olwyn started getting vocal lessons with Lavinia Gilmartin in Ballina and from there she was a part of Irish singing feises receiving a number of medals, trophies and cups.

At the age of 10 Olwyn was a member of a group called ‘Spirit’ ,a group of 7 girls from the Ballina area who performed throughout Mayo in concerts, panto’s and different events.

Olwyn never stopped singing as she took part in many school musical’s, and performed at many gigs with a number well known and accomplished artists.

At the age of 15 Olwyn was chosen to sing on ‘The Late Late Toy Show’ on RTE. Olywn sang live on thee show to a viewing audience of in excess one million.

In the summer of 2008 & 2009 Olwyn went to Los Angeles , Hollywood to perform in the ‘World Championship of Performing Arts’ where over the 2 years she won a total of 5 gold medals and one silver medal for different categories in music and she also got recognized by different record labels and was offered
record deals.

In 2010 Olwyn entered the ‘All Ireland Talent Show’ on RTE representing the West for her mentor Daithi O’Shea. After performing live on RTE1 for several weeks in front of millions of viewers, next came a hectic promotional journey for Olwyn which included many radio interviews, appearances at national schools, performmances at gigs and concerts, attendance at local media events all to promote herself for the talent show. Olwyn was one of the finalists on the All-Ireland Talent Show in 2010 while she was also studying for her Leaving Certificate at Ballyhaunis Community School.After her performance on the All-Ireland Talent Show Olwyn was invited to perform at many concert dates and festivals across the country.

September 2010 Olwyn moved to the UK to study music at ‘The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts’ [LIPA]. The ccompetition for places was intense and only after a number of interviews and auditions Olwyn was selected as one of 60 out of thousands of applicants for this course.

Working on her song writing and music skills Olwyn was soon writing her own songs and performing them around Liverpool.

She set up an acoustic band and was preforming at a wide range of venues. While sstudying a music degree in the UK, Olwyn wanted to get the best she could out of her studies. She recorded many tracks played with other talented musicians, collaborated with other song writer’s co -writing new material and worked with many people in the UK music industry.

December 2012 Olwyn was also a part of the Hillsborough Christmas Number 1 ‘He ain’t heavy he’s my brother’ performing in the choir on the track with massive artists such as ‘Paul McCartney’ and ‘Robbie Williams’.

Olwyn set up a larger band with amazingly talented musicians to play larger gigs and showcase her music andthe material that she co-wrote with other talented song writers and musicians. She is now based in Ireland doing a few mini gigs throughout the country this summer and she is now in the middle of mastering her next single ‘See you Again’ which will be released in the next month. Olwyn is writing as much as she can, gigging as much as she can and more importantly following her dream.
