Up-and-coming Irish sensation Nell Mescal has announced her first headline tour of Ireland today, featuring dates in Belfast, Dublin, Galway and Cork.
The 20-year-old Maynooth musician will hit the road in December, playing Voodoo Belfast (11), Whelan's (13), Róisín Dubh (14) and Cyprus Avenue (15) in the space of a week.
Her fourth release, ‘Punchline’ is released this Friday off the back of a whirlwind month which saw Nell support P!NK at Hyde Park, Florence & The Machine across Ireland as well as performing to stadium sized audiences with Dermott Kennedy.
Slots at the likes of Latitude Festival, All Point East, Kendall Calling and shows with The Last Dinner Party are all to follow, before Nell and her band head back on tour for her newly announced headline run across the UK & Ireland this Autumn.
With only a clutch of releases so far, Nell’s rise has been formidable, drawing on her childhood, relationships, Irish roots and her family as big inspirations for her songwriting. The Kildare artist began writing music when she was just 13 years old and finally took the decision to make music her career during the pandemic, relocating to North London after leaving school.
Her debut single ‘Graduating’ was released in July 2022, produced by Steph Marziano. ‘Homesick’ kickstarted 2023, quickly followed by ‘In My Head’ – which was co-written with Kai Bosch – in March. ‘Punchline’ will be released via LAB this July.
