Former lead vocalist and songwriter for League of Nation, Theo Fitzgibbon, has finally shared his debut single today.
Dublin singer-songwriter Theo Fitzgibbon has unveiled his debut single 'Waterfall' today, chosen as Hot Press' Track of the Day for its soaring chorus and heartfelt theme.
Fitzgibbon is no stranger to performing - he has played at every major gig venue in Dublin as lead vocalist and songwriter for League of Nation. Now stepping out on his own, 'Waterfall' is the perfect introduction to a new talent.
If you follow Theo's Instagram page, you'll have seen Carpool Karaoke-esque video appearances from James Kavanagh, TikTok star James Doyle, comedian Mark Mehigan, comic Dylan Moran and even Fitzgibbon's granny in his car to hear 'Waterfall' for the first time.

After his time on the gig circuit, Fitzgibbon wanted to hone his craft and went to IMW in London to study music production. Following his time studying in London, Theo took a break from music to attend a treatment centre in Dublin to address some addiction issues. After taking the time and doing the work to change his life’s direction, the musician was ready to start putting all of his energy into his music career.
“I am thrilled to be releasing my debut single," Theo said in a press release. "Waterfall is a tune I am really proud of, it’s what my music is all about: punchy, catchy music with a belter of a chorus and amazing production, in this case from the incredibly talented Marc Carolan.”
In his own words, Theo wants to write the kind of pop music that “people can sing when they’re having a few drinks in a kitchen somewhere at 4am”. He's been hugely inspired by Noel Gallagher’s advice to write a f***ing chorus, and uses the classic line up of drums, piano and of course, guitar, to create the booming track.
The warm, pop-driven song was produced by Marc Carolan (Muse) and features Jake Curran (guitarist, Niall Horan) Kev Corcoran (keys, Villagers) Rob Malone (bass, Villagers, David Gray).
