John Spillane is a musician, songwriter, performer, recording artist, storyteller, poet. His live performance captivates the audience. He is a native of Cork, the county he lovingly describes as “the centre of the universe”, and it has been a huge creative influence on him.
Vocally, he is quite unique with an almost sean nóslike element in his singing and he is said to have a voice “full of honesty, commitment and sensitivity”. Two-time Meteor award winner, John is one of the most accomplished songwriters in Ireland today. Among those who have covered his songs are Christy Moore, Karan Casey, Pauline Scanlon, Cathy Ryan, Sharon Shannon, Sean Keane and George Murphy.
