Amelia Hogan Sings

Picture of Amelia
Amelia Hogan is an impeccably authentic singer of Celtic music, and her “lilting, buoyant, distinctive voice” (AM Kennedy, Irish Music Magazine) comes through in honeyed tones on Irish, Scottish, British, and American-styled vocals. She sings both contemporary and traditional music well versed in the Irish music tradition of Sean-Nós, or “old style”, a highly lyrical solo a cappella style, as well as with accompaniment, plays bodhran, Shruti box, and a small 22-string Welsh lap harp, and tours internationally to global acclaim.

Hogan recently recorded and released Taking Flight, with Steve O’Neill of Foxtail Sound, co-produced by Ray Frank, under her private label. This new album showcases the artistry of traditional music heavyweights: Richard Mandel, David Brewer, Marla Fibish, Rebecca Richman, Maureen Brennan, and Christa Burch. She is always booking workshops, tours, and festivals for the coming season.

Previous recordings include her first solo project, Transplants: From the Old World to the New, released in March 2013, about ancestral immigration and identity, and
two traditional Irish music albums with Sheltering Sky, Keeping Watch Upon the Stars, and Long Night’s Journey, and Falling You’s trance electronica albums, Blush and soon to be released, Metanoia scheduled for 2024.

Hogan has toured with Molly’s Revenge, as their lead vocalist for their frequently sold-out, sensational Winterdance holiday tour and collaborates with artists including her group The Strand, Jimmy Murphy, Richard Mandel, Christa Burch, Maureen Brennan, Ray Frank, Julie Henigan, Niamh Parsons, Shay Black, and Noctambule.
