“Among the most vibrant, poignant, and authentic indie folk artists in New York City.”

Read the review

“Niall isn’t really just a folky. He’s actually a stunning wordsmith with an acute pop sensibility, as evidenced on his killer 2010 album, Brother, The Fight Is Fixed, and this year’s admittedly folk-ier Super Cool Fantastic. I highly recommend them both.”

“Brother The Fight is Fixed…will warm the hearts of anyone who likes a good old fashioned song with melody and soul.”
