W.O.A International Introduces a New Approach to Gaelic Singing with Irish Singer Lorcán Mac Mathúna

W.O.A International signs on Irish traditional singer - Lorcán Mac Mathúna to a three-year management deal.

Goa, India, November 15, 2008 --(PR.com)-- W.O.A International announces the signing of Lorcán Mac Mathúna, one of the best emerging talents in Irish traditional singing. With his unique approach to Gaelic singing he is all set to change the face of traditional music like never before.

"The roots of W.O.A Records can be found in World music and with the signing of Lorcán we are strengthening this foundation" says Executive Vice President / Marketing Head Wanda Alvares, "Lorcán is an exciting addition to W.O.A Managements strong artist roster."

Lorcán Mac Mathúna was born in Cork, into a family with a passion for traditional music and singing. He has been singing traditional songs for the best part of two decades, learning from a broad range of individuals and styles.

Lorcan's style is confident and measured and expresses the feeling of his songs by connecting the listener to the emotions of the song's creators. "My approach can be best described as innovative and exciting. I use layers of accompaniment and harmony which are then added to the vocal tradition of ancient unaccompanied songs", says Lorcán, whose presentation pricks your curiosity as he shares his enthusiasm for tunes, songs and stories and the people who carried the tradition from the past.

He was described by the Journal of Music in Ireland, as having "both - the voice and the attitude to place him in the first rank of the new wave of traditional singers".

W.O.A Records has confirmed that Lorcán will be included in the highly anticipated WOA Records compilation CD, 'Indie No.1s - Vol.1'. For the latest updates on the artist please visit the W.O.A Records website at http://www.woarecords.com
