The Nation Mourns is the musical brain child of Irish songwriter Neil O Shea. Growing up with a wide range of blues and rock influence, it was the haunting timbre of artist such as Tom Waits, Nick Drake, and Jackson C Frank drew him to songwriting. His song-craft leads to lyrics of landscapes and leaving for home; while subtle, melancholic melodies draw you ever further into the music.

"a signature sound that takes accepted musical norms, turns them on their head and grabs them by the scruff of the neck."
