Liam Oragh

Dublin based alternative singer-songwriter Liam Oragh has recently released a new album which is interestingly titled, The Arguments Against Insanity and is the follow up to his award-winning debut album, Only 2 Late If Ur Dead.

It contains songs about madness, songs about life, love, getting older, and cryogenically cheating death, with stop offs along the way that include his topical single Oblivious which is about how we're all walking around like zombies with our heads stuck in our mobile phones.

The album sees Liam Oragh alternately channeling the musical stylings of Jonathan Richman, John Cale, Lou Reed et al with his own inimitable aplomb. The album is infused with humour, hints of punkiness, shades of Americana and just plain musical goodness despite the darkness contained within the lyrics. If you like your singer-songwriters quirky then LiamOragh is yer man.

Songs to stay sane to, or songs to go insane to? You'd better decide as he's not sure yet. But the one thing he is certain of is, who needs therapy when you've got music!
