Alternative Singer Songwriter Liam Oragh's self-produced debut album 'Only 2 Late if you're Dead' was released to critical acclaim a few years ago, with comparisons to Lou Reed and early U2, it won the Jackie Hayden Pick of the Fortnight Award in HotPress magazine which included radio plays on radio stations throughout the country. His song Hey Nelson in particular, continues to garner praise, it featured on Dublin City Fm in the wake of Nelson Mandela's death and was even played on South African radio earlier this year.

"Wonderfully quirky" was how it was described after his performance at this years Acoustic Yard Festival in Westport and Liam is really looking forward to performing it during the song contest at this year's Hardly Strictly Festival at the end of the month.

Liam released an album at the end of last year under the band name Crooked Karma, which is a collaboration between him and Australian Singer-Songwriter Warren Newton - an interesting collection with the fact that neither of them have ever met each other continuing to pique curiosity.

He is currently finishing demos for his second solo album which he hopes to release soon.
