John Spillane is a musician, songwriter, performer, recording artist, storyteller, poet, dreamer - a canvas filled with colour and brilliance. His music transports the listener and his live performance captivates the audience. In a word filled with strife and upheavel a time-out with John Spillane is enough to ease the load a bit on anyone lucky enough to bask in his light.
"When I started out with rock bands, I sang in an American accent. Then I heard real Americans sing the blues and it made me feel like a fraud. Ever since then, the most important thing for me is to be true to who I am and where I come from."
Starting out in Cork as part of Jazz vocal group - The Stargazers, it was in 1992 when a young traditional band called Nomos changed Spillane's life. The band was made up of concertina player, Niall Vallely, Donegal fiddler, Liz Doherty (replaced by Cork fiddle player Vince Milne on the second album), bodhrán player, Frank Torpey, and Gerry McKee on mandocello and bazouki. Spillane played acoustic guitar and fretless electric bass while also contributing songs to the group. Together they toured the world and produced two albums, Set You Free and I Won't Be Afraid Anymore. Spillane then left to pursue a solo career
