Helen O'Shea has just released her first full CD "Turning Tides..." - a collection of original songs about relationships, love, loss, motherhood, grief and friendship. Originally from Limerick, Ireland. In 1995, she moved to the USA and now lives in Princeton, NJ. Helen cowrites and collaborates regularly with two-time Grammy-winning® producer, Marc Swersky. She has a Celtic band called "Shenanigans" dedicated to performing the traditional songs of Ireland, as well as her own band "The Shanakees" (based on the Gaelic for "storyteller" - "seanachai") performing her original songs as well as duet arrangements of covers in the "AmeriCeltiCana" style - Americana with a Celtic twist.
