Lara O’Donnell is a 20-year-old singer songwriter & guitarist from Donegal, and is currently a 3rd year music student at Ulster University, Magee. Some of her influences are drawn from modern folk acts such Maggie Rogers & First Aid Kit.

Lara has been involved in a project called Magy's Farm where she got the opportunity to record her songs with producers Rocky O’Reilly & Matt Curran, with one of those songs recently winning the judges’ choice for Northern Ireland Song Of The Year in the Next Big Thing competition.
