Bella Union are delighted to announce the signing of the extraordinary talent that is Fionn Regan. The young singer-songwriter hails from the coastal outskirts of Dublin and first came to our attention through a tip off from the manager of one of our bands.
His beguiling debut album, entitled “The End of History” is due for release in August. It is a fascinating collection of musical pearls and marks the arrival of a unique new voice.
