Neasa de Baroid

Neasa has, for years, been dazzling audiences from Ireland to Australia and beyond with her incredible vocal range, and an equally impressive stage persona.


Whether it’s her musical theatre powerhouse vocals, or a voice known for its shimmering, spine-tingling qualities, you’ll find Neasa’s latest release celebrates the full spectrum of her multi-faceted talents. Here she puts her unique stamp, not only on her own songs, but also on others written by those eager to utilise her special talents.


Hailing from a native Irish speaking family in Cork City on the South coast of Ireland, Singer/Performer ‘Neasa’ chose to file her Psychology degree and dive full-time into the world of music, a decision that’s led to a colourful career. From folk to the opera rock band ‘Hidden Fears’, she toured extensively in Ireland, attracting the attention of various record companies.  In ‘96 she embarked on 3 years of Australian concert & TV performance. Just after her arrival in Australia she secured an album contract, her second record deal, as a result of a weekend of festival performance. “The find of the 1998 festival”. Bill O’ Brien–Kapunda Festival, Australia. Her own songs, penned with Orchestral arrangement in mind, and tested on a wide variety of audience, have proven instant commercial appeal. Her songs have also won her numerous awards. Live performance displays emotion, and her vivacious character in communicating with her audience. “Danceline Records doesn’t have time or resources to waste on second class acts. Neasa is a committed performer with a fine touch to her song writing”. Pete Mc Cluskey – Danceline Records, Ireland

She was quickly invited back to Australia to sing Irelands National Anthem at the Coca-Cola International Football Series between her homeland and Australia in Adelaide’s Football stadium.  To an audience of 48,000 she also delivered a pre-game concert, resulting in rave radio reviews, and a second invitation in 2001 to repeat the performance in Australia’s largest stadium, Melbourne’s MCG.

MUSIC STYLE:

Her rendition of well known Show and contemporary Opera songs, and her own compositions are delivered with passion, which is repeatedly a subject of positive comment and review: “Neasa is such a singer that one feels she can adapt her rich mature voice to any material she chooses. A great part of her charm is the very expressive manner in which she performs the material” - Irish Examiner “More than music, this is theatre” - Hot Press Magazine. Having flirted with various music styles over the years, Opera, Rock, Jazz, Folk, Neasa became more focused on her dream style of music and show when she collaborated with members of the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra. Since her return to Ireland she further developed this show incorporating the musical talents of Ken Marshall. Neasa delivers passionate and pure vocals, sometimes woven with the haunting sound of her panpipes, a highly emotionally charged performance.


One of Neasa’s recent projects was Unique Music which ran for nine years, becoming one of the forerunners in providing music for weddings, corporate and private functions in Ireland.  She now performs as a solo artist, and is accompanied by musicians, dependent on requirements of her client and venue.
