Róisín O’s 2012 debut The Secret Life of Blue was a stirring and sonorous collection that announced her arrival in a big way. Over the course of her career she’s played on bills with everyone from Bryan Ferry to Lionel Richie, opened for her mom on her U.S. tour, formed the band Thanks Breother with John Broe and she’s been known to post YouTube clips of her covering tracks by Selena Gomez and Sia. Her new album Courageous is a powerful an evocative collection, filled with some of the most captivating vocals you’ll hear all year—or any year, Courageous is a bold and artistic step forward. It’s beautiful work.
