With sell-out shows in Ireland and Canada, and performing for Oscar-winner Glen Hansard, 0Stella's [oh-Stella] alt-rock Irish fusion is captivating audiences everywhere. This is rock and roll with traditional Irish fiddle and bodhrán (sometimes wrapped in thick distortion) and catchy pop melodies that shimmer with rebellion. 0Stella sings in both English and Irish and regularly engages the crowd to sing along in both languages - whether performing solo or with her 5-piece band. 0Stella's unique sound deftly combines Canadian rock with Irish storytelling and folk music and draws comparisons to Paramore, Garbage, Lana Del Rey and The Frames. The zero-waste advocate (thus the zero in her name) accumulated a staggering 8,500 kms of cycling in support of her two albums, Freefall (2022) and Skyward (2023), while advocating for environmental conservation. The cycling album tour took 0Stella across Canada and Europe. A full vinyl record, Pendulum State, is due out in June 2024 on Dead Doll Records.
0Stella began her solo tour on Earth Day, April 20, 2022, with her bike, a tent, solar panel and carbon fibre guitar, and embarked on an awe-inspiring cycling tour from Victoria, BC, to Halifax, NS. The tour resonated deeply with fellow Canadians, as 0Stella forged genuine connections with people after prolonged isolation. In 2023 she cycled through BC once again before making her way through Europe on her Who Needs This cycling tour to promote her Skyward album. The tour included sold-out shows at Irish venues like The Ruby Sessions and Whelan's. 0Stella finished off the year with ‘Fighting To Get Along’ being listed on Nova Radio's 100 Best Indie Songs of 2023. Expect extraordinary performances with her signature alt-rock sound infused with Irish storytelling and folk influences.
In 2020 0Stella pivoted to play regular online shows, culminating in an international collaboration with fellow Irish musician, Callistan. The two hosted a charity show for homeless charities in Dublin and Edmonton and featured 16 names from the Irish and Canadian music scenes. Acts such as Shred Kelly, Skye Wallace, Emmett Michael and Goodnight, Sunrise made up the Canadian side while artists like ELKAE, Sinead McConville & D.Cullen and Chloë Agnew (of Celtic Women) comprised the Irish portion.
In 2019, 0Stella’s debut EP Little Yes, Little Know was recorded with Juno-nominated Brad Simons in Edmonton. She toured extensively across Canada and into Europe, performing solo and with her 5-piece band. 0Stella has showcased at CMW and played alongside Skye Wallace, Heather Valley, Whale And The Wolf and Queens & Kings. Features from X92.9 FM, CBC, Beatroute, the Calgary Herald and Edmonton Journal have helped establish the Dublin-born 0Stella on the Canadian music scene.
