Cross-genre trumpet star Niall O'Sullivan has wowed audiences all across Ireland and the USA. His interpretations of jazz ballads and classical works have earned him abundant international praise, and his reinvention of traditional tangos has audiences rising to their feet repeatedly. Whether he is performing with full orchestra or just a piano, Niall O'Sullivan and his fellow musicians continue to dazzle the public and give them a fresh appreciation for the trumpet.
As a side man, Niall has worked with the biggest names in music, including Tom Jones, Michael Búble, Amy Winehouse, Perry Como, Dionne Warwick, Jose Carreras, Sinead O'Conor and was recently guest soloist for Josh Groban's Irish tour. His latest album Niall O'Sullivan and Friends features a host on international artists, including Grammy Award-winning guitarist Larry Carlton, opera superstar Danielle de Niese, and theatre royalty Kim Criswell. Accompaniment was provided by the RTÉ Concert Orchestra and was produced by the legendary British musician Julian Lloyd Webber.

She has toured throughout Ireland, Europe, and the USA, and performed with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra in Ireland's National Concert Hall, singing songs from the Great American Songbook to a full house.
