While still only 23, self-professed “Irish-American Baritonist” Emmett O’Hanlon has been performing music in some form or another since he was a wee lad. At the age of six, he was already taking guitar, piano and drum lessons. In high school, he decided to pursue music full time, eventually earning degrees at the University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music and New York’s prestigious Juilliard School. O’Hanlon stepped into a bigger spotlight as a member of Celtic Thunder and he’s now enjoying a solo career, based on his serious pipes and savvy song catalog.
