Travis O’Neill is a singer/songwriter from County Sligo, Ireland. Travis has taken his craft and storytelling from the farm in Ireland to the world stage from playing in front of 100.000 people to playing solo acoustically to anyone who is willing listen to his songs

The passion for songs, songwriting and music has taken him around the world and back again. The “Cardinal sins” band was formed after the demise of Prague based rock and rollers the “5 Foot Assassins” .

This newly formed band has played everywhere from backyard sales, markets, theatres to venues and festivals all over Europe. Influenced by Hank williams, Johnny Cash, Christy Moore, Dylan, The Dubliners , Black Flag, The Clash and Townes Van Zandt

After the release of ep Volume 1 and more recently a vinyl only single “Grapes of Luvah” on legendary German label (Squoodge records) Travis added a full line up to bring a new and different sound to both Live and studio recording.

Now with the advent of the release of the 1st full band album “Heart Shaped Hooks” , Travis O’Neill and his cardinal sins will be touring in support of this collection of acoustic, country tinged songs.
