Fiona O'Shea's contemporary blend of music appeals to mainstream audiences with her solid song writing ranging from lyrical mysticism through to storytelling truths. Her music is loose and eclectic on the surface held together by her own unique vocal stylings, sounding much like a fresh take on the earthiness of Stevie Nicks or Sheryl Crow but with the raw depth and grit of Chrissy Amphlett.

Having the freedom of an independent artist and a thirst to explore new creative highs her single Build Me A House, landed at #10 on the iTunes Singles Country Chart in February, 2021. Produced by Peter Koppes (The Church) with accomplished musicians such as Jackie Barnes on drums and mastered at Studios 301 by Steve Smart, one of Australia's most respected and prolific engineers (Paul Kelly, Kasey Chambers, Casey Barnes).

2019 saw the release of six track EP, Walk Like A Giant and single Big Bang receiving widespread airplay charting on the AMRAP Regional Top 10 charts. Produced and recorded at Pacific International Music by Robert Mackay, who said “...love this EP. The record has a personality that is rare these days with great songs and a real band feel. It is what music should be”.
Fiona's debut release in 2010 titled Rose, saw single Restless A Little Reckless also rise to the Top 10 AIRIT Charts and in 2013 was a finalist in the MUSICOZ Australian Independent Awards as well as going through to the second round of judging for the APRA Professional Development Awards.

Fiona continues to increase her fan base by playing at festivals Agnes Blues, Roots & Rock Festival, Mitchell Creek Rock and Blues Festival, programmed artist Woop Woop Festival – Roma 2020 (cancelled), main stage event Gympie NYE 2019 and at venues, private events and support act for Dirty Rascal (Melbourne) Jerry Speiser – Men At Work, Adam Brand & The Outlaws, Bill Chambers, and the showcase artist at Turn Up (Sunshine Coast Music Industry Conference). The festival hiatus of 2020 is now slowly recovering and bookings are starting to roll in for 2021 with the Agnes Blues, Roots & Rock Festival and Glen Innes Fest now confirmed and more are to be announced soon.

“I saw Fiona O'Shea & The Passengers at Mitchell Creek Rock n Blues Festival. They are great live performers! If you haven't had a chance to see them yet be sure to get along to one of their shows soon.” - WHAT I SEE PHOTOGRAPHY
