Cillian King is an Irish multi-instrumentalist, singer songwriter and producer from Limerick. Taking to the Irish concertina from the age of 7, he quickly became one of the most promising exponents of Irish traditional music on the instrument and by 16 had already toured extensively through Europe.

In 2014, the self-taught guitarist made his debut as a songwriter by releasing a debut EP to critical acclaim which earned him a nomination for 'Best Male Solo Act' at the Pure M Awards 2015 alongside the likes of Duke Special, Paddy Casey and Mundy. He is currently performing with Irish/Jazz outfit, Notify, as well as appearing in a variety of roles with Irish singer Pauline Scanlon and ALDOC. Most recently, Cillian premiered the debut release from ‘Atlas’, with guitarist Cillian Doheny (Moxie) which merges Irish music with elements of orchestral and world music. ‘Affinity’ was released through American record label, Ropeadope Records in January to critical acclaim.
