One of Irelands’ most exciting rising talents, Nell Mescal kicks off her year with new single ‘Homesick’, released via LAB Records and by announcing a headline show at Oh Yeah Music Centre on March 2nd 2023. The single coincided with her second headline show in London at The Grace, following the sold-out-in-a-day debut headliner she played in late summer 2022.
‘Homesick’, once again produced by Steph Marziano, shifts the tempo from her critically acclaimed debut ‘Graduating’, showcasing another thrilling element to this young talent’s musical dexterity.

“I wrote Homesick on a trip to LA. It’s about when I first moved to London from Ireland and really missed home, but also being determined to stick it out so it doesn’t look like I failed at moving away” explains Nell. “The lyrics give a bit of insight to how hard it is to move away at a young age and the loneliness that comes with it, while the music is upbeat and hopeful to show that you can do hard things and that you can make a home wherever you go if you give it time”.
‘Graduating’s release last summer catapulted Nell into a whirlwind six months. With only the one official release behind her, she assembled a tight-knit live band for her first Irish headline tour, a sell-out London debut, All Points East Festival, a winter tour supporting Phoebe Green and she was chosen as one of the First Fifty for The Great Escape Festival. More new music will be released in due course and an ever-growing live schedule continues to build.
