Steo Wall is a singer songwriter from Dublin now living county Clare. In June 2018 he launched his debut album, Where I'm From, at the Doolin folk festival. The album sees Steo collaborating with Irish folk legends, Damian Dempsey, Luka Bloom and Davy Spillane. And in 2019 Steo was asked back to play a headline slot at the Doolin Folk festival's main stage. Where I'm From is a mix of spoken word and folk inspired melodies all woven to an acoustic groove. Having received national air play and spending two weeks on Radio1 recommended playlist, Where I'm From has been very well received. Steo was asked to perform at the Inaugural RTÉ Radio1 Folk Awards in Vicar Street last year. And was also asked to sing, Rainy Night In Soho by The Pouges as part of Ireland's Favourite Folk song over the summer. Steo has been busy touring Where I'm From all over Ireland in 2019. 
 
Stephen McDermott writing in Journal.ie remarked "One of the recurring themes in his lyrics is his pride in his Traveller heritage: Wall is half-Traveller, something which took him a while to come to terms with. Growing up in Dublin, he reveals how he was blind to the racism experienced by Travellers, which he acknowledges is down to the fact that he didn’t experience it the same way."
