About Susan Quirke

I am a singer, songwriter, producer, meditation teacher, a speaker and leader of mass meditation experiences, and a multi-award-winning social entrepreneur for my work in the field of mental health and wellbeing. I believe music and meditation are powerful forces for healing and transformation in the world. I know they have been in my own life, something I'm deeply grateful for. I am thrilled to have released my debut album 'Into the sea' on April 23rd, 2021. You can order digital and signed CDs from Bandcamp here. It is also on Spotify, Apple and various other music platforms.

I am originally from Oola in Co. Limerick and now based in Lahinch on the west coast of Ireland in Co. Clare. My music and meditation work have been featured on national outlets such as the Sunday Independent, Irish Independent Weekend Magazine, Irish Times, RTÉ Radio 1's Arena, Hot Press, The Ray D'Arcy Show, The John Creedon Show, Late Date on RTÉ 1, BBC Radio Ulster ('Album of the week'), Irish Country Magazine, and on the Róisín Meets podcast. I have performed my music and also led mass meditation experiences from the main stages of major Irish festivals such as Electric Picnic and Body&Soul and for societal and cultural events like #StandForTruth where I led a meditation experience for over 6,000 people in 2018. I have also performed my music for figures such as the Dalai Lama and the President of Ireland in Áras an Uachtaráin. Incredible memories and hopefully many more to come.  

Prior to my album release, I released 6 original tracks alongside 4 music videos, achieved an iTunes no.1, and played at venues throughout Ireland, the US and Australia. My debut album ‘Into the Sea’ features Irish music veterans Colm Mac Con Iomaire on violin, Colm Quearney on guitar, Robbie Malone on bass, Justin Carroll on piano, and Graham Hopkins on drums. The album was engineered by Ruth Kennington and Rían Trench, and mixed and mastered by Grammy award winner David Odlum, and co-produced by myself and Colm Quearney.  

I am also an advanced certified meditation teacher and have trained with the 1 Giant Mind Academy in New York and in Australia. I've worked alongside international elite athletes, sports teams including the Irish Rugby team, companies and organisations such as Three Ireland, ESB, the Law Society, the University of Limerick, Fáilte Ireland, and CISCO as well as musicians and creatives, CEOs based in countries throughout the world, as well as many other corporate and community groups. I offer 3-day Learn to Meditate online courses, online wellbeing and meditation talks, mass meditation experiences, and one-to-one online sessions. Meditation is mind-blowingly powerful and absolutely everyone can do it. Check out my popular 3-day learn to meditate course here which I teach every week online to people all throughout Ireland and all over the world.

A story about the journey of making my debut album and not giving up on myself  

I've resisted sharing this story as it can be a vulnerable thing to do, but if it gives just one person here a nudge to follow their dream, I'll be happy. This is a story about the journey of making my debut album and not giving up on myself. 

I grew up in a house full of music in a village called Oola in County Limerick. That's me in the photo rocking the hipster dungarees with my sister Caitriona.

As a toddler, any time a song came on the radio, I would start singing it two seconds in. I had an ear for…
