It’s been an incredible start to the year for Irish singer songwriter Una Healy. Earlier this month she played a run of festivals and shows including London’s C2C and a headline slot at Belfast’s Nashville Songwriters Festival. Now she returns with her first ever solo headline tour and brand-new music, announcing her single Never See Me Cry will be released this Friday, March 30th.
Co-written by Una with Nick Atkinson and Edd Holloway, Una explains “I wrote “Never See Me Cry” as an empowerment anthem for anybody who’s ever had someone walk all over them. It’s a big ‘f you’ to a lover, a boss or a friend thats ever made you feel small or worthless. It’s a fight song for everyone out there who are sick of being dominated – the tides are turning out there and it’s clear that it’s our time to take back control’.”
Also today, Una has announced the Voice Inside Of Me UK Tour, kicking off in Killarney on June 15th. Una will then go onto play Galway and Dublin before heading over to the UK where she headlines Glasgow’s King Tuts, Manchester’s Deaf Institute and London’s Lexington.

Una worked with some of the world’s most acclaimed songwriters and producers, including Grammy winner Amy Wadge, Ben Earle from The Shires and singer songwriter Jack McManus. The album weaves magnetic folk, pop and rock melodies into echoes of the country music she grew up with and is available to stream on Spotify at .
