Nell Mescal is a 20-year-old singer and songwriter from Maynooth in Kildare, Ireland. She has been singing all her life and has been performing in groups and choirs for as long as she can remember. This young emerging talent began writing music when she was just 13 years old and finally took the decision to make music her career during the pandemic, something that in hindsight, has given her the time and space to focus on her sound and what she wants to articulate in her songs.   

Since leaving school, Nell moved to North London and found herself surrounded by other young creatives and kindred spirits. Many of whom are helping Nell to discover more about what she’s capable of, are collaborating with her and giving her a thirst for knowledge that will allow her to take creative control of her future as a musician.  

Her debut single ‘Graduating’ was released in July 2022, produced by Steph Marziano. ‘Homesick’ kickstarted 2023, quickly followed by ‘In My Head’ – which was co-written with Kai Bosch – in March. ‘Punchline’ will be released via LAB this July. For more information:
