Song Stories: Aoife O'Donovan "Porch Light" Live with Collings 0 Series

Aoife O’Donovan is a busy musician, releasing solo records like January’s In The Magic Hour, touring with Glen Hansard, and being a member of a handful of bands, like I'm With Her and formerly Crooked Still. So when her trusted 1934 Martin 0-17 started to look a little worse for wear, the guitarist had to find an alternative to take on the road. That’s when Collings got involved.

After being recommended a small-bodied Collings 0 Series by her bandmate, O’Donovan gave the guitar a shot. And when Collings actually lent her the same guitar for a tour with Glen Hansard, she fell in love. She feels her style has evolved and developed around playing small-bodied guitars, like her well-loved Martin, so the newer Collings did just the trick.

Watch the video to hear Aoife perform "Porch Light" off of In The Magic Hour with her Collings, discuss how she finds time to finish albums on the road, and how feedback and critique make her a better songwriter. Check out Aoife's website to buy In the Magic Hour and see upcoming tour dates.
