His New Atlas: Founded May 2013 His New Atlas (Eoghan O'Hagan) has now played all over Ireland, Northern Ireland, and England. Just over a year and the 19 year old Eoghan has built a strong name, and reputation for His New Atlas with the successful release of 3 EPs, several tours, and his restless work ethic. "To say Eoghan O'Hagan has wisdom and songwriting ability beyond his years would be quite the ludicrous understatement given he's the same age as 'Girl from Mars' by Ash. A minimal arrangement gives his voice, full of yearning, the opportunity to truly soar. Ridiculously promising." - BBC Across the Line
