Don Mescall


Don Mescall songs have sold on over 10 million records worldwide and received more than 16 million hits on YouTube!

Since releasing his debut album ‘Innocent Run’ in 2006 his reputation as a songwriter has truly skyrocketed. His songs have been sought out and recorded by a diverse group of highly acclaimed pop, country, folk and even classical artists, many reaching the top of the charts in the very competitive global music market.

Don’s songs have been recorded by Rascal Flatts, The Backstreet Boys, Lonestar, Ronan Keating, Mackenzie Porter, Sharon Corr,  Boyzone,  Aslan, Lulu, Woodstock’s legendary Richie Havens, Neal McCoy, Brian Kennedy, Luke Dickens, Jaydee Bixby, The High Kings, Frances Black, and many more.

Don is also a successful performer in his own right, singing his own compositions and appearing on stages throughout his native Ireland and the UK, Europe and the States. He is actively involved in music production, recording, and the development of new talent worldwide. Don presently divides his time between London, Dublin and Nashville.

His most recent achievements include the release of Boyzone’s ‘BZ20’ 20th Anniversary album, which featured three of his compositions: ‘Heaven is’, ‘The Hour Before Christmas’, and rock Anthem ‘Rise’. The Record made the Top Ten in both the UK and Irish album charts followed by a sold out the live Arena tour.

Earlier in 2013 Irish legendary rock outfit Aslan made the Number One slot with another of Don’s songs ‘Too Late For Hallelujah’. Shortly after, Aslan and Don Mescall reached No.2 in the Irish singles chart with the duet ‘Catch your Fall’ which helped raise awareness and funds for Pieta House Suicide and Self Harm Awareness Organization.

Other notable successes in 2014 included co-writing seven songs for Sharon Corr’s new album, ‘The Same Sun’ produced by Mitchel Froom. As well as having enjoyed international success as a songwriter, Don Mescall remains one of Ireland’s best-loved singer-songwriters, where his own acoustic performances sell out wherever he plays. Past media reviews have likened Don to Paul Simon, Jackson Browne or a laid-back version of Springsteen, with parallels also being made with David Gray and Damien Rice. Tracks from Don’s debut album ‘Innocent Run’ remain on the playlists of major radio stations throughout Ireland and the UK.
