Shock and sadness has greeted the news of the sudden death of talented Irish musician and composer Conor Walsh.

The Mayo man had been making music since he was a teenager and just last year released his debut EP The Front.

The pianist and composer had performed at festivals including Electric Picnic, Other Voices, and Body & Soul and his music was used on short films and various Irish TV and radio documentaries.

Tributes have been pouring in on Twitter including one from Hozier who Conor had supported on his Irish tour in 2013.

‘Shocked to hear of the sudden passing of Conor Walsh’, the Bray singer/songwriter tweeted. ‘He was far too young and had far too bright a future to go like this’.
