Amhránaí (le raon gutha a mbeadh go leor amhránaithe oilte sa gceol clasaiceach in éad leis faoi), scríbhneoir amhrán, ilionstraimí (leanann an liosta), ealaíontóir, péintéir, damhsóir – níos mó tallainne ná mar d’fhéadfá a shamhlú. Thagair Bono babhta do Liam mar ‘Buachaill geal na n-amhránaithe sól is fearr sa domhan’, agus tá sé áirithe freisin ar dhuine de na hamhránaithe Sean-Nóis (amhráin traidisiúnta Gaeilge) is fearr in Éirinn.

Ó thosaigh Liam amach os cionn cúig bhliana fichead ó shin tá uimhir a haon sna cairteacha bainte amach aige i mbreis agus fiche tír, idir a bheith ag seinm le ceoltóirí Bundúchasacha in iargúil na hAstráile go taifead le roinnt de cheoltóirí mór le rá an domhain, ina measc, Glen Hansard, Marketa Irglova, Carlos Nunes, Donal Lunny, U2 agus Van Morrison, agus níl anseo ach roinnt acu.

The front man of the Hothouse Flowers plays a solo gig. Liam Ó Maonlaí is one of Ireland's best-loved musicians and singers, both in rock and traditional music. A singer (with a vocal range the envy of many a classically trained vocalist), songwriter, multi-instrumentalist (the list continues to grow), artist, painter, dancer - more talent than most folk can even dream of having. Bono once described Liam as 'The best white boy soul singer in the world', and he has been also been described as one of Ireland's best Sean Nós (traditional Irish) singers.

Spanning over a quarter century, Liam's career has seen him achieve number one hits in over twenty countries, from playing with Aboriginal musicians in the Australian outback to recording with some of the world's best-known musicians including Glen Hansard, Marketa Irglova, Carlos Nunes, Donal Lunny, U2 and Van Morrison, to name just a few.
