No Oil Paintings are a vivacious, dynamic alternative-folk band from Belfast. Using typical folk instrumentation and four-part harmonies they produce music that’s a little wilder than what is often associated with the genre. The band switch and share vocal leads, each member playing to their own strengths and bringing their own style to the songs they shepherd.
 
Their proudest creative achievement to date has been collaborating with Grammy award winner Joss Stone during her world tour. The band were chosen to be accompanied by Joss on one of their original songs ‘God Only Knows’. The collaboration was recorded and videoed live and has received over 300,000 views online.
