She is a nine-time champion Irish step dancer and an All-Ireland fiddle champion. She has released solo albums, and has earned a long list of published tracks on critically acclaimed albums as feature artist. Horan composed two tracks, “Little Mona Lisa” and “A Daisy in December,” which were featured in the third season of the competitive dance television series So You Think You Can Dance.
