The vulnerability found in the music of Breeda Murphy traces back to the ballads she grew up singing in rural West Cork, Ireland. Steeped in the tradition of songs and singers, where stories are told and the voice is centre stage. Her songs, sometimes raw, sometimes allusive, always exquisitely sung, invite us to try to understand the essence of our own nature.
Breeda is delighted to blast off ‘A Place In You’ as the first single from her recent album ‘You Keep A Weather Eye’. Recorded in West Cork with co-producer Kenny Dread on delicate modal lead guitar, ‘A Place In You’ is a song that can help us through difficult times. A song of grace and beauty and uplift, it invites us to look within to find our place of stillness and wisdom.
A beautiful music video by Olivia Walsh featuring evocative underwater footage accompanies the single release.
Additionally, Cork architect Oisin Creagh used ‘A Place In You’ as the perfect soundtrack to a video of his pandemic cycle ride through of a deserted Cork city centre.
