Contemporary Harpist BRÍDÍN Shares New Single

West Co. Sligo native, BRÍDÍN, carries on the traditions of unique skills and talents passed down through her family. She is fourth generation of her family to play Irish music and plays harp, flute, piano, and dances sean nós. And by day, BRÍDÍN, works as a full time funeral director and embalmer, taking after her father David McGowan, of RTE documentary fame.

She says “I’ve always been involved in funerals, working full time in it, it has completely changed my outlook on life. I see sadness every day and people going through the most horrible time. There are tragic funerals and you have to stay strong, and hold it together. When the funerals over and I go home that night I erupt. I gravitate towards my harp and write my music, which I find is a huge relief and escape.”

BRÍDÍN has developed her own style influenced by her natural surroundings and rooted in her background in traditional Irish music. Her forthcoming contemporary folk EP titled ‘Ocean of Stars’ is due February 24th 2021. It will feature five tracks, ‘Wysteria’, ‘Floating’, ‘North West’, ‘Ocean of Stars’ and ‘The Salmon’s Tale, featuring Colm Mac Con Iomaire’.

Her new single ‘Floating’ is out today: https://bridin.bandcamp.com/track/floating

Speaking about the song, Brídín says “’Floating’ is my latest single release from my forthcoming EP ‘Ocean of Stars’. I came up with this song when I was enjoying the beach in Spain one summer. It’s about how you should stop racing around every once in a while, and take a moment for yourself.

The lyrics are ‘When we go down, to the water, we don’t swim fast, we stay floating’. It’s completely different to my other releases, but they all complement each other well.”

‘Floating’ is a fun, dancy and mellow tune. BRÍDÍN uses her loop and effect pedals to create her musical pieces, and has a fantastic wealth of musicians record on this song, with Paul Leonard on drums, Brian Dillon on Keys, and Jack Selby-Smith on Bass.

Listen to BRÍDÍN’s title track ‘Floating’ from her forthcoming EP now on all digital platforms.
