Debut Release by Chirpy Out June 27

Introducing for the first time Dublin born female solo artist, C H I R P Y. An Irish folk, alt-pop, singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.

Her debut 6 track taster EP ‘Real Life’ will hit iTunes on 27 June 2017. This release has most of her contemporaries curious. Born Rebecca Shannon, she has been around Dublin on the Irish music scene for the past 10 years performing most notably with Anuna (where the likes of Julie Feeney and Hozier started). She has toured Ireland, the UK, Europe, the US and Asia as a singer and is featured on various recordings and television specials in the US and Australia. A former diamond grader, Chirpy recorded, produced and mixed all six tracks here in Dublin before sending the final finishes off to UK based Pete Maher (U2, The Rolling Stones, The Killers) for mastering.

The title track ‘Real Life’ is a classic lively summer tune with the potential to re-introduce much loved and familiar classical music elements into a fresh, raw, new sound, with the atmosphere of a live performance and a clear message. ‘The Sister’ paints a sharp image drawing on country and folk elements with text from the Irish poet Francis Ledwidge, whose centenary will take place on 31 July 2017. ‘Heavy Hearted’, ‘Nowhere Land’, ‘I Wish It Was My Home’ and ‘Tomorrow’ are perfect examples of maintaining the raw elements to any musical genre that make it human again. Chirpy cites many influences across popular, classical, heavy metal, blues and folk, yet manages to package each song into her own unique experience. Her style has more recently been compared to a broad range of artists including: Fleet Foxes, Sinead O’Connor, Fleetwood Mac and Neil Young.

Chirpy’s debut self-titled album is being finalised over the coming weeks for a mid-November release with live dates to be announced soon.
