It has certainly been a busy few years for Gráinne which has led to animpressive array of shows, including two nights opening for Gladys Knight at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre, Eagle Eye Cherry, and a festival appearance at Glastonbury.
Gráinne has gained a reputation as an outstanding vocalist, touring internationally with Mark Geary, and sharing stages with Glen Hansard, Liam Ó Maonlaí and Damien Dempsey.
Speaking about her fortcoming album ‘This Secret’ Gráinne says “I’ve been working on these songs for ages, but it was only recently that I had time to record it!”. In a whirlwind Nashville session last October, she recorded eleven tracks in just under three days.“It just felt really easy,” she muses. “I’d never recorded like that before, but it was an incredible way to do it – and a lovely way to catch a snapshot of a moment in time.”
Grainne released her first solo release, ‘Firing Pin’, in 2015, which was followed by an album of Irish songs and ballads with award winning guitarist Brendan Walsh, called ‘Songs from Ireland’.
This is Gráinne’s first full length LP.
