It will truly be a special one-off evening.
Irish singer-songwriter and gifted pianist, Blaithin Carney, writes lyrical, relatable indie-pop underpinned by powerful lyrics, emotional depth and classical influences. Perfectly treading the line between sincere balladry and indie sensibilities, Blaithin Carney weaves her distinctive vocals around the complexities of contemporary life issues through emotionally exposing lyrics. Over the last 18 months, Blaithin Carney has taken the Irish music scene by storm, with four Top 5 hits in the Irish singer-songwriter charts. Her debut single, Rome, entered at #1, knocking Ed Sheeran off the top spot.
“Cat’s voice is sublime. She can reach emotional depths and expression most of us can only dream of. We are blessed”. -Ger Mc Donnell
Cat Lundy, a 60’s, blues-inspired storyteller. With raw, unapologetic emotion, she delivers her truth. Her debut album 9 Lives is influenced by love, heartbreak and relationships. Cat finished recording her debut album with producer Ger Mc Donnell in 2018. Ger has worked with artists such as U2, Kasabian, The Cure and Martha Wainwright…to name a few.
“Cat controls each song from the start to finish. She is effortless and cool and knows how to lure her listeners in. You can hear a pin drop as she holds her audience spellbound.”
Our Cousin Paula:
As the youngest of six sisters growing up in suburban Dublin the vocal Our Cousin Paula had to work hard to be heard. When she did find a voice it was through words and music. The clarity and tone that she brought to her own songs like America Dreaming, Fire, Don’t Turn Around and many more startled and enchanted even veterans of the music industry, who thought they had heard it all before. Andrea Corr, of The Corrs, Bill Whelan of Riverdance and legendary producer David Foster (who has worked with singers like Celine Dion, Whitney Houston and Barbra Streisand) were among those impressed with the quality of her voice and the maturity of her thoughtful lyrics. Our Cousin Paula remains an enigma, a voice that defies categorisation and comes with a quiet intensity that has held audiences who heard it spell-bound.
