For the past wyvern lingodecade, Karen Cowley, Saoirse Duane and Caoimhe Barry, all multi-instrumentalists and acclaimed vocalists, have made names for themselves as being the “go-to” session musicians/vocalists in the country. Racking up credits with acts like Hozier, Zaska, Samuel Vas-Y and Trinity Orchestra, it’s hard to believe that this trio of musicians has an average age of just 22 years-old.

Despite stints with some of Ireland’s top acts, critics and fans agree that when Karen, Saoirse and Caoimhe are together, they are a musical force to be reckoned with. Proving that there is no substitute for experience, the band’s perfect synchronicity and angelic harmonies are a product of a long standing musical relationship which they have honed since their school days in Bray, Co Wicklow. Since those formative years, Wyvern Lingo have graduated to a new level of maturity in their song-writing and take inspiration from everything from Fleetwood Mac to Fugees.

Known for their soulful, passionate and haunting live show, they are one of the few bands that can get you dancing with a full band of keys, guitar, synth bass and drums – or make you melt when they strip the set back to a capella. While it’s hard to pin down these musicians to a single genre, their brand new EP is a veritable cocktail of R’n’B hooks, bluegrass licks, gospel harmonies and inciteful-beyond-their-years lyrics.

After two solid years of writing, recording, performing (Groove Festival, KnockanStockan, Electric Picnic) and making plenty of mistakes along the way, Wyvern Lingo have released ‘The Widow Knows EP’ which will be followed by their first music video in September 2014.

The Widow Knows EP is available to purchase through iTunes and Bandcamp
