Brigid Mae Power – ethereal Irish folk dreaminess
What you may need to know…
01. Over gentle waves of textures and reverberations comes the voice of singer/composer and visual artist Brigid Mae Power.
02. Having existed on the fringes of Irish folk for a number of years, she cut her teeth on her first full-length, I Told You The Truth, recorded in St. Nicholas’ Church in Galway. Leaving Ireland and heading to Oregon to record with American folk musician Peter Broderick in his studio proved to be a turning point.
03. Streaming above is the video for single I Left Myself For a While, from her self-titled “proper” debut record, available via Tompkins’ Square Records. Early solo work also available on her Bandcamp.
04. Headlining Quarter Block Party festival, on the weekend February 3rd-5th in Cork City Centre. More info here.
Thoughts: Some lovely moments amid the melancholy, resonating with subtle drone, and the atmosphere of the studio.
