Brigid Mae Power

this extraordinary, reverberating album, so full of feeling” – Kitty Empire, The Guardian

"a dizzyingly isolated record, spare and serene music that gains momentum as it burrows deeper."- Pitchfork

“One of my favourite albums of 2016” – John Mulvey, Uncut

“This is an extraordinary album: exceedingly hypnotic and strongly individual, while at the same time intensely moving, elemental and powerful”folkradio.co.uk

In the intervening years since Brigid Mae Power last played a Dublin headline show she has carved out a deeply impressive international career, touring Europe, Japan & the US and signing to acclaimed US folk label Tompkins Square with whom she released her critically acclaimed and achingly beautiful self-titled LP. Her second album with the label The Two Worlds is due for release on February 9th and sees Brigid once again teaming up with the inimitable Peter Broderick on recording & co-production duties.

Brigid Mae Power is an Irish singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who, like Judie Sill, Micky Newbury or Linda Perhacs before her, paints her songs in dreamily expansive strokes, transporting earthly compositions into universal and exultant realms. Her self-titled debut on Tompkins Square is a majestic suite of reverb-swathed laments for voice, guitar, piano, accordion, and harmonium, recorded at the Portland studio of key musical foil Peter Broderick. Themes include transformation, change, motherhood, acceptance, strength, courage and trust. In the words of Power, the album is about “trusting if you lose yourself or your way — you can come back”

Ora Cogan

"Multi-instrumentalist Ora Cogan makes gorgeous experimental folk compositions laced with hints of psychedelia, chamber pop, and rock." - She Shreds

"Cogan can be strikingly sparse and overwhelmingly composed in the same sublime breath. She summons orchestral waves of violins and rolling psychedelic guitars, propelled forward by a voice that sweeps audiences away under a tsunami of blissful sonic complexity." - Sled Island Festival

"Ora Cogan draws from a wide web of influence, but - truly - she sounds like no other. "- CLASH

Ora Cogan has released seven albums to date and collaborated with a multitude of artists while touring extensively for over a decade. Her new album, Crickets, has married the intricate and atmospheric style this artist is known for with bold new arrangements that stretch out across many a sonic realm.

Crickets, by Ora Cogan
