"Sometimes you are lucky enough to hear music that’s so beautiful, yet so gut-wrenching, that it kicks you in the heart with a firm thump. While you’re reeling from the shock, you try to explain to yourself – to others – why you’re happy to take the hit. But it’s too hard to put it into words.
Aaron Coyne, aka Yawning Chasm, does this to people, with his yearning folk that both defies and celebrates that specific genre. From the West of Ireland, his music feels as welcoming as a walk along Salthill promenade or a night spent staring at the stars by the Spanish Arch.
He is utterly connected with the Irish landscape - nature creeps into his words, with bleached bones and trembling stars colliding and tumbling rivers bursting as he sings. It’s somewhat ironic that such a softly spoken man inspires such hyperbole, but then that’s the effect that Yawning Chasm has.
This music is intimate and stirring, unassuming and lo-fi. It’s folk, but, like the keyboard lines that often skitter alongside Coyne’s deftly-strummed guitar passages, so much more." -Aoife Barry http://aoifebarry.com/

"Armed with a 12 string guitar and a most languid, earthy voice, Brigid soars high before shooting you square in the loneliest part of your heart. Watching her perform is a rare treat, a true no-bones performer with the ability to draw an audience in naturally with no more than a humble eyes-on-the-floor presence and a voice that roots you to the spot. Her aching highs and low moans will have you rapt. For fans of Tim Buckley, Margaret Barry and Ma Rainey." - Vicky Langan, Black Sun

Gavin is known to some as a member of United Bible Studies. He currently plays in Toymonger and is working on the debut album of his newest band Sabre Series.
