Ailbhe is releasing a new single, 'Distrust' on the 24th of February.
"Beautiful vocals, melodies, sentiments and lyrics make 'Dwell' and Ailbhe Reddy a must listen for fans of indie folk pop music." - Ceol Collective
Ailbhe was a new addition to the Irish music scene in early 2014 when she first attracted the attention of TodayFM, who featured her single ‘Cover Me’ in their 'Shave or Dye' advertising Campaign. That summer she performed at Knockanstockan and Spirit of Folk festivals. In winter of the same year she gained international praise when Folk Radio UK chose her song 'Flesh & Blood' as their Song of The Day. In December she released her debut, independently produced EP Dwell to positive reviews.
In 2015 Ailbhe had continued success, first performing on the main stage at Whelan's Ones to Watch, followed by Canalaphonic, Hard Working Class Heroes and Other Voices. In addition to this, she was nominated as one of Pure M Magazine's Best Female Solo Acts of the year.
Ailbhe began working on her second EP Hollowed Out Sea in late 2015 with producer Darragh Nolan in Asta Kalapa Studios. Her first single 'Distrust' will be released on February the 24th.
Reviews for 'Dwell'
"It is nearly impossible not to be taken with Reddy’s serene voice as she wistfully coos over a sea of voices and acoustic guitars."
- Molly Forsythe, GoldenPlec
"personal storytelling backed by warm, full-bodied production Reddy’s music is both promising and honest.”
- Stephen White, The Last Mixed Tape
"Reddy’s effortlessly delivered vocal spills through speakers, elongated vowel sounds adding emotive strength, yet introducing a decidedly melancholic tone, reinforced by wistful lyrics."
"Dwell is an intensely personal, carefully constructed collection of sweet songs, centred on fleeting love, lingering loss, the joy of unity and the tragedy of separation. Do yourself a favour and get a copy."
- Andy Guyett, Dublin Concerts
