AILSHA

Pop // Bray, Wicklow

AILSHA is an Irish composer, singer-songwriter, producer and musician from Co. Wicklow, Ireland. She has been listed as "Hot for 2021" and as one of the country's "Most Promising Acts" by Hot Press Magazine. She comes from a prolific musical family (her father, Shaun Davey (The Brendan Voyage), mother, Rita Connolly (Granuaile), and sister, Cathy Davey (The Nameless)).

Growing up, AILSHA's childhood was enchanted by fairytales and video games. At the age of eleven she began to compose video game-style soundtracks and taught herself to produce them using her father's software and equipment. In her teenage years she began to write songs about her life and established her rhapsodic, wry style- accompanied by music inspired by her fairytale and video game influences. AILSHA's signature style today has been described as 'candy-pop' and has been compared to the likes of MARINA and Lily Allen.

Recent shows include Hot Press Magazine's Y&E Series, a sold-out headline show by Ex-Oh Promotions in The Workman's Club, Transmission Live and Fluttertone's International Womens Day Livestream.

Her latest single, 'FBOY', sat at #1 in the Irish iTunes Charts on the day of its release and has been recognised internationally.
