Bríd Lyons

Folk // Dublin // She/Her

Bríd Lyons is a Kilkenny born singer, songwriter and folk musician. Her acoustic sound is paired well with poetic lyrics that conjure images of nature and the human experience. Her work is influenced by artists such as Hozier, Lisa Hannigan, Saint Sister and Anna Mieke. Bríd’s sound is Celtic and ethereal, and features everything from soaring a capella vocals to rhythmically complex acoustic arrangements. In the past eighteen months, she has been selected as one of the KCLR representatives in the Hot Press Local Hero Talent Search and has played a number of prestigious gigs such as the Ruby Sessions and Whelan's Ones to Watch. Bríd has also supported Irish folk giants such as Lisa O’Neill, Rónán Ó’Snodaigh and Myles O’Reilly at the beautiful St. Canice’s Cathedral and also opened for Jerry Fish at Kilkenny Day 2021.

Bríd has been honing her craft as a composer and performer for the past 8 years, working both on her own and with other projects. Her single, 'October', which was released in late 2021, saw her delve fully into a solo venture. Bríd's second single, 'Mother', was released on November 10th 2022 and a gig was held in the famous Cobblestone venue to celebrate the launch. Mother was also awarded as The Circle Sessions Song Of The Year for 2022. 'I Must Go' was released on April 7th and was the third single from her debut EP, ‘Tied To The Turf’. Following the EP release on May 5th, Bríd embarked on a successful Irish co-headline tour with fellow songwriter, Luke Clerkin.
