Jamie D'Arcy

Folk // Newbridge, Kildare // he/him

On the banks of the River Liffey, just outside of Newbridge Co. Kildare, Jamie D’Arcy constructs his musical world. Having been inspired by artists like Ben Howard, Adrianne Lenker, Julia Jacklin and David Kitt , this world is rooted in folk music but often grows into lush electronic textures that surround his voice. His interest in combining simple acoustic sounds with tasteful electronic elements and his willingness to experiment are what make Jamie’s music more than just a man and his guitar. The stories in his lyrics deal with loss and explore contemporary life for a young person in Ireland.

His debut EP, ‘Learning to Live (Part 1)’, as well as his forthcoming follow up EP 'Learning To Live (Part II)' examine new-found love and a journey of personal growth after loss and heartbreak. Finding yourself after losing someone else is a common subject in music but Jamie brings something new, both in sound and in sentiment, with his distinct voice.
