Dublin, County Dublin
'An avant-garde blend of past, present, and future.'
"In a modern renaissance of sorts, Dublin/Galway based musician Maria Shiel who is also known as MS44 has intermingled a diverse selection of elements to administer a hypnotic dose of avant garde music. Her recent collaborations from ‘Dublin Home Sessions’ available on Soundcloud encompass earthy and folk influences from around the world combined with sprightly rock sounds, contemporary vibrations, electronic components, and entrancing vocals.
The collaborations are packed with surprising twists on otherwise traditional genres, revamping the styles with tech-savvy production and unconventional engineering. A zealous endeavor for almost any artist...this is the type of work that exemplifies the plight of an indie artist and their innate ability to tap into their innermost feelings and communicate them to the world through music."
