Nuala Dalton & Band
'a voice that can be unbelievably angelic one second and tinged with a hint of serial-killer seriousness the next' The Crack Magazine
Irish Album Launch - The Set Theatre Kilkenny, Saturday October 15th
Nuala Dalton is a singer and instrumentalist who performs both solo and with band.
Sometimes solo..sometimes four piece, sometimes five..
Her recently released debut album 'Breaking the Spell' on the 'Wild Wish Music' label is starting to be heard across the airwaves. Featured on RTE 2xm 'Sweet Oblivion' show presented by Aoife Barry, BBC Tees, NCCR, Brfm, BBC Newcastle. Reviewers include The Musicians Union Magazine, Living North Magazine, The Journal, The Crack.. She played an acoustic set at the Belfast Songwriters Festival 2011.
Her interests lie in making music from the inside out, with a preference for raw vocals and not too much production on the recorded sound, the goal is capturing and conveying emotion, and arranging songs spontaneously rather than to a preconceived plan. On this her first release she composed, arranged all the material, as well as co-producing the sound with the studio engineer. Coming from a background as a traditional Irish flute player and singer, she continues to explore flute playing through performing with the Newcastle Flamenco Collective.
"This lady could easily click if the right radio presenter picks up on one of her songs" Joe Giltrap, The Irish Post
"Should prove a big hit with the Indie/student crowd and those mature fans who like their music, pointed, challenging and emotional" The Musicians Union Magazine
"Comparisons are futile – her sound is both familiar and strange. …. Challenging and compelling, if Breaking the Spell doesn’t enchant you on the first listen, make sure you play it again." Living North Magazine March 2010
