Sive is a songwriter, singer and multi-instrumentalist with a voice that “sweeps along displaying folk and jazz influences with the confidence of one who knows” (Eamonn Carr). Her unique sound weaves together her love for the craft of songwriting with her enthusiasm for experimentation and intricate arrangements.
Sive released her debut album to critical acclaim in 2012 and since then has toured extensively across Ireland, The UK, Europe and New Zealand, sharing stages with the likes of Kila, Mick Flannery, John Spillane and Gemma Hayes along the way. She was voted viewer's choice to appear on RTE's Other Voices in 2014 and has also performed on TG4's Róisín, TV3's Ireland AM, ARTE's Metropolis (Germany/France) and ETV's Terevision (Estonia).
In 2016, Sive ran a successful crowdfunding campaign to complete her second studio album THE ROARING GIRL which will be released on the 1st of May. The first single to be taken from the album, Hoverfly, was recently shortlisted for Song of the Year and Video of the Year at the Nós Music Magazine awards 2017.
