Sophie Coyle

Folk // Dundalk, Louth

After the launch of her critically acclaimed album “Blame Me for the Storm”, Sophie Coyle returns with a fresh new set of songs which chronicle a journey through South America. Coyle delivers stories carved in her own lore, conjured by her own unique lyrical dynamism. She fuses the laid-back west coast vibe of her native Galway with the sharply observational lyrical style of her current home in Dundalk, where she lives with her musician-husband Jinx Lennon and their two small kids. Her band members are fellow Dundalkers Caroline Whately (Bass, guitar, vocals), Sharon McArdle (piano, harp, accordian) and Conor Taaffe (Drums). Coyle was recently shortlisted for the 2019 International Songwriters Competition and long-listed for album of the year by the Choice Music Awards 2019.

“Hopefully the first of many more albums to come from this promising Irish musical talent.”
- Irish News (David Roy)

“A rich-layered CD, delightful on every level.” - Irish Music Magazine (Deirdre Cronin)

“Whether she’s conjuring up magic or brewing up something darker, Coyle’s voice and narrative takes charge on the assertive Blame Me for the Storm.” - Irish Times (Louise Bruton) 4 stars
