Dundalk, County Louth
Sophie Coyle is a unique and honest talent. Her hypnotic voice effortlessly delivers stories carved in her own lore, conjured by her own unique lyrical dynamism. Her songs are charmed with a rare and seductive magic. These dark enchantments have seen her play support for a host of celebrated artists such as legendary Scottish folk singer Dick Gaughan, Mundy, John Spillane, Ger Wolfe, Luka Bloom and Gentry Morris. In 2010 her spine-tingling gothic-folk song, “Delirium” was used in the soundtrack to the Irish/ UK horror film Spiderhole. Among other festivals she has played the Electric Picnic, Vantastival, Feile na Bealtaine, Fiddler’s Green. She lives in Dundalk with her husband Jinx Lennon and one year old baby Rose and is releasing her new album in February 2018. For the launch tour she is joined by Dundalk friends Caroline Whately (Bass), Sharon McArdle (Keys, harp, accordian) and Conor Taaffe (Drums).
"Even when a murder ballad was introduced it didn't buck the trend or distort the flow. A natural talent and someone I wouldn't hesitate to recommend others to go and see," Libertine Bar Review, Ayr
