Dundalk, County Louth
Sophie Coyle 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 and the Drogheda Arts Festival. Originally from Galway, she now lives in Dundalk with her husband Jinx Lennon and two year old daughter Rose. Her debut album “Blame Me For The Storm” was released 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) and special guests Mark Corcoran and Fintan Lucy.
“Hopefully the first of many more albums to come from this promising Irish musical talent.”
