After unveiling her much anticipated debut EP 'Being' in October 2020, Tolü Makay has continued to blossom since emerging with her 2018 single “Goodbye” – now with over 1 million streams. A seasoned vocalist with influences that span the likes of Erykah Badu and Nina Simone to Amy Winehouse and Asa, Tolü’s trajectory into music seemed already predestined.
Her cover version of The Saw Doctors 30-year-old classic “N17” along with The RTE Concert Orchestra, performed on national TV at RTÉ’s NYE show last year, charted No. 1 on Irish Airplay and iTunes charts in its first week of release. Tolü Makay showed no signs of slowing down and kept releasing singles such as ‘Used To Be’ and her most recent collaboration ‘The Light’ with Irish rapper Malaki.
Tolü Makay has become one of Irelands most up-and-coming performing artist this year having played at RTÉ’s ‘The Heart of Saturday Night’ and Other Voices Galway International Arts Festival.
For her first Ireland tour Tolü Makay has sold out shows in Dublin, Cork and Galway and was awarded ‘Woman of the Year’ by Irish Tatler Magazine.
The up-and-coming Irish artist performed at the 20-years Other Voices in Kerry, Ireland.
