“SONG FOR EWE”
with ÁINE CAHILL
“SONG FOR EWE” is the feature where artists & music people beloved by VELVET SHEEP choose an obscure song they’ve been listening to that day. Today’s guest is a singer-songwriter from County Cavan, Ireland who while playing her debut Glastonbury appearance in 2016 was spotted by the BBC and asked to play acoustic during their backstage coverage. Still only 23, she’s played a ton of gigs, ranging from a packed out St. Pancras Church to aforementioned Glasto, Latitude, Field Day, Great Escape, a sold out Irish tour and an October tour supporting JP Cooper. She’s already had the singles “Plastic” and “Huge Dahlia” this year and has just released the thunderous new one “Blood Diamonds” featuring Courage. Her voice has a fantastic timbre and smoky jazz style, with dark-edged lyrics and backed with broad Portishead style beats, it’s a classy combo, so we’re pleased to introduce to Velvet Sheep, Áine Cahill!
Áine plays one final headline show of 2017 at Hoxton Bar & Kitchen as part of The Great Escape Festival’s ‘First Fifty’ gig series in November, followed by two rescheduled dates with JP Cooper:
November Weds 22nd LONDON, Hoxton Bar & Kitchen (Headline Show)
Weds 29th DUBLIN, Olympia Theatre (with JP Cooper)
December Fri 8th BIRMINGHAM, O2 Institute (with JP Cooper)
but, what does she choose as her “song for ewe”…without further ado..
“Hvmmingbyrd – Gozo
I met one of the girls from Hvmmingbyrd at one of my gigs. They released a single called ‘If Love Was Enough’ which is another one I love! This is their latest release, I just think it’s beautiful! I love harmonies and their sound is on point. Really chill and full of atmosphere! I really recommend their EP!
CHEERS TO ÁINE AND TO ASHLEY & HENRY AT MBC PR
