Breda Mayock announces her new EP titled Waves.
Waves is a collection of four songs that originated during the lockdown in 2020. Mayock’s background is in traditional and folk music, and over the years she has been influenced by many other genres. Her more recent work transverses indie folk sounds and moves into more abstract soundscapes.

Steve Cooney, Robbie Harris and Mayock got together back in 2020 in between lockdowns. They played the songs and recorded ideas and sounds and discussed instrumentation.
Over the coming months recordings and conversations were exchanged, the songs were transported from Mayo to Donegal and back again and then to Dublin where they were mixed by Mark Murphy at Secrets And Machines.

Throughout her career Mayock’s experience includes studies in fine art, and her early musical adventures saw her explore the French world music scene with producer Hector Zazou in Real World Studios where she recorded with Peter Gabriel. She worked with Hughes De Courson‘s fusion of Baroque and Irish music – O’Stravaganza and with Breton harpist Alan Stivell’s album 1 Douar.
Waves follows her previous album Learning Place released in 2017 and her self titled album released in 2015 which also featured guitarist Steve Cooney and percussionist Robbie Harris.
