“SÍOMHA was my guest on my 2017 Irish Tour. She is a consummate singer, songwriter and guitarist. My audience loved her performance every night as did I and my band. Go see her!” Paul Brady

Irish singer and guitarist Síomha (pronounced Shee-vah) dances the line between folk, jazz and neo-soul effortlessly taking audiences on an unexpected and unforgettable journey with her soulful melodies. Síomha recently shared a new single ‘Spéir Rua’ (Red Sky), giving us first glimpse into the ethereal newness and musical mastery of her new album ‘Infinite Space’ which is due for release in 2022.

“Spéir Rua is one of my favorite tracks from my upcoming album. It’s exciting, mellow and sexy all at once. The sound is smooth, warm, energetic and life giving, just like a sunrise”.

The track begins with the cool sultriness of night and explodes with the fiery colours of a morning sky. The landscape of the song is painted by breath-taking strings, worlds of percussion, rich choral arrangements and a rhythm section rooted in groove.

‘Spéir Rua’ was translated into Irish by Billy MagFhloinn. It was recorded in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and produced by Grammy nominated Tyler Duncan (Carly Rae Jepsen/ Theo Katzman/ The Olllam). It features an all-star line-up of musicians including Joe Dart (Vulfpeck), Martin Atkinson, Michael Shimmin (the ollam), Louis Cato (Bobby McFerrin/ Snarky Puppy) and violinist Jeremy Kittel (Bela Fleck/ Chris Thile).

This unique union of Irish lyrics soaring over a backdrop of music rooted in jazz and soul is like nothing you’ve ever heard before. See Síomha close out her Infinite Space Tour at Whelan’s, Dublin, this Sunday 28th November. Tickets from www.siomhamusic.com/tour
