Loah is Sallay Matu Garnett, an artist of Irish / Sierra Leonean origin who grew up between Maynooth and West Africa.

She’s embarking on an ambitious solo career, combining her unique blend of genre-bending Afro-soul which she calls “ArtSoul.” She has released several stunning singles/videos (“The Bailey”, “Cortege”, and “Take It” with Irish producer Bantum) followed by her debut EP “This Heart in summer.”

She’s sold out numerous headline shows in Dublin and abroad, appeared at Electric Picnic, Body&Soul, Longitude, Cork Jazz Festival, Sounds From A Safe Harbour, and the Dublin Fringe Festival, the CCI in Paris, and performed with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra and Glen Hansard in the National Concert Hall, Dublin Castle, and Vicar Street. She has also collaborated with Hozier, Villagers, and Bantum, amongst others.

Having just made her first US appearances at SXSW and New York in spring, she released “This Heart” along with a string of high-profile festival appearances, followed by an Irish and UK tour in winter. 2018 sees her kick off the year in the Barbican Centre, London for the Imagining Ireland series.
