She’s embarking on an ambitious solo career, combining her

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

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
