Dublin musician Ailbhe Reddy is a singer-songwriter whose deeply personal heart-on-her-sleeve lyrics and a memorable voice lingers with you long after your first taste
She first began to attract attention when a homemade demo of her song ‘Cover Me’ was used in a Today FM radio advert in 2014. Later that year her first single, ‘Flesh & Blood’ garnered excellent reviews from Irish blogs, and was featured as Song of the day on the UK blog Folk Radio UK. Reddy has gone on to feature on every major festival line up in the UK and Ireland, such as Glastonbury, Latitude, The Great Escape, Electric Picnic and Body & Soul. Ailbhe tipped for a major international breakthrough in 2017, her first offering this year was her single 'RELENT' which was premiered on Nialler9 as part of his 'New Artists to Love in 2017' feature. It was Track of the Week in the Irish Times, part of Spotify UK's New Music Friday, For Folk's Sake's Song of the Week and was featured on various other blogs around the world. Having won the public vote for the IMRO Other Room in Dingle last year, Ailbhe joins us again on the Other Voices stage at this year's Electric Picnic.
