“I didn't know where else to go, I needed to feel my pulse again,” says Irish born singer songwriter Aine Tyrrell on the question of why would you record your album outdoors under the stars, and in abandoned mines in the Australian outback.
Áine took the pieces of her life and songs into the desert on a quest for musical and spiritual self discovery, and from this one seed of temerity, a desert rose grew. This entire experience was captured by a documentary maker's lens and a producer's microphones, the fruits of which are to be shared with the world beginning February 2015.
Áine's music cradles the spirit of her native homeland, and tips the cap to a notable family history of Irish music tradition. Ache, honesty, and elated melodies, garnishing rhythms which a thousand years of ancestry have slammed foot to floor boards to, in both celebration and protest.
Australia's historical lineage, and love of all things Irish, stands as testament to the accolades and support she is now garnering here in her new homeland, having procured the honour of Queenscliff Music festivals 'Emerging Talent 2014' mantle, along with receiving the invaluable and ongoing mentorship from our own revered songstress, Clare Bowditch.
Áine's journey has only just begun as this unique talent continues to infiltrate the hearts and minds of music lovers everywhere.
Áine Tyrrell's music is a contemporary folk collision between the Ireland of generations gone, and the hope of tomorrow. Her songs are as honest as an old friend, warm and inviting, managing somehow to fuse melodies over rhythms which transport you directly into the mid 19th century, to a land hardened by atrocity, which the rest of the world had temporarily forgotten. She is a singer songwriter with a sound that transcends the convention the title suggests, at times anything from tribal to fragile; her music evades simple platitudes.
