'Originally from Seoul and Waterford, Dublin-based duo Yellowbridge have the potential to wow folks, thanks to a combination of Ciara Donnelly’s powerful, distinctive vocals and neat, nimble pop hooks and subtle musical suss from producer Kyle Hyunsing Kim.' Jim Carroll, The Irish Times
As “Cruising” comes into play the powerful voice of lead singer CIARA DONNELLY wows. The composure in the opening is effective, but this is the moment that takes you by surprise. The delightful way that it is delivered narrows the sound down.

... “reminiscent to that of Adele to songs such as ‘Windy City’, ‘Voodoo’ and new single ‘Circus’ the indie folk band might be a world of music away to what these punters have expected to hear tonight but it seems to go down extremely well as a roar of applause fills the tiny venue as Yellowbridge draw their set to a close”

“The beautiful Irish lilt in Ciara Donnelly, aka Yellow Bridge’s, vocals hits you hard. Not only is she a great singer but her vocals are honest, and true to her Waterford, Ireland, roots. She works with a variety of producers and other musicians and is a fairly new artist on the scene, spending some of her time writing tracks for others and even radio jingles. Her submitted track Circus has proved a perfect showcase of her and she’s certainly impressed us with her superb voice.”

Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition Latest: Bands That Have Impressed Us So Far Pt 2.
'A good start to the day here in our office when this is the first band on the list that we are checking out. This is a duo currently playing on the Irish music scene who have been steadily building their reputation through some hard graft. Musically though there is a lot at the core too that marks them out musically.
There is a lush quality to their songs that carries across too which also elevates them to a deserved status as one of those bands to keep an eye out for in the future.' twenty1zero
'Dublin-duo Yellowbridge love songs beginning with ‘C’. So far, they’ve had ‘Circus’, ‘Close’, ‘Capital J’, and now ‘Cruising’. VWaterford’s Ciara Donnelly will drag you in with her Newsomesque vocals, before Seoul’s Kyle Hyunsing Kim’s wonderful production takes over. The pair work splendidly together, and could be one to keep an eye on.'- swwearimnotpaul.com
