Dundalk, County Louth
Sophie Coyle is one of Irish music’s most exciting talents. Her hypnotic and haunting voice delivers dulcet tones through stories carved in her own lore, conjured by her own unique lyrical dynamism. Her songs are charmed with a rare and seductive magic. These dark enchantments that have seen her play support for a host of celebrated artists such as legendary Scottish folk singer Dick Gaughan, Mundy, John Spillane, Ger Wolfe, Luka Bloom and Gentry Morris. In 2010 her spine-tingling gothic-folk masterpiece, “Delirium” was used in the soundtrack to the horror film Spiderhole, which was released in Ireland and the UK in 2010 and in the USA in 2012. She lives in Dundalk with her husband Jinx Lennon and is currently recording her album for release in 2015. She is joined by fellow local musicians Conal McIntyre (Guitar & Keys) and Sean Bradley (Electric Bass & Guitar).
"Even when a murder ballad was introduced it didn't buck the trend or distort the flow. A natural talent and someone I wouldn't hesitate to recommend others to go and see," Libertine Bar Review, Ayr
