Phoenix and Wolfe are a musical fusion of Irish and Brazilian mystique, wonder and sensuality. Amanda Shannon a native of Ennis and Cairo Rocha of Anápolis Brazil, have been cultivating their style over the last year and release their debut single the 26th April.
They are influenced by many but highlight Sinéad O Connor, Clannad, Mark Knopfler, Kiko Loreiro, Garry Moore and Nina Simone as their greatest musical heroes.
Creating music that is both explorative and evocative,they seduce their listeners from the start, leading them into another realm, marrying provocative lyrics with sophisticated melodies and arrangements. They move adeptly between acoustic and electric guitar with haunting vocals. Their sound develops in such a way as to wrap itself around you weaving a spell that stays with you long after the record has finished.
A very up and coming duo, definitely ones to watch for 2022.
"A sensual mixture of Irish soul and Brazilian heart. So beautiful and exotic. Amanda's warm voice and Cairo's distinctive guitar playing seduce the audience with every note. I was hooked from the minute I heard them." - Dora Gola
"Amanda and Cairo are two of the sweetest people and artists I've ever come across in all my time
producing music. Vulnerable, kind-hearted and brave I'm glad they are making art and putting it
into the world. We need more pure hearted music in this world and I am looking forward to all
they have to give us" - Enda Gallery
"Phoenix and Wolfe are a mesmerising duo. With luscious and beautiful vocal tones, alongside
gorgeous fingerstyle guitar. Melodies full of open hearted emotion. You can feel their connection
from the very first note" SAL
