Saibh, who turned 18 last month, is the youngest Irish artist to debut in the Top 10 of the Official Irish Album Chart since Cavan lads The Strypes almost ten years ago. The 5-track EP format, on which Saibh puts her own personal spin on songs which helped her and her friends through lockdown, is eligible for the Album Chart. It’s the highest EP debut ever by an Irish teenager, and the most successful since Wild Youth’s lead-off EP in 2019.
Hailing from Walkinstown in Dublin, Saibh has been building a fanbase since she started playing on Grafton Street three years ago. In addition, she has developed a large following on YouTube and Instagram with her online videos and sessions, which grew impressively during the 2020/21 lockdown, and continues to do so.
Since releasing her debut single for Rubyworks - “Come Here And Leave Me Alone” - in autumn 2021, Saibh’s videos for her official singles so far have racked up an impressive 250,000 views on YouTube. Her combined YouTube views now surpass 6 million views total. Furthermore, Saibh is making waves in the world of streaming, a combination of officially curated playlists coupled with fan-curated, word-of-mouth playlists adding up to an impressive 1.5 million listeners to date. In the last month alone, Saibh’s listenership on streaming services has more than doubled, highlighting the exponential growth of this hardworking Dublin musician.
