Sarah Buckley

Alternative // Cork City, Cork // She/Her

A beguiling vocalist with a storytelling approach to songwriting, Sarah Buckley captured an immediate audience with the release of her debut EP ‘Magic Powers’. Support for the EP & it’s singles has come from the RTE Radio 1 playlist, Hot Press, Folk Radio UK, Spin FM etc and Sarah has been opening live for many of her peers including Mick Flannery, Gemma Hayes, Ham Sandwich, Niamh Regan, The Magpies etc as well as performing at Electric Picnic and Vantastival
Hailing from Cork and describing herself as an ‘indie folk singer songwriter’, Sarah has been recording over the last year with frequent collaborator Karl Odlum (David Kitt, Gemma Hayes). The results of this will be released as a second EP in the coming months. Balancing themes of nature & mysticism, with relatable and razor-sharp lyrics, these collections allow Sarah’s infectious and haunting vocal style to shine through.
A relative newcomer to playing & songwriting, Sarah’s story is not the often told tale of the 5 year old with a hairbrush for a mic and a lifelong dream. Music came later in Sarah’s life, and that subtle difference stands her apart from many of her fellow artists. This is an adventure undertaken by a woman who found her voice in life first, before bringing it to song.
