“I couldn’t decide which was most compelling, Sinead Murphys voice or the depth and quality of her songs”- Irish Music Magazine
“She provides so much open space for the listener to soak up the sentiments relayed so vividly in the music. It has a contemporary feel but also on its high moments nods itself to the likes of Carole Kings “Tapestry”. REMY
Sinead is very lucky to have such incredible musicians on her original music. Sinead and her band have been in the studio since early 2019 recording her debut album which is set to be released in 2020.
