Dublin musician Ailbhe Reddy is a singer-songwriter whose deeply personal heart-on-her-sleeve lyrics and a memorable voice lingers with you long after your first taste” (Record of the Day, UK). She first began to attract attention when a homemade demo of her song ‘Cover Me’ was used in a Today FM radio advert in 2014. Later that year her first single, ‘Flesh & Blood’ garnered excellent reviews from Irish blogs, and was featured as Song of the day on the UK blog Folk Radio UK. Reddy has gone on to feature on every major Irish festival line up, such as Electric Picnic, Body & Soul, Other Voices, Hard Working Class Heroes, Knockanstockan and Spirit of Folk.

Since the independent release of Reddy’s hugely successful debut EP ‘HOLLOWED OUT SEA’, it has received excellent reviews and extensive radio play on TXFM, Today FM, 98FM and Dublin City FM. It has also been streamed over 1 MILLION times on Spotify.

The first single, ‘DISTRUST’ received glowing reviews and lead to Ailbhe being named as Artist of the Week in The Irish Times. Influential UK industry newsletter Record of the Day recently featured the song stating ‘prepare to be floored….it’s wonderful’.
Ailbhe is tipped for a major international breakthrough in 2017. Her first offering this year was her single ‘RELENT’ which was premiered on Nialler9 as part of his ‘New Artists to Love in 2017’ feature. It was Track of the Week in the Irish Times, part of Spotify UK’s New Music Friday and was featured on blogs around the world including Earmilk in New York, The Revue in the UK and many more.

“Ailbhe Reddy has found fans wherever she has gone – whether its at festivals like Electric Picnic, Other Voices and Body & Soul among them.” – Nialler9
“With some low-key Lianne La Havas vibes, Ailbhe Reddy is right up our street.” – The Irish Times
