We’re delighted to be working with Saint Sister for the first time.
Saint Sister, formed in November 2014, is the new project from Morgan MacIntyre and Gemma Doherty. Their music draws from early Celtic harp traditions, 60s folk and electronic pop to create ‘atmosfolk’ – a mix of soulful vocal harmonies, dreamy synth and electro-acoustic harp.
Following their debut performance on Irish television, they opened for Arcade Fire’s Will Butler in Whelan’s. April saw them support San Fermin, and tour Ireland with Dublin band Spies. In August, the band entered the studio for the first time to record their debut EP with Alex Ryan (bassist with Hozier), which was released on 13 November on Trout Records.
Over the coming weeks they commence two Irish tours with O Emperor and Wyvern Lingo. They finish 2015 with their first London showcase, and play their first US performance at SXSW 2016.
‘Bewitching, that’s Saint Sister. It’s a striking, at times quite intense piece of work; it unfolds patiently, with a rare sense of grace’ – Clash Magazine
Tour support comes from Rosie Carney. Rosie is a 20-year-old singer/songwriter, originally from Hampshire, and currently based in Downings, County Donegal. She has already been compared to the likes of Joni Mitchell, and Crack In The Road described her music as ‘heart-wrenchingly beautiful’.
