Powerful as ever, always a real treat to spend time with – Fuimadane’s work knows no limits, and this project in particular seems like a fully realized concept hard at work. Brilliant.
There are so many stories within this project – so many scenes and sounds and artistic conversations. Sometimes things feel classic and familiar, sometimes they feel completely out there and impossible to pigeon-hole.
“I love the melodies in traditional Celtic music. I love the dance feel that happens too, but what really drives me are those beautiful melodies. They’re happy and sad and hopeful, just like life.”
Celtic Purple brings together soulful performances with engaging melodies and an array of musically warm soundscapes, each with a fairly raw and intimate presentation style, giving off the sense that Cady and the band are playing right there in the room with you.
It’s incredibly powerful, and that traditional realness inherent in the set-up makes it connect all the more strongly – you feel that humanity and personal strength as the music surrounds you. Remarkable music.
If you see Nordic Daughter billed to perform somewhere near you in the coming months, don’t miss out. The Path is a phenomenal album, one for the long term playlist for sure.
The rise & fall of the progression, the movement through the notes, both string & wind, gives off a sense of waves lapping at the shore, or perhaps of a tired chest breathing slowly & deeply.
Tir Nan Og’s fifth studio album is an absolute blast. The project fuses the energy & confidence of punk with the raw creativity & hypnotism of Celtic folk. Captivating story telling & stunning musicianship.
A new listening experience, a new journey through the lyrics, a delicate & poetic perspective that floats alongside the piano & harp beautifully.
