Ailbhe Reddy has been making huge waves in Ireland after releasing her debut EP ‘Hollowed Out Sea’ in 2016, this included her break out single ‘Distrust’ that has garnered critical acclaim and over 2 million streams on Spotify.
After appearing on RTÉ’s Other Voices season 15 her place in the Irish folk scene was firmly cemented and she went on to play sold out shows in Dublin, London and Toronto that same year. Since then she has released 4 singles and another EP. All have been well received by critics in Ireland, the UK and further afield. She has played major festivals like Glastonbury, Latitude, The Great Escape, Electric Picnic, Cambridge Folk Festival and Body & Soul (to name a few).
She is signed with London-based publishing label BDi Music and is currently writing and recording her debut album, due for release in autumn 2019.
