Irish singer-songwriter Brigid Mae Power returns with a new song ‘Counting Down’ and news of a new album Dream From The Deep Well, set for release on 30th June on Fire Records.

The song ‘Counting Down’ “explores those beautiful short-lived connections and moments you make on the road before having to move onto the next town.”

“Counting Down’ is a simple song about the ups and downs of music and touring. It reflects on feeling homesick and the frustration from meeting great people on the road and then leaving them, almost immediately, as the next town beckons. It’s also about realising that performing is a great privilege, it’s just a hard and strange way of life, but ultimately the only one I can really do.

Recognised as a purveyor of dreamier pop with folky leanings, new album, Dream From The Deep Well, is a departure; a unique marriage of traditional stylings and very modern melodies; a breath-taking soundtrack which underpins her gorgeous vocal. In these ever-confusing and often annoying times, Brigid brings us modern folk for modern folk, with her evocative vocal, doubling back on itself with strings, steel guitar, horns and mellotron adding to its baroque loveliness. Filled with personal tales of offspring and grandparents, the lovelorn and the lost, it’s the essence of re- imagined folk music. It waves back at her rootsy past, daubing new colours on a much-loved canvas. It’s a new visionary beginning from a gifted songwriter. Dream From The Deep Well is politically primed and socially aware; a broadside for us all, this is Brigid Mae Power’s most complete album yet.
