I think I’m becoming a broken record, for those of you who can remember what a record is, that is. I recieved a video in my comment section with new Irish voices singing an old Irish Folk song, which is why I love having this blog don’t you know. Polly Vaughn is the song and surprisingly is about the tragic accidental shooting of Polly Vaughn or Molly Vaughn, the true love of the shooter, I know how shocking that a traditional Irish folk song can be about such a tragic event. The singer on the video is called “Sive” but I kinda like her given name of Sadhbh O’Sullivan, and she has a haunting beautiful voice, I wished she focused on Trad or Seanos because she would be absolutely brilliant at it. The Pandy corporation (the instrumental to the video) experiments musically kinda of the next Alan Parsons which is great if you are into the electro vibe shake and jiggle sort of thing. Give her a look/listen.
So as is my way, a little googling and seems as miss O’Sullivan is quite accomplished and quite at the start of the musical journey. What I found reveals a beautiful voice with a jazz feel and a natural soul, ready to take on the world, the next new Irish star.
It does my heart good to see/hear the next wave attacking the music world, and I’m sure ending up on top.
The other nice thing about checking out new personas is they always have friends who are remarkably talented. In this case Janet Grogan another Dublin native.
watch out world WOW, my only regret is that the main stream music world will end up with these two new Irish voices, my hope is that after they conquer the world they may throw a good Irish folk song in.
The songs and videos do more justice to their talent than this humble blogger could ever do, so if you happen to see a marquee with the names O’Sullvan and Grogan, or Sive and Grogan, at some small club or pub somewhere go in and see the next big thing, while they are still undiscovered.
