a project by:
Hi there, my name is Aoife Scott and I am a folk-singer and songwriter. I am incredibly lucky to come from a family of singers, and my childhood was spent listening, learning and being inspired. My whole life has been lit up by music. Songs are stories, be it of love, loss, discovery or passion. A singer’s job is to touch the listener’s heart, to become a part of their soundtrack, to reflect the times we live in and to inspire change. I want to make an album that does just that.
Myself and my band have been performing together for the past three years in Ireland, England and abroad - The line up includes Eoghan Scott (guitar) and Conor Lyons (bouzouki/bodhran). Recent adventures have taken us to London, where we competed against over 1000 acts to win a support slot for Bob Dylan and Van Morrison. We've also been in Italy to represent Ireland in an international song contest, and we've been featured on a compilation CD alongside Leonard Cohen, Bonnie Raitt, Emmy-Lou Harris, John Prine & many others. We've had a busy few years!
This is why I have a Fund it campaign.
I am SO primed to make this album. I have been writing and collecting songs and gigging continuously over the past few years, in Ireland and abroad, as well as recording pieces for documentaries and a drama series, but it didn’t yet feel like it was the right time to record my own album. However, the last six months have been an incredibly creative and productive time for me and my band and now the time has come.
This project is about recording who I am, what I am and what I feel life is about. It’s about who we are as a people and where we might be headed. I want to make this mark, to say this is what we are at this moment in time. This is how we tell stories. This is folk music; music of the people.
When I first started singing on stage and putting myself out there, I realised that this is what I truly love to do. I had to leave my nerves behind and really acknowledge my passion. I love to sing and to perform and to connect with people through song. If I can reach a person in an audience and it connects with them in any kind of emotional way, I know that I’m doing my job. I believe I can do that with this album.
With your support I’ll power through the making of the album. It would be amazing if you could be included in the process. The costs include recording, engineering, mixing and mastering, album duplication and artwork. There is a wide range of rewards and your help will totally enable us to fulfill our aspirations!
I really appreciate any support and thank you for getting involved in this project - exciting times are in store!
Thank you for reading, listening and supporting.
