About Aoife and New Album
Hi Everybody, I'm a folk singer songwriter and I'm about to embark on the journey of recording my second album. Since making my first album I have literally been on the road, gigging all over the world - from France to Fiji, and It has been the most incredible journey. I'm really excited and so grateful to be here and ready to record.
This new album is one that has been developing for the past 3 years while we have been touring with my first album "Carry The Day". We've been collecting songs/writing songs/collecting ideas and I'm really excited to be able to go in to the studio to record now.
The first album took a long time to make, and I learned so much from the process.
Also I learnt so much from crowdfunding the album, and how crowdfunding can help with everyone getting involved from the very beginning.
This time around I feel a bit stronger, a bit braver, and very grateful for where I am today.

What I've been doing since the release of the 1st Album - Carry The Day
The past 3 years I've spent on the road with Andy Meaney, my partner, touring the album "Carry the Day" with the lovely lads in my band. We have been very lucky. We've toured Ireland, Scotland, England, Germany, France, Italy, Belgium, Austria, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Denmark, The Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, and driven the whole width of United States on a nationwide tour. Myself and Andy have been writing songs, collecting songs all along the way. I've also been writing with Enda Reilly again (Co-writer of songs on "Carry the Day"). This time we've gotten the chance to work with Ron Block of Union Station (Alison Krauss) and we can't wait to start work with him.

Crowdfunding - How you can help
Crowdfunding has been a major part of my life since I started on my music career. Involving everybody is the best part of making an album! Sharing the time and ideas from day one.
The money funded will be spent on the recording/producing/mixing/mastering and duplication for the project. Any extra funds will be used for promotional purposes and publicity. The album will be released in Autumn/Winter 2019. With album launches and Album Launch tour to come with it.
