Great review of “Affinity” Moya Brennan and Cormac de Barra release! @iahcchicago August 17th #irishmusic

MoyaCormac-147_highres

‘Affinity’ has a light yet zesty breeze running through it, the easy collaboration on full display between the two artists. Brennan, as usual, is in fine voice, and the trademark multi-layered effect you’ve grown to love with her work in Clannad is all throughout the album.”

Interesting article on “The Musical Evolution of Moya Brennan” at @iahcchicago Aug 17th! #irishmusic

“Brennan’s collaboration with De Barra is just one of many intriguing turns in her 40-year musical career. Looking back on her career, she said she has always craved challenging new creative opportunities.

“I’ve matured so much in the way I sing and the way I know I can carry my voice and use it to the best of its ability, and in the way I have shared musical spaces with so many different artists,” Brennan explained. “There’s so much great music out there—great genres, great young acts coming up. It’s great to brush up with them at festivals or in a session. You have to be open to creativity at all times. There’s so much to be had out there. I’m in the middle of so many different projects. That’s what I love about it. That’s what keeps me going.” From IrishPhiladelphia.com
