Independent Irish singer and guitarist Síomha (pronounced She-vah) dances the line between folk,

jazz and neo-soul effortlessly taking audiences on an unexpected and unforgettable journey with her

soulful melodies. Her debut album ‘Infinite Space’ - described by The Irish Times as “a seriously

accomplished and self-confident debut” - is a collection of songs in both Irish and English. A kind of

cosmic, folk-informed, jazz-tinged, post-pop - it was produced by GRAMMY-nominated Tyler Duncan

and features an all-star lineup of musicians including Joe Dart (Vulfpeck), Louis Cato (Bobby

McFerrin/ Snarky Puppy), Martin Atkinson Borrull (Toucan) and violinist Jeremy Kittel (Bela Fleck/

Chris Thile). Síomha’s voice is full of raw heart-felt experience. When listening to her, audiences are

instantly moved to feel on the deepest level and come out more intimately connected to their own


Coming from a family steeped in music, Síomha grew up on a diet of musical greats with the sounds

of jazz, trad, folk and soul creeping in and leaving an indelible mark on her musical tastes and

influences. She started playing guitar at age 10 but it was later in her teens while attending high

school in the south of France that she first took up jazz guitar after a chance encounter led to her

learning from an Italian gypsy who taught her the manouche gypsy jazz style. The chords and sounds

of jazz fascinated and inspired Síomha and she began to craft her own songs.

The next few years saw her traveling, with music as her compass, soaking up the sounds of each of

the places she traveled and further honing her craft. In late 2016, having traversed America, Canada

and Mexico, she felt an innate draw to return to home shores and a phenomenal few years have

followed. Síomha toured with Paul Brady, Wyvern Lingo, Moxie, Joey Dosik (Vulfpeck), Notify and has

performed at festivals such as Electric Picnic, Celtic Connections (Glasgow) and Fête de la Musique

at Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris. In 2018, she was invited to tour with celebrated contemporary

American-Irish group the olllam and instantly formed a bond with founding member Tyler Duncan. In

2019, Síomha and her long term creative collaborator Martin Atkinson began recording her debut

album in Michigan, USA with Tyler as producer.

Síomha is an artist full of heart and her music truly does defy any conventional genres. The influences

of her musical background, her travels and musical explorations are audible in the music she creates.

Always proud of her Irish heritage, she performs her songs in both the English and Irish languages.

The beautiful landscape and rugged nature of her native West of Ireland are a huge source of

inspiration for this proud Co. Clare artist leading her to create a soulful and unique style of music that

enthralls anyone who hears it.
