SINEAD WHITE

plus guest

Sinéad White is a singer/songwriter/human being/Multi-instrumentalist who is at the borderline of stardom.

—-

Sinead’s fresh approach to songwriting is captivatingly charming and uniquely powerful, while she manages to hold the energy candle on both ends of the stick, she then balances on her head, floor stomping tunes that leave you in awe. She carries in her made up case – an amazing guitar style – interesting, profound and intelligent lyrics, all wheeled in by a dynamic voice that is as dramatic as it is haunting.

This is Sinead’s first real headline show – bringing everything and the living room – 2 Vocals,1 percussion, 100 kazoos, 1 double bass, many horns, synth, keys, drums and anything else she feels the conceptual show needs. Fully scored of course.

Her musical career started at the age of 7 when she started learning to play the piano. Her love of the piano spanned long into her teens, and with incessant practice managed to make her family hate every Elton John, Queen and John Lennon song known to man.

At that point, after getting a loan of a classical guitar she taught herself a few chords and began writing her own songs. Throughout her teens she was involved in various bands and wrote a lot of terrible music. She went to college to study classical music but after a year decided to drop out to try to pursue a career as a singer/songwriter. That was last year.

Since then she’s played all over Dublin, various spots around Ireland, Europe and Toronto, Canada. She’s been on RTE multiple times*, FM104, played festivals Longitude and a was favourite at the Electric Picnic last summer.

She has just finished recording her first album and is set to release it in the coming months.

What other people say:

“Sinead White has so much talent – we honestly can’t understand how she is not already a household name in Ireland. It can only be a matter of time. Seriously. This young lady can really sing and really play… and she writes great songs too. If we could buy shares in her – we would. It can only be a matter of time before Other Voices and Later… with Jools Holland come calling. Sinead is currently in the process of recording her first EP – and she plans to record her debut album later in 2013. Catch her live at the Storehouse on July 20th. You’ll thank us on the way home. We promise.”

“Flat Battery” by Sinead White is a seriously catchy acoustic led number which show off Sinead’s interesting voice. Sinead has a clever way with lyrics and the playing is top notch here, with a satisfyingly chunky bass line during the chorus, before the acoustic guitar sees us out.”
