Whelan’s Main Venue
“Maker of classic, soul-infused song craft” – Nialler9
“Bringing a fresh perspective, passion and an incredible voice, she is set to be one of the biggest up and comers in the local scene”- Hotpress Magazine
“Blyth’s lush jazz-pop sound is led by her honest, emotive vocals.” – Earmilk
“Ellen Arthur Blyth’s music comes from real, painful lived experience” – Notion
Dublin-based singer songwriter Ellen Arthur Blyth has recently unveiled her long-awaited debut album ‘Nine’. The unique dreamy jazz-pop sound includes the release of the single ‘Young Ones,’ title track ‘Nine’ and the epic ballad ‘God Knows” all of which earned Ellen support from Lyric FM as “Marty Recommends album of the week” and acclaim from publications such as Notion, Earmilk, Hotpress and Nialler9.
Recorded in Hell Fire Studios, Dublin and produced by Alex Borwick, head engineer of the famed Grouse Lodge Studios, the impressive sound walks a tightrope of consonance and dissonance, nostalgia and joy, resulting in a finely poised drama of soft, lilting melody and haunting wistfulness. The vocal, at once resonant, is at times achingly honest and captivates from beginning to end. With the plethora of talent behind it, ‘Nine’ does not sing like the debut album it is, but instead stands as an accomplished piece, unapologetic, stylish, and yet encapsulating the fears and aspirations of a nine-year old girl tottering about in her sister’s high heels, belting out numbers into her hair brush.
