Sarah-Beth is a 23-year-old singer-songwriter based in Cork, Ireland. She formed an alternative pop band called Luunah with her peers - Paul Brennan (drums), Lee Kennedy (bass), Emily Naughton (synth) and James Gormley (guitar) in music college. Their 10-track debut album will be released this Halloween.
Sarah-Beth's lyrics derive from personal experience, relationships and societal observations. Words are placed at the heart of every song with her aim being to convey gripping stories and paint vibrant pictures in the mind of the listener.
Sarah-Beth is also currently studying for a Master's degree in Music at the Cork School of Music and working on her second solo EP Take Me Dancing which is set to be released in early 2021.
We Sent Shane J. Horan to for a socially distant photo shoot with Sarah Beth and while he was there he got the lowdown on the tracks that are keeping her sane in these crazy days.
Biig Piig - Don't Turn Around
It was definitely a case of 'love at first listen' with Biig Piig - this girl has found a place for old school hip hop in a modern world. Her lastest single Don't Turn Around is well worth a listen.
Happyalone. - Silk
These guys are really pushing futuristic boundaries and very well represent the alternative Irish music scene at this point in time. This one takes me on an emotional, internal, electronic journey.
Lenii - Mood Swings
Lenii is an up and coming artist with a real flair for hooks, catchy melodies and evocative words. I think she synopsizes the female psyche extremely well in her new song Mood Swings - packaging the delicate subject so well in colourful pop production.
JAR JAR JR - Sing Soprano
I've had jar jar jr crooning through my laptop speakers since I was in secondary school. His music makes me think everything is ok. Life is OK. Don't take yourself too seriously.
Paddy Dennehy - Painting of a New Country
As a lover of lyrics, I've always been drawn to artists who have the ability to tell a story, paint a picture and offer wisdom through emotion alone. Paddy Dennehy does just this - a truly talented songsmith. Painting of a New County is an obvious choice from his new album Little Light but there's many gems in there to be uncovered including Snow Song.
Rowan - Before (Live from Attica)
Colin Andrew - Loving You in Vain
Blakkheart - Moonlight (ft. Darce)
Chrome Yellow - 2.0
