FRACTURED AIR

The universe is making music all the time

Fractured Air 21: Safe In The Womb (A Mixtape by Brigid Power-Ryce)

leave a comment »

Galway-based musician and visual artist Brigid Power-Ryce has quietly established herself as one of the brightest hidden talents from Irish shores over the past several years. Having released solo material via such Irish independent labels as Rusted Rail and Abandon Reason to date; Ryce is also a member of drone-based trio Gorges. Ryce’s own solo material centers around her unique vocal delivery (recalling such diverse sources as early recordings by Cat Power, Irish traditional singer Margaret Barry and folk luminaries such as Vashti Bunyan and Bridget St John) while her sparsely delicate instrumentation of accordion, guitar, ukulele or piano serve to emphasis Ryce’s own characteristically intimate and soul-stirring compositions.
