Mayo's Rebecca McRedmond has built up a towering reputation since she took to the stage in 2019 - continuing to flourish and impress with each performance.
Westport singer-songwriter Rebecca McRedmond has shared her brand new single 'Hush'; an emotional track circling around infant loss and miscarriage.
McRedmond is fast becoming one of the most hotly tipped talents on the Irish folk scene – having supported Mundy in Ireland and the UK, and performed alongside the likes of Aoife Scott, Mark Geary, Kevin May, Emma Langford, John Blek, David Hope, Faraway Martin and more. The musician recently took part in the Hot Press Lockdown Sessions Y&E Series, impressing with her performance.
In early 2020, Rebecca shared her latest single, 'The Thorn And The Rose' – ahead of the release of her highly anticipated album, One Last Time.
Her captivating track 'Hush' focuses on delicate topic at the forefront of media in recent times - relating to the grief upon the discovery of the Tuam babies in the Galway Bon Secours home and the Mother & Baby Homes Commission of Investigation report.
The single was the first song McRedmond penned when the singer-songwriter began writing music, using her own heartbreaking personal experience of losing a baby to curate the track.
Rebecca decided that it was the right time to release 'Hush' ahead of her album, having seen how the documentaries of late impacted our country.
The song has allowed McRedmond to connect with the parents of the lost babies and anyone who has experienced the grief of losing a child.
The song is placed delicately within the tracks of her forthcoming album One Last Time - the project she is currently recording in Galway with producer Dave Skelton.
