In a world of shuttered music venues and snatched-away opportunities, Ireland’s music community continues to defy the odds – with young, emerging artists defiantly rising above seemingly insurmountable challenges, and flying the flag for their country. This bold energy, independent ethos and genre-defying talent is evident across our list of Hot For 2021 Irish Acts – which features artists from every corner of Ireland.
This young singer-songwriter is on the cusp of a major international breakthrough. Brad Heidi initially built his following busking on the streets of Galway. His thirst for adventure has subsequently taken him all around Ireland – picking up inspiration from every musician he meets – and sharing two acclaimed singles in 2020. With Brad on the rise, Ed Sheeran will have to look to his laurels.
Hear: ‘Hearts Get Broken Sometimes’.
