Watch Krea perform an intimate live set on the Hot Press Y&E Series tonight – supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media.
We are delighted to announce a special performance from singer-songwriter Krea as part of the Hot Press Y&E series tonight!
Presented in conjunction with the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, the new series will feature an impressive total of 40 exclusive, intimate sets. You can watch Krea's performance tonight, Thursday October 19, at 7pm, streamed live on the Hot Press Instagram.
Initially rising to prominence as one third of Bray-based indie band, Wyvern Lingo, Krea emerged as a remarkable solo act last year with her serene single 'September Sun'. Following the band's hiatus, Krea was awarded the Music Bursary by the Arts Council, as well as a residency at the CCI in Paris. No stranger to the Irish music scene, she has also worked with artists like Denise Chaila and Hozier, having featured on the duet "In A Week" from the latter’s debut album.
A gorgeously dreamy suite of soulful piano, harp, enchanting vocals and lush poetic soundscapes; Krea's follow-up debut EP, The Callows, showcased an experienced artist at the height of their musical powers. Renowned for her intimate songwriting style, ornate melodies, and distinctive storytelling, Krea is sure to have listeners enraptured with tonight's performance. Krea's live Y&E set will also coincide with the premiere of a new music video for title track 'The Callows' — so stay tuned!
Watch Krea on Hot Press' The Y&E Series – supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media – live on the Hot Press Instagram (@hotpressmagazine) at 7pm tonight.
Also coming up in October:
Friday 20th: Bernard M
Marked by his standout passion for creating genre-bending music and for bringing that sound to life onstage, the 23-year-old Crumlin native and multi-instrumental singer-songwriter/producer brings it all to the table. His shows are something of a spiritual experience, his magnetising energy and boundary-defying sonics captivating anyone lucky enough to be present. His new single ‘Young,’ a story of young love, is an earworm of an electric pop anthem.
Saturday 21st: Daragh Daly
Following his first encounter with his granddad’s guitar, the now-21-year-old Co. Meath artist has established himself as a self-taught multi-instrumentalist who isn’t afraid to break beyond the confines of genre. As well as being crowned a regional winner in the A New Local Hero talent earlier this year, he's garnered impressive radio and streaming attention.
Sunday 22nd: Melina Malone
Following collaborations with Mango x Mathman, Zaska, Irish Women In Harmony, Booka Brass and more, the Irish-Greek artist has earned her reputation as one of the country's most thrilling forces in R&B. She lands on the Y&E Series fresh from the release of her long-awaited debut album, Aphrodite, which put a fascinatingly fresh spin on the role of women in Greek mythology.
Monday 23rd: Kayleigh Noble
Dublin’s ‘pop princess’ will grace the Y&E series as she prepares to release her debut album, Just a Girl. With a recently sold-out headline show at Dublin’s Grand Social and her ever-growing streaming audience, Noble’s future is luminous. The pop star’s debut – worked on almost exclusively by women – will narrate a layered story of dysfunctional love, marked by her vocal depth and lyrical prowess.
Tuesday 24th: Ispíní na hEireann
After honing their chops at some of the best trad and folk sessions in Dublin, the dazzlingly raucous group – who boast a massive online following – burst onto the scene in a big way last year, with the release of their debut album, the aptly-titled The Hard Working Men. They've maintained a socially conscious stance on their latest single, 'The Mica'.
Wednesday 25th: Brinda Irani
Initially rising to prominence as a popular busker in Dublin, the teenage singer-songwriter cemented her status as a star-in-the-making with her stunning debut original single, ‘A Shadow’ last year – followed by a string of brilliant tracks in 2023. This year also saw her crowned one of the regional winners in the A New Local Hero talent search.
