The maverick Galway singer goes orchestral on her new record.
Julie Feeney has confirmed the late spring release of her second album, the 12-track ‘pages’.
Talking to Hot Press, she reveals that, “I’m the composer, producer, conductor and singer. I had a particular sound in my head, which involved using an orchestra with songs in a way I hadn't heard before. All of the music I notated myself and it was rehearsed and recorded by an orchestra over six hours in one day. I conducted the orchestra. All the singing and layering of voices I did later in my own studio.
“I spent a good number of weeks at the artists’ retreat in Annaghmakerrig – the Tyrone Gutherie Centre – working on the words with only pen and paper, and I had to use a kind of elaborate filtering system because I had such a huge amount of poetry and text material since the last album.
