Brí's musical beginnings feature a heart-shaped Barbie cassette player, with the singer belting out Christina Aguilera at the tender age of six. At 16, after suffering a loss in the family, Brí picked up a guitar and began writing her first song. Flash forward to the present and she's releasing her dreamy debut single, 'Low Supply', and a headline gig in Whelan's.
Playing with Eoin Keely in her old band The Ink-lings boosted Brí's confidence; she started to feel more at home on stage.
"The biggest fear is the unknown," she says. "You're afraid of something going wrong. But then you see the worst happen, like forgetting a lyric or missing a note, and you realise it's really not so bad."
Although close friends, Brí and Eoin decided to part ways when it became apparent both had far too many of their own ideas. Although she misses the collaboration, she's glad to have the independence.
In terms of her own creative approach, Brí admires honesty in songwriting, being particularly inspired by candid female artists like Birdy, Lisa Hannigan and Laura Marling.
Brí's debut single, 'Low Supply', is available on all streaming platforms from June 7. She headlined Whelan's with a full band on June 11.
