For singer-songwriter Laura Mulcahy, storytelling is to fore of all her artistic endeavours.
Although able to play piano and sing in tune by age four, Laura’s musical career developed much later in 2014 to almost instant critical acclaim. Glowing reviews both at home and abroad for her second album Funeral, Home, Lizard were an unexpected surprise for the Ennis-based performer.
“I thought that songwriting could be a great new direction to take my writing in,” she notes. “Each piece is a like a short story with a beginning, middle and end. If you listen to my latest album, you will see that all the songs are standalone pieces that address a different subject.”
She adds: “what’s going on around me influences me the most. In terms of melodies and soundscaping, my songs need to reflect the mood of the piece.”
