The Galway native is supporting John Smith for his upcoming gigs in Cork, Limerick and Dublin.
Singer-songwriter and guitarist Niamh Regan has been on a steady incline in the past year or so, with listeners and critics alike taking a favourable view upon seemingly everything the Galwegian has touched to date. Last year saw her headline her first solo show Upsatirs in Whelan's in April and perform at the likes of Body & Soul, followed by the release of her debut self-titled EP and an excursion to Los Angeles later in the year, where she sought to work with producers that would broaden her musical horizons beyond her purely traditional folk roots.
She's since returned home, and has released her new single 'What To Do' this past week just before she goes on the road with John Smith to support him for his upcoming shows in Coughlan's in Cork this Wednesday and Thursday, as well as Dolan's in Limerick and the Unitarian Church in Dublin on Friday and Saturday respectively.
The single is a beautifully-crafted and gently-paced art-folk piece that wouldn't sound out of place on Fiona Apple's 2012 masterpiece The Idler Wheel..., with Niamh's poetic lyrics and tangibly emotive vocals providing a captivating listen throughout.
