Blakkheart works from her plant emporium home studio/library in Cork, operating as a producer, vocalist and audio engineer for a variety of international artists.
Cork-based music producer, sound engineer and vocalist Blakkheart (real name Eimear O'Sullivan) has shared her brand new '90s-inspired single, 'From A Dream'.
Teleported from a dream you had two decades ago - influenced by All Saints, Sneaker Pimps, Atomic Kitten, and Garbage (and also her favourite horror writer, Stephen King); 'From A Dream' has an undeniably warm soundscape.
Featuring ever-so-slight Americana influences and a smooth trip-hop beat, Blakkheart self-produced, performed, mixed and mastered the track herself.
The lyrics are written like a story - this being paired with phantasmagoric and relaxing sound design that will lull you into a chilled dreamstate.
After touring as a session musician and vocalist (performing at Electric Picnic, Indiependence, and opening for Sean Kingston, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble and Le Boom with fellow artist Darce), Blakkheart began to hone her production skills.
Previous singles include February 2021's 'Not To Your Taste', inspired by the sound of Prince and Kylie Minogue, plus 2020 singles 'The Thing Beyond The Pines', 'Honey Boy', 'No More Room' and 'So In Love (With Yourself)'.
2019's 'Crush' and 'One Hot Afternoon in Texas' followed on from O'Sullivan's 2018 debut track alongside Darce, titled 'Moonlight'.
