Australian-based Irish singer Áine Tyrrell is showing no signs of letting up since the release of her EP Fledgling Fall, a special collaboration with Glen Hansard and an Ireland tour.
This week she unveiled a music video for 'Tracks In My Heart' from the EP.
Tyrrell co-wrote the opening track of her EP, 'Don't Be Left Crying', with Glen Hansard when the pair met on his sold out 2016 Australian tour. Not only have the two worked together on a batch of songs, but Tyrrell is also touring Ireland with Declan O Rourke and recording with Hansard and members of The Frames.
“It has been such an amazing opportunity for me to work with one of my songwriting heroes,” Áine says. “He is a warrior of poetry and people. I feel blessed to have made such an inspiring friend and kindred spirit musically and being able to bounce ideas and share songs with him has been phenomenal for my songwriting and my soul.”
'Don't Be Left Crying' is a beautifully rendered song about addiction and domestic abuse, which Tyrrell drew on her own heartbreaking experience to write.
In the remaining dates of her Ireland tour, Tyrrell will appear in Whelans before finishing up with a gig at Electric Picnic on September 2. See the full list of dates below.
August 24- Spirit Store, Dundalk
August 26- Roisin Dubh, Galway, Co. Galway
August 31- Whelans, Dublin
