BLÁNID (Ireland)

Singer/songwriter BLÁNID is a fresh new voice on the UK music scene. Hailing from Ireland, she fuses indie folk, jazz and modern tones. With a hauntingly powerful voice and confessional style, she etches unforgettable stories on the listener’s ear.

BLÁNID had an extraordinary 2021. Her debut single “Fool’s Gold” released in March was met with critical acclaim, with plays on BBC Radio Wales, BBC Radio Ulster & Foyle, BBC Radio Kent and 4 plays on BBC Radio 1 (Power Down Playlist & The Chillest Show), where it was described as a ‘cinematic masterpiece’ alongside her ‘completely captivating’ voice. BLÁNID also appeared as a featured vocalist on Netflix’s anime Witcher film soundtrack (The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf).

Her most recent single “Dead Men Dancing”, has been featured on BBC Radio 6, BBC Radio Kent, BBC Radio Ulster and RTÉ 2XM. BLÁNID’s next track ‘Hollow’ will be released on 29th April with an EP to follow later in 2022. With comparisons to Kate Bush and Sinéad O’Connor, BLÁNID is “well on her way to stardom” (Earmilk).
