Naoise Roo Last Headline Show Ever Probably

 

Join us for Naoise Roos farewell gig doubling as the album launch for her recent softmore record ‘Emotionally Magnificent’. Guests TBA.

 

 

Having underscored her status as one of Ireland’s most singular songwriting voices on her acclaimed debut album, Lilith, Naoise Roo returned in October with her highly-anticipated second album, Emotionally Magnificent. After a tenure in the Irish music scene of over a decade, Naoise Roos final headline show will be filled with songs never performed live before and old favourites. A night featuring guests and collaborators, come celebrate!

Equally enthralling and exploratory – at turns personal and brimming with pathos

– the eleven songs that make up the Dublin-raised artist’s full-length return delve

deep into themes surrounding depression, the challenges of the music industry

and the oppressive stereotypes that burden women experiencing mental illness.

Staring down reality with rare, forward-pushing power, it doubles as a new

invitation to get on board with a vocalist and songwriter at her all-time most vital.

For the album, the Belfast-based artist once again conspired with well-respected

collaborators who have helped to define the sheer immersion of her sublime and

shapeshifting sound to date. Produced by Liam Mulvaney (Girl Band, The Radio,

Fionn Regan) with Jamie Hyland assisting (Gilla Band, Mhaol), Emotionally

Magnificent features Daniel Fox (Gilla Band) on bass and guitar, Rian Trench

(Solar Bears) on drums and synths and Karl Tobin on guitar. Paired with the sorcerous

groundswell of Naoise Roo’s voice – which sits firmly centre-stage – highlights such as

‘Whoever,’ ‘Razor Sharp Shirt’ and ‘Nobody Can Make Me Do What I Don’t Want To’ are

as carefully-crafted as they are exquisitely candid.
