THE VINTAGE ROOM
Sabrina’s songs are full of a sense of open space and possibilities. For Sabrina is an adventuress. An award-winner. In many ways a free spirit.
Her rich traditional music background derives from her ancestral home, the countryside of Cork, in Ireland. And her distinctive rippling, almost Philip Glass evoking, acoustic guitar style sets the tone for a heart-melting voice, with its Celtic timbre, that pulls the emotion out of the lyric.
In the last couple of years Sabrina has honed her material and live act, touring Ireland, England and in the USA. Now she’s teamed with ace cellist David Hornberger (recorded with Badly Drawn Boy / cellist for BBC Radio 4 Daily Services) and producer David Crickmore (Steve Tilston / The Durbervilles / Fiat Lux).
The result is the exciting album Roots & Wings melding folk / roots / singer-songwriter with nu-classical and a sprinkling of tasteful dance beats which will be released on the 5th April 2019.
