Brigid Mae Power’s new album ‘Dream From The Deep Well’ is out now

‘Dream From The Deep Well’  is the new album from celebrated Irish singer songwriter Brigid Mae Power. Recognised as a purveyor of dreamier pop with folky leanings, this new album is a departure; a unique marriage of traditional stylings and very modern melodies; a breath-taking soundtrack which underpins her gorgeous vocal.

Filled with personal tales of offspring and grandparents, the lovelorn and the lost, it’s the essence of re-imagined folk music, from the traditional intro and outro that act as bookends. It’s folk music, but not as we know it. In these ever-confusing and often annoying times, Brigid brings us modern folk for modern folk, with her evocative vocal, doubling back on itself with strings, steel guitar, horns and mellotron adding to its baroque loveliness. It’s waving back at her rootsy past, daubing new colours on a much-loved canvas. ‘Dream From The Deep Well’  is a new visionary beginning from a gifted songwriter.

Elsewhere, there’s the lovelorn longing of her version of Tim Buckley’s ‘I Must Have Been Blind’, alongside a moving tribute to the late Ashling Murphy, a 23-year-old Irish primary school teacher and traditional Irish musician who was attacked and killed while jogging along the Grand Canal just outside Tullamore, County Offaly. It’s a harrowing story, delivered with overwhelming compassion. In the best tradition of old school folk music, it opens up a pressing issue to a wider audience.

It’s an album that’s politically primed and socially aware; a broadside for us all, this is Brigid Mae Power’s most complete album yet.

★★★★ Hot Press Magazine

Immersive and fantastical


Like a phosphorescent flame, her tones flickering, swelling and subsiding, slipping effortlessly over shifting notes … mesmerizing

Dusted Magazine

Beautiful in a mystical way, she channels the work of early 70s folk songwriters – think Shelagh McDonagh

Clash Magazine


Brooklyn Vegan

More linear, underpinned by acoustic guitar… as impassioned as ever… this is the album to bring Brigid Mae Power her widest audience so far.
