Sophie Coyle delivers stories carved in her own lore, conjured by her own unique lyrical dynamism. Her songs are charmed with a rare and seductive magic. These dark enchantments have seen her play support for a host of celebrated artists such as legendary Scottish folk singer Dick Gaughan, Mundy, John Spillane, Ger Wolfe, Luka Bloom and Gentry Morris. In 2010 her spine-tingling gothic-folk song, “Delirium” was used in the soundtrack to the Irish/ UK horror film “Spiderhole”. Among other festivals she has played the Electric Picnic, Vantastival, Feile na Bealtaine, Fiddler’s Green. Originally from Galway, she now lives in Dundalk with her husband Jinx Lennon and two year old daughter Rose. Her debut album “Blame Me For The Storm” was released on 9th February 2018.
Bhí sí le teacht i mí Marta lena céad albam, Blame Me for the Storm, go dtí gur stop Storm Emma í, ach tá dea-aimsir geallta dúinn don dara iarracht ar an leithinis.
“Folk singer, songwriter and illustrator Sophie Coyle’s debut album, Blame Me for the Storm, uses softness as a weapon. Gentle melodies reel you in, but the formidable women she presents…lay down the law and act as moral compasses….Coyle has a sharp knack for storytelling, bringing us on journeys across the world or into other realms, and these songs double up as fantastical and timeless fables. Whether she’s conjuring up magic or brewing up something darker, Coyle’s voice and narrative takes charge on the assertive Blame Me for the Storm.” – 4/5 Louise Bruton, Irish Times
