Ireland’s sean-nós singing sensation, Sibéal today releases her debut single, ‘The Parting Glass’ on Decca Records and Universal Music Ireland. The single is taken from her debut EP, ‘Sibéal – Live At Abbey Road Studios’ which is set for release this coming March. The singer’s forthcoming EP encapsulates a beautiful collection of recordings performed live at the legendary Abbey Road Studios last July.
Describing her experience of sean-nós singing, Sibéal says, “You’re rewarded for putting your own stamp on it. I’ve been taught innately that it’s always important to think about the words, I feel like when I sing these songs it’s not just me, it’s like another type of force that’s coming through them. It’s really empowering, and it is really emotional for me to sing.”
Nick Taylor recorded the EP at Abbey Road Studios, and returned to Air-Edel Recording Studios to mix and master. Sibéal is managed by Air-Edel.
