Two distinct voices one unique sound.
Lumiere is Éilís Kennedy and Pauline Scanlon; two exceptional vocalists from Dingle, County Kerry, Ireland.
Éilís Kennedy's sound has ready access to the soul without need for fanfare or spotlight. Éilís performs regularly in County Kerry and is much sought after for her natural and genuine interpretations of songs, both old and new, sung in her native Gaelic and in English.
Pauline Scanlon is an award-winning singer from the same Kerry town of Dingle. She is part of a tradition of Irish female voices from Sinead O'Connor to Enya; all personal interpreters of their physical and spiritual landscape. Scanlon has two critically acclaimed albums to her credit as well as extensive touring experience.
In the current global economy, songs of excess and materialism ring hollow. Lumiere offers something more holistic and true. This is real music by real singers communicating real emotions. Lumiere takes something that is sacred and age old and re-imagines it simply and beautifully, reclaiming truth and trust for the modern age.
Lumiere though is not about big statements. It is about the intimate act of singing, the emotional core of that act and how that relates to the familiar echoes in our lives. The songs concern themselves with themes of love and loss, of places and people. They are mainly drawn from the Irish tradition but also touch on the great American songbook. 'The Poor Wayfaring Stranger' sits easily alongside 'The West's Awake' while the Gaelic song 'Óró mo Bháidín' compliments 'Spencer the Rover'.
