Described by The Irish Times as a “rising name on the Irish music scene”, singer/pianist Marita Connolly has been performing relentlessly since she released her debut album, In Disguise, in April 2012. Her high, sweet voice, reminiscent of an early Joni Mitchell, combined with the sometimes dark subject matter of her songs, is an intoxicating blend that entrances audiences.
Marita spent a very busy 2012 performing around Ireland, and having her songs played on national radio station RTE Radio 1, as well as local radio stations Dublin City FM, Limerick Live 95FM, Cork 96FM, and Christmas FM. She spent the month of August playing gigs in London during the Olympics, which provided much inspiration for her new material. Marita continues to perform in 2013 to a continuously growing fanbase, and is already looking forward to making her next recording.
