A beguiling vocalist with a storytelling approach to songwriting, Sarah Buckley captured an immediate audience with her debut single ‘You’ve Got Me’. With a national TV performance, national airplay (1.3 million radio impressions), festival appearances and growing industry interest, it was no surprise when she was nominated for Best Newcomer by Pure M, and listed as a One To Watch by legendary venue Whelans. Hailing from Cork, and describing herself as an ‘indie folk songwriter’, Sarah built on this early success by collaborating with some of Ireland’s leading music producers, Karl Odlum (David Kitt) , Darragh Nolan (Ailbhe Reddy) & Richey McCourt (Will Young). The results of this will be released in the coming months. Balancing themes of nature & mysticism, with relatable and razor sharp lyrics, the collections allow Sarah’s infectious and haunting vocal style to shine through. Music came later in Sarah’s life, and that subtle difference stands her apart from many of her fellow artists. This is an adventure undertaken by a woman who found her voice in life first, before bringing it to song. With residency support ranging from Tommy McLaughlin (Villlagers), to Rocky O’Reilly (Gary Lightbody) it’s no great surprise that Sarah’s music has already started to earn attention, with her compositions becoming semi-finalists in the International Songwriting Competition and a sponsored spot on a Nashville songwriting trip during summer 2022. In an industry that stacks the odds higher for female artists, through talent and individualism Sarah is positioned to become everybody’s new favourite singer songwriter.
