A contemporary nu-folk singer/songwriter, Gráinne Hunt has a rich background in performance and songwriting.
Her voice is incredibly powerful - there’s a husky element but also a vulnerability, which is present too in her lyrics. This combination has gained her a reputation as one of Ireland’s most outstanding female vocalists and songwriters. She has toured extensively and performed on stages in Ireland, the UK, Europe and the US. She has shared stages with Glen Hansard, sung with U2, and opened for Gladys Knight and Eagle-Eye Cherry, the Bay City Rollers and Kane Brown.
She is an experienced and versatile professional musician with a demonstrated history of working in the Arts. She has a music degree and formal training in guitar and vocals, and is a Level 1 MVT vocal coach. She is founder of songwritercircle.club, a prompt based deadline driven online songwriting group.
Alongside her solo original music project, she is one half of Irish music project Gráinne and Brendan Songs from Ireland, with award winning guitarist Brendan Walsh. She is also one half of new folk project Hibsen - a James Joyce inspired project and album based on Dubilners
