Combining soul and folk in her music, Derry’s Bridie Monds-Watson crafted her stage name as a blend of both words. At age 13, she began playing guitar and began distributing her demos online and performing at open mic nights at a local bar. In a few short years, she was touring with Tegan And Sara and Chvrches and recording her first EPs.
Signed to indie label Rough Trade, she released Before We Forgot How to Dream in 2015, earning praise from many corners, including a place on the BBC Sound of 2015 long list and the Irish Choice Music Prize Album of the Year. The Guardian described her music as “ethereal, emotive folk that taps into the complexity of growing up.“ Her next record, Grim Town, will be released by Rough Trade this April.
