Moya Brennan - The Voice of Clannad
When Bono stated recently, "I think she has one of the greatest voices the human ear has ever experienced", he was heralding what many people know already about Moya Brennan, The Voice of Clannad,
She sings like nothing you've ever heard before, so it makes sense that her live solo shows - with all the musicality and power of Clannad but with added, heart-warming intimacy - should be such a rich and moving experience.
With Clannad she rose to prominence with a pioneering approach to traditional music which has garnered them 15 million record sales worldwide and a string of awards, including a Grammy. Their sound has since become the benchmark for the Celtic music genre. Sister Enya joined Clannad for a time before pursuing her own successful career.
Moya's solo career has continued that success with 8 solo albums to her name and more in the pipeline. Her live show has developed into a visual (as well as sound) spectacle with rhythm, atmosphere and vibrant harmony.
Her career to date includes 25 albums, numerous film scores and she has sung with many great artists, including The Chieftains, Robert Plant, Paul Brady, Shane MacGowan and, of course, Bono.
Her voice continues to be in demand in dance music and includes collaborations with Chicane (Saltwater), DJ Roger Shah and Schiller.
