Sive is a songwriter and musician dubbed ‘one of the most inspiring and exciting artists of our time’ by Female First UK. Her album The Roaring Girl was released with the support of a hugely successful crowd-funding campaign in 2017 and following its release she earned her stripes as a live act, touring extensively across Ireland and beyond and winning the audience choice vote to perform on RTE’S Other Voices. Her latest album We Begin in Darkness was released on VETA Music in 2022 to critical acclaim across the board; it was named Album of the Week on BBC Radio’s Late Show, received a 9/10 review in Hot Press Magazine and was described as ‘hugely impressive’ by Paul McLoone on RTE Arena. She is currently working on her next release: a commission to compose a song cycle celebrating the legacy of Brigid the saint and the goddess. Possessing a unique and dynamic vocal, and having studied finger-style guitar under renowned players including William Coulter, Sarah McQuaid and Alan Colfer, Sive has carved a truly compelling style of alt-folk that makes for a beguiling live show.
