“Brilliantly played and superbly produced…ambitious, free-flowing alternative pop songs…a seriously accomplished debut album” – The Irish Times
RTE Choice Music Prize nominated musician Marlene Enright opens 2018 with a new track, ‘Little Things’. A live favourite on her album tour, ‘Little Things’ is set for release February 19th and rounds off a spectacular year for the Cork songwriter.
Enright plays Bello Bar on Thursday May 3rd 2018 with her full band: Davie Ryan (Drums), Gemma Sugrue (Backing vocals), Eoin Walsh (Bass) & Hugh Dillon (Guitars).
“Debut album full of badass swagger and grit from the Cork singer-songwriter who knows her onions when it comes to the ebb and flow of modern Americana. The more you dig into this, the more you realised Enright’s great gift for nailing a song’s natural push and pull.”Jim Carroll, RTE Culture
