Surrounded by inspiring oceans, Ireland, a country full of mysteries and magic impresses us by many incredible voices, such as U2, Enya, Boy Zone, Cocteau Twins and, the Cranberries.

No matter it is a sonorous descant, or simply a whisper; she certainly added gentleness of the breeze, clearness of the sky, immaculacy of the snow and the last rustling leaves onto our mind.
We don’t really need to care what exactly she’s singing, as long as we listen to the tracks, it seems like the bell ring in a country school, or springs from a high mountains. You can even feel the wonderland in the mist, which she keeps us lingering for a long time. Maybe we will find a great amount of sympathy that has enlaced us so far. Entire and perfect, the forthcoming rain by the Irish seashore, the atmosphere of silence in the evening, suddenly all these images are brought so close to us.
